Well, since I signed the contract yesterday, I can officially announce it here: my full-length contemporary romance novel, Beacon of Love (my "lighthouse story" as I've been calling it) will be published with Lyrical Press in 2013!! This contract was actually the result of an online pitch session last month over at Savvy Authors - so a big thank-you to them, as well as the acquiring editor!
Lyrical is a small press but they've been around for a few years and appear to have solid sales in their romance genres - and so far I'm pleased with the correspondence from the publisher especially regarding contract language and some changes/adjustments that I requested. Covers are pretty, too - check out their website. Of course, I'm always a little nervous signing with a new publisher, but I did some research on them & talked to a couple of their current authors, and bottom line: I think this will be a good place for Beacon of Love.
I just wish I didn't have to wait so long!!
