Lunch with A Mentor

I am so excited I could cry! An author who regularly publishes in the same line at Harlequin that I want to publish with has agreed to have lunch with me this Sunday!! She publishes at least 3 or 4 books a year with Silhouette Desire, and she has a brand new book coming out in April that has already gone up for sale on the eHarlequin website.

I have been reading a lot of her books lately, and she really is one of the best authors at Desire (imho). She puts conflict on every page, making the reader sit at the edge of their seat, wanting to know what is going to happen next. Her plot lines are twisty and full of passion. The characters in her book are always people you start to care about by the end of the first chapter. I know I could learn so much from her, which is why it's so exciting to me to be having lunch with her.

Part of it, too, is that I know if she likes me and my work, she could have a positive influence on my career. They say the "slush" piles at NY publishing houses like Harlequin line the walls, three feet high all the way around the room. One word from a reputable author could mean that my manuscript is put on the editor's desk rather than in the slush pile. I'm certainly not going to expect that right now, but I'm certainly going to hope for it! Now I'll be looking forward to Sunday for the rest of the week!!
