Timeline of my Books

I wrote Star Power in June, contracted it in July and it’s out in October. That’s astonishing to me. True, it’s only like 70 pages, but still. I started thinking about the length of time from writing to publication on my other books. Sometimes it was because I was waiting waiting waiting to hear. Sometimes it was a ton of revisions. But here’s what I remember:

Hot Shot: Started writing in 2000. Finalled in Golden Heart and requested by SIM in 2003. Finalled in Golden Heart and had revision call from an editor in 2004. Rejected in 2004. Got agent in 2006. Spent most of 2007 revising. Broke up with agent in 2007. Finalled in the Maggies in 2007. Sold to Samhain in 2007. Book released in 2008. Won Eppie in 2009.

Where There’s Smoke: Started writing in 2002. Finalled in first contest in 2002. Requested by SSE in 2003. My first set of requested revisions in 2003. Entered in Golden Heart in 2004. Sold in 2007, released in 2008.
