  1. Carly, are you at all open to a murder mystery/romance with Christian inspiration and family dysfunction in the subplots (my characters have a lot going on)? I suspect it will need to be published by a company that includes inspirational novels.

    Thanks for your always helpful posts (and your e-book which is like a writer’s bible).

    Blessings ~ Wendy ❀

  2. Carly,
    Are you accepting NA?
    Mines a NA WF which I would best describe as:
    Modern day Melbourne gal with issues that could have seen her as a character in “Girl Interrupted” meets a cross between “The Girl Left Behind” and “Doctor Zhivago”
