I received my first full manuscript request from an editor at Silhouette Romantic Suspense after sending the first 3 chapters (along with query letter and synopsis) at the beginning of June. The request came in the same envelope that normally delivers rejections (the one I send with my query), so I was expecting another rejection. I am thrilled to have made this progress, so while I know this doesn't mean this manuscript with be published, it does mean something in my writing caught the eye of an editor! In other good news, one of my critique partners told me that at the RWA conference, Harlequin was looking for romantic suspense. That's great news for me!
