This is a pretty big step for a technologically-challenged gal such as myself, starting a blog. I've resisted for some time now, even though lots of my writer friends have blogs to which I'm hopelessly addicted.
But Friday brought news that made me realize I had to disengage myself from the cabbage roses in the wallpaper ... big news!
I GOT THE CALL!
Yes, the wonderful call from a wonderful editor, telling me that -- gasp -- Harlequin Superromance wants to buy my book!
I was supposed to get The Call Thursday -- my editor (oh, how I love saying that! Please forgive me!) called me twice, only to catch me in a meeting with my phone's ringer not on. So when I realized that it was Harlequin on my caller ID, I screwed up my courage and I called her back the next morning.
My book, tenatively titled THE BABY WAIT, will hit the shelves April 2007 -- a scant few months from now. I am beginning to realize that everyone who told me to get a website and get a blog and get some ideas going was, ahem, right.
Thanks to a very dear friend of mine for helping me set this up -- I told you I was technologically challenged!
As far as what happens next on the road to publication, your guess is as good as mine. It should be an adventure -- one that I would not miss for anything!
