They say to be ready when opportunity knocks.
I joined Twitter recently and although I'm not real sure how to navigate it, I did figure out how to follow quite a few people. I happened to open Twitter when Angela James, editor at Carina Press, tweeted about a submission opportunity at Carina Press this week. Submission. And I just happen to have a mss ready to submit. A DADDY FOR LUKE is the first story in my COTTONWOOD COUNTY CHRONICLE series. I had synopsis, query and mss ready. I read thru them all and made any needed changes and sent it all off Sunday afternoon. This opportunity includes feedback and a turnaround time of 6 weeks. Getting THE CALL would be the best scenario in this opportunity, but getting feedback is valuable, too. And everyone will get feedback. Not everyone will get the call. In six weeks I'll report on the outcome.
