>Harlequin Declined

> It reminds me of that scene from To Wong Foo, Thanks for Everything, Julie Newmar after Billy Ray comes to ask a girl out:

Vida Boheme: I declare.
Bobby Lee: I declare.
Carol Ann: *I* declare.
Noxeema Jackson: I decline.

Harlequin’s lovely editor sent my manuscript back to me with a nice rejection letter explaining why the story isn’t right for Intrigue. Ah well, I got a fast read anyway (some people have to wait months and months to hear “no”…and I’m officially one step closer to publication. Nothing ventured, nothing gained. The next target is (drumroll here): as yet to be determined…going checking on the web tonight.

Also from the movie: Noxeema Jackson: “Larger than life is just the right size. “
