Roane Publishing has offered me a contract for Love's Sorrow, the first book in my Means of Mercy series!
Love's Sorrow is an historical romance and the first manuscript I ever attempted. Right after the new year I decided to brush the dust off the CD it was stored on and give it a peek.
Talk about an amateur attempt at telling a story! I laughed although the writing itself sicked me. I'll simply say that I now know exactly why Donald Maass had rejected the manuscript YEARS AGO due to it being "sloppy and Austin-esque".
At the time, I had thought he didn't know what he was talking about. At the time, I didn't know who Donald Maass IS in the agent world. Talk about a major face-palm.
After him-hauling for a bit, I sent Roane's acquisitions editor my pitch - and she simply said, "I WANT. Please and thank you."
The cover and official blurb are under way and will be shared as soon as possible, because here's the biggest news ...
It's set to release April 21st!
Yes, April 21st - of THIS YEAR! Needless to say, I'll be in the editing cave every spare second my little yummies allow.
If you're interested in sharing in the cover reveal which will take place on Monday, March 24th, please fill out the following information. I would love to have you join in my dork dancing celebration!!
