My news

Dear friends,

As of this morning, 10:57am EST, Butterfly Swords, has been sold to Harlequin Mills & Boon.

I’m at RWA national conference, among friends, among many of the people who helped me get here. This couldn’t have happened at any better time. Many, many more stories later.

Kudos to Lisa & Dara who may have noticed that I also quoted The Pursuit of Happyness when I signed with my agent. Last Friday was the day I first received the offer. 🙂

This is a dream come true. I’m happy.

    Keep us updated! I’m sure you will!

    SQUEEE! I am so happy for you, Jeannie Lin! This will be my first ever Harlequin to read. LOL. I’m sorry I didn’t see this before now. I’ve been on vacation, but what a happy note to return to! I’m off to look at how you did your website, but I am SO happy for you!
