I just signed a publishing contract!

 
Exciting news! I just signed a publishing contract with Curiosity Quills Press for my New Adult novel The Charge!

I'll share more details soon, but I wanted to share the news and thank all of my followers and friends who have been so supportive and helpful. I never imagined that getting what you've always wanted could be so stressful! But I feel better now that it's all decided and the ink is on the paper.

The editors I've worked with at Curiosity Quills have been approachable and supportive and I am looking forward to seeing what they can do for me and my baby (novel).

And now....


Although unfortunately it's still sparkling cider for me and my unborn child. I celebrated by going out for cheeseburgers with my 2 year old son. And we shall now clink our tater tots...

  5. CONGRATULATIONS!!! I love that they've come up with a new genre (New Adult) and that you get to be part of it. Is Destruction considered New Adult? You're just awesomely ahead of your time:)

  6. Thank you all so much!!! Gwen- Yeah, I was really excited that The Charge will get to be marketed as New Adult, because that is really where it fits best. New Adult is for recent graduates of YA, 18-23ish, and falls somewhere in between YA and adult in voice and themes. It's funny, my Mom asked the same thing about Destruction. No, it's not New Adult. Destruction is more an adult/YA hybrid, which is definitely not a genre. :) I love to make things hard for myself.
