I finally finished my Caveman submission! And I'm happy with this one.

It was a stretch; it wanted to end two times, but it was too short! 6K the first time, and 8K the second. Thankfully, I was able to get a burst of inspiration and it is 10, 544 words long, just within the word limits.

What's it called, you ask? Working title is 'All She Ever Wanted'. It's similar to 'Recipe for Love', but there are no kids, and they are former lovers torn apart by a scheming parent. I hope it's accepted. The only thing that worries me slightly is, they don't actually get in bed until chapter 2. But there is some groping....maybe the editors will like it?? Or at least, find a place for it, even to publish as a Quickie?

I'll submit both (if allowed!) and see which ones gets accepted, if either of them do. So stay tuned; as soon as I get my desktop to stop throwing a hissy fit, I'll send it on it's way. Otherwise, I'll have to do it from daughter's laptop. And she really doesn't need it on her PC...but then again, it's on my flash drive, so maybe it won't matter??

I'm doing the Happy Dance! The only thing that would make me happier at this point would be an affirmative email from Eternal Press, concerning Wild at Heart...keep your fingers crossed!
