Now that the contract is in my hot little hands, and all fear of jinxing the deal has passed, I’m thrilled to announce my first sale. My novella “Where There’s Heat” will be published by The Wild Rose Press. Woo hoo!

I feel incredibly fortunate that my story found the right editor at the right time, and all the stars were properly aligned. Hubby and the boys cheered me on at every turn. And gave me flowers and Proseco to help me celebrate. Aren’t they the greatest?

I’m not sure if the title will remain, and have no idea of a release date. I do know that I can now say “my editor” and “my publisher”, which is thrilling beyond words. Soon I’ll be able to say “my new release”, and I may just burst with excitement.

Huge thanks and hugs to my critique partners, Alannah Lynne, Cara Carnes, Deb Noone, Michelle Libby, and Judi Phillips. I wouldn’t have achieved this dream without their support, commiseration and laughter. Writers are some of the nicest people you’ll ever meet!

    Still going OMG! So glad about this, Lu – you’ve worked so hard and your belief never wavered. I’m practicing the “I knew her when…” speech ;)

    Hehe, thank you Janet. I’m still going OMG too!! I keep expecting my editor (hehe) to write “what is your hero’s GMC?”. *shudder cringe*

    God – I hope they don’t do that! Like a test or something – to see if you’re a real writer. Now I’m panicking!

    But you’re a real writer, Lu – and you have a publishing contract to prove it. WOO HOO!!
