'Steal My Heart' Finished! Again!

I have finally finished 'Steal My Heart'! Again. Hehe. I finished this novella the first time back in October I believe, and sent it out to several publishers. The reaction was great... as far as rejections go. But no one was willing to buy the story.

When that opportunity to pitch came up with Wild Rose Press last month, I decided to revamp the story line and see if I could make it work. The editor requested the manuscript, but of course, it was not rewritten yet and I had work to do. It sucks that it's taken me a month to get it done (when I was hoping I could do it in a week or so), but the operative word here is DONE!

Last night around 2am, I finally finished it!! This second version is, in my humble opinion, a thousand times better than the first one. I am going to wait to see what my critique group has to say about it so that I can make some final revisions and give it some more polish, but I feel good about it overall. Hopefully I can get it sent off to the editor who requested it within the next week.

Now, it's on to the next work in progress. "The Millionaire's Scandalous Secret". Nine weeks until RWA Nationals, and I'm well on my way to having some good material to pitch while I'm there!
