I’ve finally submitted my first book to Harlequin!

I did it on New Year’s eve, maybe not the best idea they’re probably on a break and it will take longer to get back to me. Here it is almost a month later and I’m losing my mind! I’m mentally composing Dear acquisitions/editor letters… they range from conciliatory to hostile and then pleading and sulking… I’m not a patient person. 

I wish I knew what part of the process I was in… am I on a slush pile? Did you read the query? Did you read the synopsis? Are you now reading the book?

I DUNNO!!!! ARRGGHH!!

I’m mentally beating myself up! Are you on the fence? Is there something I can help with? Maybe I should have done this, or that! Ohhh geez I KNEW I should’ve done THAT

I wish I knew what was going on in your head, maybe you think it shows promise and want to suggest some changes. I’m okay with that! *nods* I can be flexible! Heck the book started out 125K words, I slashed and burned about 1/2 a book to get down to your guidelines… 

Oh nooo… crap! What if I left some gaping plot hole/clue hanging out there orphaned because of the editing? *head desk* |

This crap is tearing my nerves up!! *flails*
