A Two-Book Deal?? Best Valentines Day gift ever!

IMG_9940In time for Valentine’s Day 2015, I am thrilled to report that I FINALLY got a book deal for my novel!!

The official deal was reported a couple weeks ago, and I just got the chance to meet my editor Mercedes Fernandez at the SF Writer’s Conference last night. Thanks go out to my fantastic agent, Jenni Ferrari-Adler, and to Kensington Dafina

Happy Valentine’s day to all, and may everyone find their heart’s desires.
