Really Big News

It seems like I’ve been posting a lot of announcements lately, but things have been going well, so I’m definitely not going to complain about it!

First off, I believe there’s still time to win a copy of my book at Avery’s blog plus I’m giving away another copy of Immortal Love and a $10 Amazon GC over at Avril’s blog so stop by and comment to be entered!

*deep breath*

Now for the news. I’ve been holding onto this for a week. Two months ago, I attended the Silken Sands Conference in Pensacola. The first evening of the conference, I met an editor I accidentally pitched my latest book to. I swear it was an accident. We were talking about some of the authors she works with, about how great their books are, and things just sort of snowballed into a pitch from there.

Last week, while I was sitting on my sofa watching Duck Dynasty, I got an email from Grace Bradley. She wanted my book. I sat there staring at my phone in disbelief for about five minutes. I sent off a reply. I have no idea if it was coherent or not because my hands were shaking so much. I put down the phone and screamed. I told my mom. I was so excited, I ran to my brother’s house (it’s only next door) and burst in, not caring that I was in my pjs, to share the news with them.

Primal Song, my rock star shapeshifting story, is going to be published with none other than Ellora’s Cave! Okay, I might have said, “I’m going to be published with Ellora’s friggin’ Cave! OMG, OMG!” My six month old nephew stared at me like I was crazy, but even he smiled. Eventually. After I scared him by squealing.

Ellora’s Cave is one of those publishing houses that I’ve always wanted to work with. I enjoy their books and they have some really fantastic authors. Oh, and did I mention they have their own conference with beautiful men? Oh yeah. Sorry Seattle, I’m going to skip you this year because I have to go to Canton, OH. And it isn’t just for the conference. I have three words for you: Football Hall of Fame (articles don’t count as words).

ZOMG. It’s been a week and I’m still a little freaked out about this. I mean…when I started this writing journey, I had hopes that things would go well, but now that it’s actually happening it doesn’t seem real.

So there it is. My latest news and I got to share it with y’all…fourth, or maybe fifth. *frown* I had to tell my sister, my aunt and uncles, my cousin…okay, so y’all are like tenth on the list, but I still thought about y’all! *big, smothering hugs*
