Got the second acceptance email of the day. My story with the hero with the best name ever got accepted for the debut/launch issue of a new Romance magazine. First issue will come out Sept 1, 2010 and my alter ego will be a part of it. I’ve chosen to use my pen name as that is the name I’ve chosen to use for romance work. So, this one, called One Night in Costa Rica, will be credited as Jillian Chantal.
Used the research I did for a full length manuscript that my alter ego is writing for a fun little short story. I decided to put the info to good use by writing something short to submit under my own name. I hope it will be accepted. I think it is a fun little story. Submitted it late this afternoon. The guidelines were under 6000 words, romance, jungle theme.
I have 5200+ words, romance and it occurs partially in the jungle of Costa Rica. AND I have the greatest, coolest name ever for the hero. The name alone inspired me. So, how could it miss??
Stay tuned for an update on the submission. As soon as I know yea or nay, I’ll post.
