Guest Post

Na na na na na, BAT-TERN! Hee. I crack myself up. Anywho, another month, another entry jam packed with news and announcements.

Louise is a co-host for the 2013 RT American Idol contest and erotica entries are woefully scarce! If you are registered to attend this year’s RT Convention and you have an erotica manuscript, finished or in progress, please consider submitting the first three chapters of your manuscript to the contest before April 24th.

There is another new Team Fury member! Discovered through Pitch Madness, a contest hosted  by Brenda Drake, Lindsey Sprague joined the team on April 15th.

Conference season kicks into full gear for Louise with this weekend’s Washington Romance Writers Retreat. If you want to pitch to Louise, click on the Conference Appearances tab for the events she will be attending. She is still CLOSED to queries (any unsolicited emails will be deleted and no response sent) so scheduling a pitch appointment at an event remains the best way to get your work to her.

For those waiting on a response to a solicited manuscript, the slush has been sorted up to late January 2013. Due to conference season and the fact that Louise’s clients ALWAYS come first, there will likely be a delay before the next wave of emails roll out.

To close up for the month, Louise is happy to share her latest deal announcements!
