Strange comments

It's been almost three months since I lasted posted here. In the meantime I've been getting some very amusing spam comments on my last post about not voting for Romney. This one came today.

I am sure this post has touched all the internet visitors, its really really fastidious
piece of writing on building up new website.

Hmm. And here I thought I'd been talking about why I was voting the way I voted. Good to know I was really talking about building new websites.

Which, coincidentally, is what I've been doing lately. Or rather, about a month ago. I think. Something like that. Readers may or may not remember that for the last eight months I haven't been writing historical romance. My Pinterest fashion collection has been sorely neglected, but I've been too busy writing to really care.

I mentioned I submitted the space opera to Harlequin and Harper Voyager. Harlequin said no, which I totally expected since it's largely from his POV. With the two secondary POV characters also being men it's heavily skewed away from her. Harper, however, has not rejected it. They sent out two emails a couple weeks ago. Straight up rejections and "We're still considering your submission". I got the latter!!

After submitting both of those I realized I needed to get serious about building my SFR presence as a separate entity from this one. I'm going after two totally different readerships. My SFR endeavors are not Christian and are not targeted at CBA publishers, while my historical romance is. I finally decided on how to use my real name as my SFR author name, started a Twitter account and a blog.

So that's where I am most of the time. Still madly writing away on the space opera and days from finishing the second one. As of right now I've no idea when or if I'll go back to historical romance any time soon.
