I lit my fire for the first time of the year this morning and boy am I glad I did. It was sure chilly in the house when I got up! No frost outside that I can see though, so maybe I should just 'harden up'. But I did it for the kids :), I wouldn't want them catching a cold now, would I?
As for the book? Well first things first; it has a new name...Debutantes Don't Date. And it now also has a release date which is April 30th, 2014. If you have been following me on Facebook, you will of course already know this. What you won't know, however is that yesterday I received the cover of my book. Well, not the actual cover of the book since it is an e-book after all, but the virtual cover of my book. And it is awesome! Unfortunately for you, I can't show it to you yet. ;) You will have to wait until my publisher 'releases' it to the world. Hopefully this will be soon because I can hardly wait to share it. Even my dear husband has said it looks like and I quote, 'a proper book'. I'm not exactly sure what he was expecting...
Last week while I was talking to my editor, she offered me another contract. This time for another three books! I never in my wildest dreams imagined this. I would have thought that any new contract would be offered after the first book was released to see how well it sold. But since I am new to all of this, maybe this is normal procedure; I'm not sure, but it doesn't take away from the fact that I am over the moon. I have been flying high all week!
To top things off, this morning I found out that there are quite a few New Zealand authors that are taking the world by storm.
Vanessa Barneveld is a Golden Heart Finalist and the following authors are RITA finalists, Anne Gracie, Frances Housden, Anna Campbell, Nalini Singh and Leah Ashton. Congratulations to all of these fantastic, talented women. I encourage all of you to check out their books.
I am an author and this is my story.
