Guess who sold....

Audio rights?! LOL. I had a very exciting phone call with my agent this week and we've sold audio rights for CHARADE, WHAT A BOY WANTS, WHAT A BOY NEEDS, MEASURING UP and FREEING CARTER to Audible! EEEEK!!! So exciting. I can't believe I will be able to listen to my books. It's pretty much the only way my mom reads anymore so I'm really excited for her to be able to listen to them too.

I still feel a bit of shock when I think about this year. At this time last year I was separating with my second agent. MEASURING UP and WHAT A BOY WANTS had both gone on submission to major US publishers and they all said no. I was depressed and wondering if I'd ever make it in this business. It's AMAZING what a year can bring! I thank God and my readers every day for making it possible! I've not only successfully self published multiple books, but I've also sold a three book adult series and MISPLACED, a YA collab I wrote with Jolene Perry to Entangled Publishing.

If I've learned anything from this it's that anything is possible. Your dreams are never too far out of reach.

Wow... I got all mushy there, didn't I? LOL.

That's all from me for now. More details coming soon and if you didn't see my good news from earlier today, scroll down :)
