Great news

After eight + years of writing, rewriting, editing, and attending conferences, I had an LDS romance accepted for publication by Cedar Fort, Inc. I signed and mailed back the contract yesterday and am totally thrilled.

I don't have even a tentative a publication date yet, but hope to within the next couple of weeks. I'm guessing probably spring or summer next year--though of course, it could always be later depending on what they already have slotted. And of course, the title is being reconsidered, so I'll be submitting other options, marketing ideas, etc, etc, in the next week.

My next book has made it through weekly critique meetings with my groups, and is about to undergo more edits before I send it to full manuscript critiques, more edits, and eventually to my publisher (I just love saying that, MY publisher). I'll post again when I have something more to say.
