It's a strange world.
Other than selling my romance novel https://www.amazon.com/dp/B075BJH2D2, the next strange thing to happen to me is having caught the interest of two publishers.
While one said yes, and the other is a maybe; a maybe is better than a no, a possibility is far better than either a generic refusal letter or being ignored.
I realize that the romance genre is heavily populated with writers, so I am not holding my breath on the second house.
I found the publisher who is interested while searching for houses with an interest in Jewish fiction.
I did write the story with a Jewish audience in mind, but this raises how do they publishers view the story?
I view it as a mystery romance set in Israel among other countries.
