the big deal

I'm happy to announce that we're expecting!

That's right, guys.

We're expecting my paranormal romance,
BLUD,
to be published in 2012.


BLUD was purchased at auction this week by editor Jen Heddle of the Pocket division of Simon & Schuster in a 3-book deal.

Big thanks go to:

* My amazing agent, Kate McKean of Howard Morhaim Literary Agency.

* My new editor, Jen Heddle, for believing in me.

* My beta readers: Ericka, Charis, Janet, Carrie, Debbie, Kathy, and Austin.

* Everyone who follows this blog and chats with me on Twitter, for encouragement, support, and validation.

* My family, for putting up with me.

* My beloved husband, Dr. Krog, without whom there would be no BLUD.

BEST. VALENTINE'S DAY. EVAR.

Thanks, guys! I couldn't be more excited. Well, not unless it was also being made into a movie starring Johnathan Rhys Meyers.

But a girl's got to dream, right?

Hi, congratulations, I just came across your blog from a link and saw your news! You should come join us at the Apocalypsies group (YA authors debuting in 2012, not only books about the Apocalypse, that's just a play on the 2012 thing!). Only a few weeks ago I found out about my 3-book deal with St. Martin's, it's such a freaking rush, isn't it?! Here's a link to the Apocalypsies blog and google group, there's a link on there somewhere to email to join: http://groups.google.com/group/apocalypsies?hl=en and the blog: http://groups.google.com/group/apocalypsies?hl=en

anyway, super congrats!

Thanks again, guys!

Heather, I *really* want to join the Apocalypsies, but this was my adult paranormal romance. If my YA or MG sell in time, I'm totally over there! Thanks for the invite!

Finger crossed. Toes, too.
