Yay! This is ME. A very happy little kitten with her 3rd Contract. 🙂
My third baby book WITNESS PURSUIT, a mystery/suspense romance just got a contract. Woo-hoo. The release has been set for January 6th 2014. Huge thanks go to Renee Rocco and Penny Barber at Lyrical Press NY for saying “yes.” I’m beyond excited.
Wow. It’s a dream to have one book release, and two more contracted. My thanks go to all of you too, for joining me on this journey, and to continue the celebrations I have a wonderful offer for you. More than anything, I’ve learnt how important it is to have a second set of eyes go over those first few pages of one’s manuscript. It can make all the difference, because as writers we read our work a thousand times and we know our story inside-out. Which means we occasionally miss something which becomes glaringly obvious once pointed out by another. Hate that, but also love and appreciate it.
So, to my offer–everyone who leaves a comment asking FOR A CRITIQUE will have their name put into a draw. What do you win? Yours truly shall be your second set of eyes to go over the first four pages (or 1500 words thereabouts) of your novel. That’s the first four pages. Not four pages from the middle of the book, but the first four pages. Okay, so if you’ve been catching my blogs, you’ll know my skills are in the editing department, which means it will be a fabulous critique. You’ll love it.
I’ve brought this offer to the table twice lately, and Amy Kennedy and Kozo Hattori were the winners and redeemed their prize. I loved getting to know them and their wonderful work. So don’t be shy, if you want to enter, make sure you do.
I’ll pick a winner using random.org and post the name next week on my blog, so keep your eyes open for who that is. (Particularly the winner, because you’ll need to get in contact with me via email.)
In other news, PROTECTOR’s had a wonderful first week, and it’s been a whirlwind of excitement as I’ve visited others’ blogs and chatted or had a guest spot.
Okay, I’m off to work on edits and my next manuscript. Yep, a writer’s work is never done. *smiling*
Take care and stay safe.
