One of the fun parts of writing *not* is reading contracts. It's amazing how convoluted the wording can get when lawyers get involved... But then there's the happy dance that a contract is in my grubby little paws awaiting my signature.
Finally, after many months of waiting, my contract for my Kensington novella has arrived! Keket's Curse was my first "official" sale as part of the Damned, Dangerous & Delicious anthology. Kensington Aphrodisia offered for the manuscript back in July of last year based on a two page proposal. The contract was just a little slow getting here! LOL
With the Kensington contract arrived my agent's contract. When the deal was first offered, I understood the agent was offering to represent me on a book to book basis. The contract is for two years! So I now officially have a literary agent!!
Today is a good day. However, I've spent most of the night on the phone with my friends, Megan Kerans and Myla Jackson talking about our contracts! Then my lil sis called so more time on the phone. Then I had to call my mother to tell her the contracts arrived... Now it's 10PM and the most writing I've done today has been this blog!
Oh, and lil sis is nuts. She told me she wanted to get a matched pair of puppies, littermates. She's going to name them Dolce and Gabbana. She said that way, she could claim she owned a pair. *cackle* With vet bills and critter food, a pair of the shoes might be cheaper!
I'm having Lasik surgery today. I'm terrified but I'm excited at the same time. I've worn glasses since third grade. For a long time I did wear contacts but when I started needing bifocals, contacts didn't work anymore. Although the doctor warned me I might still need reading glasses, it's going to be wonderful being able to see without glasses all the time.
I'll be chatting at the Wild Rose Press' Scarlet Rose chat on Monday night at 8:00PM EST. Along with me will be many of the authors from our new sexy anthology for the Scarlet Rose Line. The anthology is a series of short romantic sexy stories of women around the world! The other authors in the anthology are Delilah Devlin, Myla Jackson, Kimberly Kaye Terry, Eve Savage, Betty Hanawa, Brenna Zinn, Desiree Holt, Layla Chase, Megan Kerans and Allie Standifer.
I'm doing the Snoopy dance again! I signed a contract with Ellora's Cave for The Rememdiu! This story is the sequel to The Cost of Eternity! I have to work on the blurb and an excerpt but as soon as I have them, I'll post them on my website.
February turned out to be a fantastic month! Gaps In Your Soul, my EC Naughty Nuptials quickie, sold on 2/1; The Cost of Eternity released at EC on 2/7; and now, The Rememdiu sold on 2/28! In spite of having turned a year older in the same month, I think I lurves February!
Now, if March will behave. With t-storms, tornado watches/warnings and possible hail, March is blowing in like a lion!
