Lost at Sea

"Arriving at one goal is the starting point to another." ~Fyodor Dostoevski

Bummer. I just found out my editor (the one who worked on both One Night in Boston and One Night in Memphis with me - the one who "discovered" me, really) - left Samhain. What's worse is that I'd sent her my manuscript for Summer's Song almost 3 months ago...and now I find that it's somewhere in Samhain-Limbo Land.

While she did send an email to her authors, letting us know, it definitely took me by surprise. And I feel like now I have to start from scratch there. I do know this happens an awful lot - from small presses all the way up to NY houses. But I still feel a little lost.

I know the feeling... the editor who did "One Love for Liv" left to pursue her writing, and "Kitchen Matches" was in limbo for a LONG TIME. Samhain was in the midst of hiring new editors, and then there was training, etc. It was awful.

I do like my new editor, though. Still, it's a bit like losing a limb...

Good luck!

Good luck with your new editor. Do they have one set up for you or do you have to wait until they rehire?

I know the feeling, Allie, and it sucks. Good luck!
