Not hot, hot, hot!!!

I signed off my other blogs about this time last year. 

Big mistake.

One year later, and I am ready to drag myself out of depression and back up the ladder of evolution.

Since I declared that I had nothing to contribute to the Multiple Sclerosis Companion, I have lost both of my parents, have inherited more responsibility than ever for my MIL, gained weight, lost muscle and went off a tranquilizer.

Of all the above, I am happy to report that I think I have been successful in getting clean of Valium.  Of course, the flip side of that is that now I can no longer sleep through the night.  Which is why I went on it in the first place. 

It's amazing how many things I can get done between 2:00 and 6:00 in the morning.  I have pretty much finished my book and will begin again to look for publishers.  If anyone is interested in reading a time travel-romance, let me know. 

Did you know that most Americans no longer ready books?  How did that happen?

I went through my first list of publishers last year.  Did you also know that interracial romance is "hot, hot, hot!!!" right now?  I passed them all by before I realized that by the very nature of being about a person from the future, I simply eliminated the whole forbidden interracial thing.

I happen to believe that in the distant future there will be very little color distinction, and my book reflects that.  So much for "hot, hot, hot!!!"

Since romance for me includes an awful lot more interpersonal relationship than anything else, I wrote myself out of the hot, hot, hot!!! genre.  Just as well, because it's not what I am about.

So does that mean I will never publish Feathered Serpent?

Don't know.
