Continuing the Countdown...

Twenty-five days and counting till the release of RESCUE ME!

Today I was going to talk about how I met my amazing agent. However, my plans were interrupted by a wonderful event and I got sidetracked. I was sitting in my office writing when the Fed Ex truck passed by my house. And of course, I got excited. Sure it often passes by and doesn't stop, but that never keeps me from thinking it might just stop and drop off something wonderful...and it did!

RESCUE ME hot off the press. My very first copies! They're beautiful. And I did exactly what I knew I would do...I cried. Yep, I'm a crybaby. Definitely tears of joy though. I just never thought this day would happen.

I called my husband to share the joy. Then, I sent my editor and agent a thank you note. Without them, none of this would have been possible. And then, I signed one with a personal note and mailed it to my mom. She doesn't know it's coming and I hope it makes her smile.

Also I went to a book signing for my friend Jennifer Echols, an absolutely fabulous author. Her new book, GOING TOO FAR, a YA romance, looks fantastic. I can't wait to read it!

Tomorrow I'll check in and talk about how I met my wonderful agent.

The best part of it (besides the published book and the book itself) is that they were tears of joy.

Big hug.

You're right, Carla. I've shed plenty of those other kind, but these were definite tears of joy.

Big hug back!
