What is an R&R?
An R&R is usually a good thing. It stands for Revise and Re-submit. If you receive an R&R, rejoice! That means someone saw something in your story that they really liked, but they had suggestions for how the story can be improved.
That is what has happened with Eddie’s Prize. I submitted the manuscript on October 24, and last weekend I received a very nice email telling me they really liked the story. They had a list of changes they’d like to see made, however, before they would offer a contract. So, I’m going to be pretty busy for the next week or so, making revisions, cutting some stuff (which will appear later in the newsletter) and hopefully whipping Eddie and Lisa into publishing shape. My goal is to have the revisions completed by this Sunday night. Wish me luck!
