In Which José And I Stare Each Other Down

Filed under: Uncategorized — Selah March @ 6:40 pm

Say you send out a partial manuscript to a publisher, and the kind, sweet, lovely, incredibly insightful editor requests the full. A few weeks later, the same editor informs you that she’s leaving said publisher, and your manuscript will be passed along to someone else.

Should you:

a) Break out the Cuervo. At least she informed you of the switch, and hey…she could’ve just rejected it outright as she cleaned off her desk in preparation to go. This probably means you’ve still got a pretty good shot.

b) Break out the Cuervo. The kind, sweet, lovely, incredibly insightful editor was the one who liked the manuscript enough to request the full. What are the chances the new editor will like it as well? Pretty small, because you’re just not lucky like that. Ho-freakin’-ho, and pass the salt.

c) Break out the Cuervo. There’s nothing you can do about it either way, so you might as well put that lime that came in the fruit basket from your Aunt Bonnie to good use.

d) Tell José to sit his damn self down and quit beggin’ like a dog for attention, because you’re busy writing. Dammit. Two deadlines in the next month, remember? The lime will keep, and there’s always more salt in the cupboard.

In the past six hours, I’ve considered each option carefully. Anyone care to guess which one I chose?

In other news, two nice reviews:

From Ellie McBride at, for LIE TO ME:
“Wise-cracking MJ Peters has secrets to keep, but Drew Donnelly is shaking her world to its core. When MJ finds a blood-stained note with an ominous message, she hopes it isn’t meant for her. And when the handsome Drew shows up he seems to have more information than he should. In this fast-paced, short novel…from Selah March we get chuckles and plenty of action, a mystery, and lots of sexual tension. Selah March definitely has her pacing and dialogue down. LIE TO ME is quick, clever, and jammed with movement. A snappy, satisfying read.”

5 HEARTS from A.J. Cove at for TO HAVE AND HAVE NOT:
“The love scenes in this novella are so passionate and well-written, the reader will get caught in them from the first word to the last. Jack is such an excellent lover, that I forgave him for everything he put Laura through, every time he touched her.

Laura has her chance throughout this story to tell her side of the state of her and Jack’s relationship. She makes plain her willingness to lay everything down for him. Yet even as she sits waiting for his attention, the real focus of this story is Jack and his sexy transformation into the ultimate vampire lover, with plenty of hot descriptions of his hungry bites in various places on Laura’s body.

This story is very hot, very sexy and extremely well-written. It keeps the reader panting for more even as the couple face danger in a ravaged city. My only regret in To Have and To Have Not is that it was not longer, so I could enjoy Jack much much more.”

Have a fantastic weekend. 🙂 – Romance of Dubious Virtue

  2. Yeah, actually, I went with “none of the above.” Sick kids, about which you know more than you should. Today should be more productive.
