    I have nearly finished my romantic novel “The Irishman’s Women,” and emailed Mills and d Boon about it. Apparently they are not accepting submissions at present. My book is 68000 words long and is largely set in an artificial Rainforest.
    One of the women is a witch who can fly on a giant bird. She is the ex lover of the Irishman and is jealous to the point of murder. Of course I can change the bird for a car at this stage.
    Could you let me know if there is any chance that you might be interested in a romance along
    these lines, please?
