Nope, not poetry. A former colleague from my first job out of grad school teaching a year at the U Missouri and I decided to work on something that had a chance of earning some money. So....never having read romance novels before, we read a bunch and started writing. We had the writing skills. I needed a partner since I still have cognitive difficulties and this made it a whole lot easier , tho still slow. Not the great american novel, but not trite cliches and bodice ripping either. Our characters romance with style:-)
A publisher definitely wants the book. Now we're down to negotiating the terms of the contract ,which could take a few more conference calls and drafts of it before we're done.
Anyway, I wanted to share this.
