And we're off...

Happy New Year, everyone!

I know it took me a while to get back to bloggling this year, but between entertaining house guests, traveling back to the big city and starting a new job, time was scarce. Even now, I was supposed to be in school... we'll the weather's bad and I'm sick, so I think I might be taking this weekend off.

Enough about that. Let me let you in on the BIG news! I got a contract offering from Melange Books! No, I didn't sign the contract yet, I didn't receive it, but hopefully, this time next week, I'll be a contracted author. I can't believe that my one big wish is coming true.

If you're wondering about Melange - it's that one nice place which has awesome Mysti Parker in it.

In other news, my job is eating a big part of my time, unfortunately, so I might blog a little less for a while (especially since I start exam session in two weeks). This also holds back my editing.

For people wondering, the fact that Hunters is getting published will not tether my editing of Saving Grace - that baby's still going through the queues. I will be assigned an editor for Hunters in about July, so, until then, I'm looking for people who would be interested in a full MS crit (hint, hint).

I hope I'll get to blog more over this month, but they might stick to shorts or (maybe) book reviews, since I got a kindle for Christmas and can read a lot more now :D

I'll keep everyone posted.

  2. This is such wonderful news, Steph! I can't wait for "Hunters" to be published :).

    I'm happy to volunteer for a full MS crit, if you think I'd be useful?
