It’s nice to have one of these once in a while.
This week one of my dear writing buddies, Bria Quinlan, landed a dream agent. Her book, Secret Girlfriend, brought me back to my teenage years and made me laugh and cry like a schoolgirl.
Blog penpals Lisa and Laura Roecker announced their first sale of The Haunting of Pemberly Brown to Sourcebooks. I’ve been waiting for this day for a long time because I knew it was going to happen!
Edited to add: And more good news! Fellow Ruby Sister, Tamara Hogan, sold her debut novel Underbelly as part of a three book series to Deb Werksman of Sourcebooks. Underbelly is set to be released in 2011! There’s still time left for more good tidings. 🙂
I received approval for my first conference speaking opportunity on Monday and I received an offer for my historical short from Harlequin Undone on Tuesday! It’s a love story that’s mentioned briefly in Butterfly Swords and forms the basis for Ai Li’s honorable yet feisty character.
If you’ve browsed by on Excerpt Monday, you may remember that I posted the opening in first draft: Warrior Bride excerpt
The details are still being hammered out, but right now I’m glowing that this little story will see the light of day and that I have a second sale.
Good energy is in the air. Can you feel it?
