  1. Good news and bad news. I've been offline for a bit b/c my mom was ill.  She passed on May 3. I haven't been writing, but I am back at it today and it feels great. The good news is that when I pitched online in Feb for KissPitch on Twitter an agent requested the first 25 pages. She read those and said she "loved my first pages and premise and wanted to see how  my voice and characters develop." So she requested 50 pages. Fingers crossed. I hope you all have been having GREAT writing days! 🙂

      I'm sorry about your mother. When mine passed away back in 2003, it took a while for me to get back to writing because she was the one who introduced me to romance books.

      As for the request... Yay!!! Congrats!! 🙌

  14. I'm happy to announced I've signed to Beachwalk Press, joining the ranks of some fellow RWAOL members! Here is my blog post talking about the ups and downs of the submission process. http://spicyauthors.blogspot.com/2012/04/confessions-of-sex-demon.html?showComment=1334158513267#c3158311990024434515

  15. Um, is anyone having problems seeing the forums when they're logged in? I've paid my renewal (and it looks like it's been processed, because I see the expiry for 2013) and it's not April 1, so I'm not sure if this is at all related to the renewal system, or if it's just me? When I'm logged in, I see none of the forums--it's just one blank page. If I try to go into the forums directly, I get a permissions error.

      No...you are fine. Not why it (board software) said March 30th.

      Actually, the board software says March 30th is last day. I have email Pam T. Juliana, I know you have paid but I assume it has not been updated yet.

  23. I have two notebooks full of storyline. I just have to transfer it to the computer in coherent writing. Its coming along, which Im excited about, but not fast enough for where I want it to be!
