Another reason to celebrate...
Today, I have another reason to celebrate. In addition to the novella, Christmas Service, I've contracted with Barbour to write an historical romance for a new trade-length line they wish to start.
A Bride's Portrait of Dodge City, Kansas is scheduled to release in September of 2011. Eleven months from now. I've already turned in a cover art sheet (or several) and have a synopsis in place. Now to get it written! The goal is to have the first draft finished by Dec. 1st and the ms sent to my crit partners by Dec. 16th. Then it's on to Stars in Her Eyes, book three in my Colorado Light series for Heartsong.
I'm thrilled to death, and so excited about everything that's happening. Thank you again to Becky Germany for this opportunity, and thank you to JoAnne Simmons, who has been gracious to extend the deadline on Stars in Her Eyes to give me time to write the novella and A Bride's Portrait of Dodge City, Kansas.
Thank you also to my husband and son who are picking up the slack and giving me lots of time to write. You are the BEST!
Oh, and a huge thank you to my crit partners who have been so very busy. Since returning from the ACFW Conference, they've tackled a proposal and are currently critting Light To My Path. To Georgiana and Katie, You Girls Rock!!!!
