It’s been quite a journey. Like all writers, I’ve undergone a huge learning curve: writing a novel is not like writing a short story, the form with which I’ve been most familiar. I’ve been blessed with wonderful teachers, my agent Sally Harding, in particular. I’ve been more than fortunate in finding a terrific Editor-in-Chief in Robert Runté and a wonderful publisher in Lorina Stephens. Because the book straddles paranormal romance and historical fantasy, I am thankful that both Robert and Lorina are not tied by strict genre guidelines.
I finished penning my Dedication and Afterword this morning. Artist Jeff Minkevics is either thinking about the cover, or he has started work on it. I am thrilled and happy to be taking my place alongside so many of my friends who have published novels or collections. And to all of you who have offered me your congratulations, thank you for filling my happiness to the brim.
