I sold the prison sex story! Got the email last night. That’s my first sale to STARbooks, which I’m pretty chuffed about, to be honest. I have no details other than that, as the email is at home and I was pretty drunk when I got it. And then when I got it it was an excuse to have a drink! yay!
There’s a story behind it too, which taught me several lessons…
I sat and glared at the screen for about five minutes in annoyance. I’d written a lot more than 5 paragraphs but I hadn’t finished the damned thing. They just wouldn’t bloody shag.
So I sent five paragraphs anyway. Five minutes later I got an email “Can I see the rest of the story?” So then they HAD to shag.
So in future, I’m not ever taking any notice of “no more submissions please”!
