Exciting News!!

"Never, never, never, never give up." ~Winston Churchill

I've been sitting on this news for a few days, until it was official...

Samhain offered me a contract for Summer's Song!!!

Yippee...

This poor story has been around, in various stages, since early this century. It's been through a number of beta readers (and you know who you are...thank you), publishing houses and agents. All resulted in the eventual Rejection.

When I submitted it to Samhain last year, my editor sent it back with major revision suggestions. I let it sit for a while. Then a couple of months ago, I tackled it. And finally, finally, it's going to have a home...probably an ebook release in the fall of 2009, which means 2 print books (this one and One Night in Napa) coming out in 2010. Exciting!!

YAY! Finally. I remember "Summer" when it was an older woman, younger man story from years ago that you stripped. It (and YOU) has been through a lot to get here.

Congrats!
