So book 2 is in to my editor. Waiting to hear back from her. I hope she likes it as much as I do. As predicted it was a dark, gut wrenching book to write. That being said, I love it. I might even like it better than the first book and y’all know how much I loved that one.
I am officially preparing to go back on submission. This time with my fantasy romance Enemy Hearts. Everytime I come back to this book I love it more. That’s a good thing. Wish me luck.
We are creeping ever so slowly toward my release day. And in a little less than a month I’ll be going to the RT booklovers convention which is an awesome convention I’ve always wanted to go to. This time its in my own backyard so of course I have to go. I can’t wait. It will also be my first public appearance as a published author even though the book won’t be out until fall.
Guess that’s it. What’s up with you guys?
That’s right, the call I waited my entire life for came and I missed it, I was at work. That call came from Angela James at Carina Press who left me a very nice voice mail to tell me she was very sorry she missed me but she’d send me a follow up email. Even without any of the details, I squeed. Yes, I said squee. I’m not ashamed to admit it.
When the email came, I might have actually screamed a little. You see, the email told me that not only did they love Possession and wish to extend an offer on it, they wished to offer on the second book in the series as well. I was completely blown away. Obviously I accepted and I’m thrilled to be added to Carina’s fabulous roster of authors.
When chosing where to submit to, Carina topped the list not only because of their reputation, but I really felt Possession would be a good fit there. I also knew that being a digital publisher the production schedule would be much faster and they would be much more likely to end up wanting the full series. And I guess that’s true since they picked up the first two.
So I’ll keep you guys updated as I have information to share. In the meantime, I need to finish that second book. 🙂
I am happy to say that rewrites are done on Possession and it’s back out on submission. Doing one more read through and then I’ll send it back to the agent that requested the revise and resubmit. It feels good to be back out on submission but I dread it just the same. Rejections are part of the game, but that doesn’t mean I look forward to them. 🙂
On another note, it appears we’re going to get actual snow tonight. Can’t tell you how weird it is to be well into february and not have had a real snow yet. The boys are super excited. They’ve been waiting all winter for some real snow.
I figure they’ll have a snow day just because I have the day off and was looking forward to some alone time. That’s usually how it works out isn’t it? 🙂
