Super Tuesday

Soooo….Monday night I emailed my Carina editor and when she responded, she said she was so excited about ROAD SIGNS, the book I’d sent her in July. I shot back an email with many caps and question marks, only to hear that other readers had liked it, and she’d email Angela James to see what the official status was.

I didn’t sleep Monday night.

Tuesday morning before work–nothing. First break–nothing. I went to the restroom, came back and checked my email one more time–and there was the email I was looking for. “Congratulations!” I dashed out the door and called my husband, and Trish.  Apparently Malle Vallik liked it! Very cool!!! No details yet, but I’ll expect a revision letter…probably about when I leave for CA.

When I got home, my phone rang, and I looked to see Trish was calling. Okay, we “talk” online all the time, but phone calls, not often. So twice in one day–but then I knew. SHE SOLD THREE BOOKS TO HARLEQUIN!!!! WOOT!!!

Isn’t it cool we sold the same day????

      Thanks so so much, Stacy! I’m really happy with the timing, though I got the notice just as we were going through our school calendar. Eep! I’ll be busy! 🙂
