Announcement of Epic Proportions

I've only been sitting on this news for 24 hours. Twenty-four hours of knowing it was happening for sure, yet it feels like much, much longer. I'm in this weird place because I'm SO VERY HAPPY, but I'm still blown away. I still can't believe it happened to ME. The past year has already been so wonderfully incredible for me because of all you wonderful readers out there and your support. Because of my self published books and because of working with the amazing, Entangled Publishing.

And now this.

I've said it before and I'm sorry you have to hear it again, but I've been writing for so many years. Fighting and trying to dig my fingernails into the wall, so I could climb higher or at least stay where I was, without falling again. It's been a long fight. I've had more rejection than I feel comfortable sharing. LOL. But then I was lucky enough to self publish and get the support from all of you. Lucky enough to have some of you like my books. Lucky enough to also write for Entangled.

Now we're back to the, "and now this" again.

What is this, you might want to ask (or you're screaming at me through the computer to stop babbling and tell you already)?

This is something very cool. It's something I'm still afraid I will find out didn't really happen.

My incredible agent has sold a two book deal for me with Grand Central Publishing. It's for Facade and an as yet untitled second book (or third for the series, depending on how you look at it).

AHHHH! I'm so very excited. Excited doesn't even begin to cover it. I've cried. I've laughed. I am in awe that this is me and I'm lucky enough to have it all happen.

Now I know this opens up for a ton of questions. What does it mean for you? Well it for sure means a third book in The Games series, which wasn't a guarantee before. As far as Charade is concerned there are no changes. This will probably change the Facade release date and I don't know exactly when it will release. I can promise you that I'm working my butt off on it. That I'm almost done and Grand Central and I are both eager to get it to you as soon as we can. As soon as I know more information, I will be sure to share it with you.

In the meantime, I will go back to pinching myself to make sure I'm not dreaming. I feel like I'm floating right now. I can't wait to jump in and work with Grand Central. And I also need to say thank you. YOU GUYS helped make this happen for me. Your support and enthusiasm for me and the characters who I'm blessed enough to have share their stories with me.

  11. Wow! I can feel the excitement in your words! Congratulations, I am so happy for you! I almost feel as though I have travelled on this journey with you as I have read each of your books as you have put them out there, watching you go from strength to strength! I love the age we live in where an indie author can get themselves heard thru social media and reach the success that they (you) so deserve! Well done!
