Got a note from Liza Dawson yesterday. Ballantine said Honeysuckle Dreams didn't work for them, NAL said it was too dark, St. Martin's said they didn't know how they'd sell it, and SourceBooks said it was too similar to a series they were already promoting. Avon and Mira like it so far, but haven't finished reading the whole manuscript. Kensington, Gallery (Pocket), Berkley, and Grand Central haven't started reading it yet.
Fiorella prefers not to think about the situation. If HD sells, it sells. If it doesn't, it doesn't.
