Welcome back to another week’s installment of Jenna’s 411!
Book Chat ~ Pitch Requests
At my chapter’s conference on Saturday, I pitched to three editors and got requests for fulls from each of them. I pitched my Regency Christmas YA story, ‘Tis the Season, to Allison Travis of Lazy Day Publishing, and my Victorian romance As Long As You’re Mine, to both Bethany Burke at Blushing Books and Frances Sevilla of The Wild Rose Press and they were all very eager to request full copies. So fingers crossed!
On the Home Front ~ The Rudy Award!
Also at the conference, the winners of the “Finish the Damn Book” COntest were announced and the first place winners received their “Rudy.” Here’s mine! Isn’t he cute? I also received a certificate and a check for $50.00 for First Place in Historical for my Regency romance To Woo A Wicked Widow. My first contest win ever!
Jenna Fun Fact of the Week
My favorite cuisine is Indian. I love the tastes, the aromas, the textures. And the bonus is it’s almost all gluten free (except for their wonderful breads). And usually you can control the spiciness (I like it mild!). My first encounter with Indian food was in London, where I didn’t realize you could ask for less spicy. I ended up having to drink glass after glass of Coke to put out the fire, and they served the Coke in champagne glasses! LOL My favorite dish is Lamb Rogan Josh. Now I’ve gone and made myself hungry!
So, how’s your week been?
