Not My Baby, No Way -- Part Deux

As part of my Not My Baby, No Way campaign, I submitted the first chapter of one of my mss in the Mills & Boon New Voices contest. You can see the first chapter of How to Marry a Brazilian here.

I have to admit, it wasn't an easy decision. I still have a medical romance I am working on, but I didn't feel I could have the first chapter polished in time to meet the deadline. Plus, I really like the beginning of my new medical. Tentative title for the medical: Countdown to a Wedding.

So, now I have a draft almost ready to sub to Desire, one to M&B Medical and my single title. I think my plate is full.

Abbi :-)


  1. Yay for your chapter, Abbi! It's awesome!

  2. Think I left your first comment on your NV entry, fab chapter Abbi, well done! You'll notice the different name on NV - Hope Springs - don't even ask why!

  3. Thanks, Jackie. Your chapter is the best, bar none. IMHO.

    LOL. Susan. THANK YOU for commenting on the chapter. So glad you liked it. I had a feeling about Hope . . . Like the name. :-)

  4. Wow your plate is full! The Desire and Medical mix is an interesting combination :). Congrats on your NV chapter Abbi! Your our first Passion Wall of Fame member! Your blog post will go up tonight :)

  5. Way to go Abbi. Loved, loved, loved your NV chapter!!! Seriously, I've been thinking about your last line ever since I read it. Sometimes a well written sentence leaves a vibration that just stays with you. You, my dear, really nailed it. Good luck with all of those subs!
