I apologize for the delay in reading your submission; we are still playing catch up from our mini-vacation at Christmas time.
I really enjoyed Hawke’s Abandon-the storytelling was compelling and your characters really resonated with me. I feel this already wonderful story will be a true gem and we would be honored to publish it at Cobblestone Press.
It’s been a long time since I’ve read a novel that was truly steamy without being erotic. Great job on that front!
I’ve attached the contract for you to review. Please don’t hesitate to contact us with questions or concerns.
On a side note, I’m very interested in seeing any other projects you are aiming toward ePublication.
All the best
Deb’s Note: I should mention that I edited from this note the changes to the manuscript she requested…I only posted the good stuff! Cobblestone Press is an e-publisher, and the book will be available in an e-book format for sale. So, 2007 has started off quite well…and I am very happy.
