  1. Very excited about this. I’ve done some pitches and rapid response events for Medical Romance before and while none of them has gone all the way (yet ;-)), I’ve always been happy with the feedback I’ve received.

  2. Amy, thanks for letting us know. I participated in the Medical FastTrack in 2010 – I only heard about it a couple of weeks before the closing date, so I almost didn’t do it. But I’m so glad that I did – I got a really kind and helpful reply from the eds and after much guidance and revision, that manuscript became my first book. So if anyone out there is unsure about whether to give this new rapid-response a try – I’d say go for it!

    Good Luck Jill, and to everyone else who enters!

  3. Amy, I am thrilled to learn that the editors are promoting the Medical series this way. I love both reading and writing Meds – there is so much more to the books, in my opinion, than just a romance. We’ve been lucky enough to add some fabulous new writers to our group and I hope we can add a couple more to keep up with the demand for this series! Thanks for spreading the word.

    1. Yes, the medical line is really the best kept secret of Harlequin romance, isn’t it Jennifer? We’ve had some stunning debuts lately but there’s always room for more in our family!
