WooHoo! Exciting News!

I'm doing back flips and cartwheels. Yesterday I sold another back to back romantic suspense trilogy to Ballantine! Tentative release dates are July, August and September 2010.

I can't tell you how thrilled I am to continue my Last Chance Rescue series with three more books. Two LCR operatives introduced in the first trilogy will have their own stories. The third operative is just now introducing herself to me. That's one of the things I love most about writing. I get to meet these amazing people in my mind and they let me get acquainted with them a little at a time.

Galleys for RETURN TO ME will be arriving around December 22 and line and copy edits of RUN TO ME in early 2009. And in between that, I'm continuing to work on my new series.

I'm a little behind but I'm finally getting into the holiday spirit. Shopping is almost done, which I can barely believe since I'm the worst procrastinator on Christmas shopping. I think one of the reasons I'm so far ahead is because I made the decision that most of the gifts I'll give this year will be books. My small contribution to support the publishing industry. And since I love hanging out in bookstores, shopping has been a true pleasure.

There is one gift I didn't buy at a bookstore that I'm very excited about. I can't tell you what it is because my husband reads my blog and I don't want him to know what I got him. I usually have at least one gift like that each year. One that I'm so excited and anxious to give, I can barely wait for Christmas.

How about you? Do you have a gift you're excited about giving away this year? Go ahead and share. I won't tell!

CONGRATULATIONS!!! That is fantastic news. Let me know when I can preorder all of them!!!

I do have a present that I am really excited about giving. My sister has wanted white majorette boots for as long as I can remember and I got her a pair. Plus I got four pairs of brightly colored tassels - depending on the team she is marching for. The scary thing is that she will really wear them!

Majorette boots...how cute! I'll bet your sister will be thrilled with them and the tassels. You'll have to take a picture for us and show it at the next meeting.

Carla Swafford said...

You go, girl!!! Now tell us what you got planned to celebrate. :-)

Christy Reece said...

Thank you, Carla! Don't know what I would have done without you these last two years, dear friend.

I'm hoping we do something this weekend to celebrate. Me, being the very low key celebrator that I am, and my husband being even more low key, I anticipate a good early bird meal and then maybe a movie.

Life in the fast lane!
