The Meet the Editors podcasts are now working on eharlequin again. The latest one is one Harlequin Intrigue. According to Randall Toye, next up in the series will be all the UK edited lines, starting with Modern/Presents.
I find the podcasts incredibly useful. It is really interesting to learn what the editors want and how they view series v single title. For example, Harlequin Intrigue is mystery for the series romance reader.
Anyway, it helped clarify my thinking on my latest one, and then I spoke with my editor's assistant and that helped even more. Powerful and poignant is preferable to simple solutions. My dd lost the arguement here. Now I just need to finish the wip.
