So Pepper and I got a rejection today on a manuscript we submitted to Kensington. We're not too bothered by it, actually, because we got a really nice personal letter instead of a form rejection, and she had nice things to say about our writing.

One of the reasons it got rejected, however, is because the couple in it is composed of a youngish theater professor and a 22 y/o student - who had him for one semester but doesn't when the book starts - and the editor said that teacher/student relationships have a creepy factor.

Which, frankly, Pepper and I don't get, lol. But hey, we could be wrong. So that means it's poll time!

Poll #1091716 Would you do your teacher or not?

Teacher/student (of legal age)relationships - sexy or creepy?

Sexy! Are you kidding? One man's creepy is another man's kink!

Creepy! Are you kidding? That's all about the abuse of power, man.
