I have been sitting on this news for too long, my friends. And by too long, I mean approximately a week. But it was the longest week of my life.
I am so thrilled to be working with Berkley (Penguin) on CAGED IN WINTER, and its sequel (Current title: BOOK 2. I’m so original). I can’t wait to share Cade and Winter and their story with you!
This has been such a fast journey that so much of it honestly hasn’t even sunk in yet. I mean, in June, I was like, oh, hey…I think I’ll write a book. And then:
AGENTS! OFFERS! CONTRACTS! PUBLICATION!
I got the confirmation e-mail from Mandy that the deal had been finalized yesterday as I was making dinner.
And then I became a vibrating mess of excitement. It’s a wonder my children got fed, to be perfectly honest.
To celebrate, I plan to stuff my face with cupcakes and maybe a cocktail (and then let Jillian Michaels kick my ass) on Sunday with some very dear friends. Because what’s better than cupcakes and cocktails? Except, maybe…well, you know. *wink wink nudge nudge*
And I promise, I’ll be back to doing the Make Mondays Suck Less Giveaways just as soon as NaNo is done. I’ve set a high goal again (70k), so I’ve been basically doing nothing but writing and/or plotting and/or planning for the last three weeks.
And, and…I’m also going to be doing a cover reveal for SEASON OF SECOND CHANCES very, very soon, so stay posted for that!
