This is really happening...

Wow.

I've been dreaming about this day for a long time, and I'm thrilled to say that I have acquired an agent and signed a contract with Harlequin Romantic Suspense!

I still can't believe it.

Edge of Trust will soon be in print!

I don't know if the title will stay, or when it will come out (late this year, or early next year most likely), but you can be sure I'll keep you all posted every step of the way!

I'm completely over the moon, and it's still sinking in.  I'm finally able to compose sentences instead of sputtering, but just barely.

I owe a huge debt of gratitude to my family and friends for their support.  I have the best beta readers ever, and I'm a member of some online writing communities who are a constant source of inspiration and encouragement.  Same goes for my local RWA chapter--North Texas RWA.  I leave every meeting fired up about writing, and they are a truly special group of people whom I admire and appreciate more than I can say.

So there you have it.

Some dreams really do come true.

    1. Thanks, Amara! The Forum really is an amazing place, isn't it? Someone should write a book... 'Everything I know about writing, I learned from The Forum.'
