Good News!

This time, I actually have a good reason for my complete lack of presence/updating on this blog.

Love Inspired Historical has contracted my next book.

So of course, there have been revisions, celebrating, some more revisions, and jubilation.

This time around, I don't really think my husband understood why I was still as excited/disbelieving as the first time (although, unlike the first time I didn't hyperventilate or have a near nervous breakdown...progress, I like to think). But the publishing industry is such a tight market, and there are so many fantastic writers out there, that one book contract doesn't guarantee a second. So, when in my earlier post I said I didn't think anything would be quite as exciting as that very first phone call, I'm thrilled to say I was wrong.

I don't have a lot of official details yet. But I can tell you the next book looks like it will be coming out early next year.

As soon as I have the okay to let you guys know specifics, be assured I'll be posting it up here.

So for those of you who have wanted Marcus to find his own Happily Ever After...

This is it!!!

Anonymous--Thank you so much. I hope the 2nd book is enjoyable for you as well =)

Naomi--Thank you as well...btw, that "first call" story I was telling you about is the one linked in this post. I should fully capture my ridiculousness ;o)

Thank you so much for the kind words! I'm glad you enjoyed The Blackmailed Bride, and I'm just as excited as you about the sequel! Marcus is going to have his hands full with this one! =)
