What a Deal!

I've been sitting on some news for nearly two weeks, waiting until things were more "official." My lovely agent Natalie Fischer posted this, so it looks like we're a go : ) Carina Press made an offer on Bad Girl! Yay!

Excited doesn't describe how I've been feeling for the past twelve days. I simply can't believe it at times. I know the real work has yet to begin (edits will be coming soon), and I'm sure I'll question my sanity for ever starting down this road. But for now, all I can say is WOW!

And a huge thanks to my crit partners Sharron and Jody. Because without them there would be no Bad Girl. Without them encouraging me and kicking my butt, I would have quit writing a long time ago. So thank you my friends! You are the best!

OK, back to the wip so I can show Natalie and Carina I'm more than a one hit wonder ;)

OMG, I'm so going to buy it! It will be my first Carina press book buying experience. I know that Angela James (formerly of Samhain) went over there, so I know the quality of writing from Carina authors is very good.

Congrats!!!!

Thanks, Leah. I'm flattered that I'd be your first Carina title. At least I can count on one sale ;)

Angela is Head Editorial Honcho over at Carina, which is one of the main reasons I wanted to go there. Lucky for me, Natalie thought the same thing : )

W&C, I'm thinking I can credit/blame you to a degree, depending on how things go, yes? ;)

Thanks, Meretta :) It has been worth it. Though I haven't had to do gobs of promo yet, so we'll see if *that* changes my tune :)
