Hi all,

I was just wondering if anyone else submitted to Avon during their open Submissions time. I managed to get in a manuscript within the deadline and I just wanted to know if anyone else tried and if you've heard anything!

I've been wondering about that.

I seriously considered sending something (I write for another imprint at the same publisher, but Avon said it was okay to submit under those circumstances). In the end I couldn't get a manuscript up to scratch in time because I had another book to complete and I was heading overseas.

I'm hoping they give the open call another go next year.

I submitted and 16 weeks later I'm still waiting to get a response. I don't know if that's a good sign or bad...

Well, after 8 weeks I received a very kind rejection.

Sorry about that, but at least it was kind …?

Ack, it's so hard to read these situations! I expect that they got about a gazillion submissions, so I think the wait times are going to be long for some.
