Well I went and did it. Yep, I wrote that m/m/f menage story and submitted the first three chapters. I heard back from them today and after a few changes, which I can understand and completely agree with, they want to see the whole story.

So please keep your fingers crossed for me. I went out on a limb when I decided to write this story and if actually gets accepted I think I'll faint.

Thanks! I'm really nervous about this story so I'm praying it gets accepted. If I don't though, I'll have learned from my experience.

I'm sure it will get passed. Just cross your fingers Liadan.

I always love a story with a good menage au trois. LOL

Thank you my dear! I did finish the edits last night, it's only 54 pages, it's a short story. Four and a half hours to fix mistakes and such and then sent it off to the editor before bed. Now it's just the waiting game.

Once the book is accepted Liadan can you please put up an excerpt.

Liadan
March 20th, 2008, 06:21 PM
Yes of course I will. Well, I could be a tease and just tell you about it and then post nothing if it is accepted. LOL!

But I promise not to do that to y'all.

Thank you Angela! I really appreciate your support. I have found that erotica for me is a bit tough to write. But I'll keep trying.

Well, it's been three months almost and I'm a bit sad about this story. I've sent email after email and have received no response from the editor.

Had to go through a different channel all together to even get a message to her.

I've given up on this story and on that particular publisher. Sorry to disappoint y'all. Maybe I'll change it up and submit somewhere else.

Oooooh, m/m/f menage is one of my favorite flavors! Best of luck with your full manuscript! I'd love to read this one.

Liadan
June 8th, 2008, 04:29 PM
Thanks E! I think this one will have to stew a bit longer. I'm thinking of making it longer than a short story. It would be better if it were.

I'll be sure to post snippets.

Eden Rivers

Ah yes, the short story that became a novel scenario <grins> Hey, the more the better! I really do love m/m/f (I wrote one particular m/m/f scene in Broken Pentacle that really makes me sweat, lol) I'm looking forward to those snippets when you're ready to post them :-)

After four months of waiting, I took it upon myself to contact the head editor last week. Yes, had to re-submit the story because the first editor had a major computer catastrophe and my MS was lost.

I got the contract tonight. AMP - Aspen Mountain Press - has accepted Scotch on the Rocks.

So I guess you can say that I also write erotica. God, never thought I'd say that.

Woo-hoo!!! :whistle: Doin' the happy dance for you! Congrats on the contract, and yeah, when I moved into erotic romance it was a bit of a surprise to me, too, lol. But turns out red hot is my favorite flavor--go figure.

Enjoy the celebration!

That is such great news.
How are you enjoying the editing process? Is it a pleasure or does it rile you at times?

G'day Barb! Thank you!

Editing? Okay, I received the FINAL edits on my second book today. I have 10 days to add to or subtract from my story. But thankfully I have an awesome editor. I haven't begun the editing process on Scotch yet, but I am hoping things go just as smoothly with it as it has with Reunited. I was dreading the editing. But it has been a joy. I actually have an editor who listens to my ideas and understands. These last days though, I'm going to pull my hair out. I just know it. LOL!
