Sorry for the blog silence, I've been holed in my writing cave working on revisions for THE LOST SAINT (due in less than a week--ACK!) But I wanted to pop my head out of the cave in order to share some BIG NEWS (to me anyway--but hopefully, some of you will be excited, too) and of course thank everyone for helping out with my paranormal romance questions and award the $25 Amazon gift card I promised.
So gratitude first: THANK YOU, THANK YOU for all your help with PNR presentation! It was a packed house and all your insights helped me decide what to talk about. Everyone who contributed had wonderful things to say, but since there can only be one winner I used Random.org to select:
Stella (Ex Libris) as our winner.
(Stella: Email me at Readbree@gmail.com to claim your prize.)
Okay on to the BIG NEWS...
It's officially official: THE DARK DIVINE is officially going to have a THIRD BOOK!!!!
Yep, TDD is going to be a Trilogy!!!
Like I said, I've been holed up in my revisions cave, completely oblivious to the outside world, so when my agent called to tell me that Egmont wanted to buy 2 more books from me (yes, I said 2--more on that in a minute) I was kind of shocked--but elated. I am so happy that Grace and Daniel's story gets a third installment!! And believe me, some of you would not be happy with me if their adventures ended in THE LOST SAINT.
Also, not only did Egmont buy and Third TDD book, they bought a fourth book from me. However, this fourth book is "unspecified" at the moment. As in, it's NOT a fourth installment of TDD. But I do have plenty of ideas for what that unspecified book will be about--and I can't wait to dive into it.
The third TDD book will most likely come out a year after TLS (so in December 2011) and the all new book will probably debut a year after that (December 2012) but only time will tell for sure.
And to top it all off, I can't tell you how excited I am to continue working with Editor Greg (aka Jimmy Olsen) and the rest of the Egmont crew. They are the best!
Anyway, here's the official Publisher's Marketplace announcement that makes it feel all shiny and real:
Anyway, I'm off to SQUEE!!! a bit more and then get back to work on TLS.
Do any of you have some good news to share?
