I understand what you are going through with Hallmark. I spoke with them as well, but things seemed to have vanished when getting down to the wire, and I received word my story had no place with them for now. I wish I could help you, but too old fashion LOL. It will work out.

    Thank you. I have no clue what I'm going to do, but I will keep trying.

    There are so many sharks in the water it is hard telling the dolphins from the real thing. All are swimmers. Best to you.

"good fit for them because I didn't have any male pregnancies".... This is crazy

I can understand how you feel it's hard to navigate the publishing world. I used Amazon's publishing, Create Space. You can publish your books by yourself for free or use their paid publishing. I don't know how much they charge. I published two haiku books, one with Dean Kuch. It was pretty easy.

    I used createspace once. I had heard they shut down. I will check it out again. MY problem with that is it is only on amazon, what if I want my books someplace else too?

I hope you find Barbara. Your work is worth, and keep your stamp , whether romance or otherwise. You have gone this far, don't be disheartened. Have faith, for it is your excellence that will pull you through, not another person's judgement of it.
Best wishes.

I am writing my first book, so can be no help - except to entreat the writing gods to be kind to you!! As a former and now crippled for life abuse survivor, I will be fascinated to read Two Tattered Hearts when it is available. Best of fortune to you!!

    Thank you for the kind review. A few of my fans say it's the best. Everybody has their favorite. Anyway, right now it's missing in action. As soon as I figure out the mess it's in, I am going to publish it in paperback.

Oh, I wish I had answers for you, but I don't know the first steps to publishing, or an agent, editor or anything. Sounds like an awful lot of expense. I hope someone can help you.

smiles and hugs, Carol

Sorry about the loss of your publisher. Pregnant male? The Birthing People advocates would love that. Consider yourself in excellent company. One of my favorite writers, Mary Higgins Clark, wrote many best-selling romance-suspense novels, and she did it without resorting to steamy sex scenes and profanity. Her publisher was Simon and Schuster. The company has several imprints. Gallery Books is one that you might explore. Good luck. judi

    Thank you. I checked out Simon and Schuster. They lonely accept books from agents. I will check out Gallery Books.

reply by judiverse on 19-Sep-2021
    You're welcome, and I hope you soon have that agent working for you. Unless you want to self-publish, it seems that you need that agent. judi

I've just put a bar code from one of my books ie: ISBN plus the number, in Google Search and it brought my book up plus some others of mine. So that's all you have to do. It came up on a book site I'd not heard of! Have a go. As for those stupid publishers, what planet do they live on??? Men on this one certainly don't become pregnant!! If you can't find a publisher then I suggest you self publish with KDP Amazon. It's very easy to do with their instructions all laid out for you.

    Thank you. I tried that and nothing came up. I know I have the right number because a friend took a picture of it and sent it to me. I am not sure what's happening. I really don't want to self publish because I don't have a clue about marketing.

I am sorry you have problems with your publishers. I am writing this mainly because I don't understand about 'male pregnancies' and you were rejected because your stories didnt have that.
the only publisher names I know is Harlequin or Silhouette!
all the best.

    LOL Thank you. I have no clue about how a male gets pregnant. Unless they're transgender, but that's not what they said.

What a dilemma for you. How exasperating. I don't publish and i'm in New Zealand, so I'm of no help apart from praying for your assistance. I would suggest though, that you put your queries on the FanStory members' Forum, and maybe they will be seen by more members to offer you advice.

You could self publish on Amazon and there are tools on line to help you and guide you. It is always wise to keep several copies of your work so that you never lose it. I wish you luck with the publishing, love Dolly x

    Thank you for the kind review. I did have several copies, they were all e-books and when a computer crashes, not good.
