Usually Mondays are filled with utter drudgery, but today was not that at all!
I went off and volunteered for a while at the kids’ school for their back to school barbecue and meet the teacher day. Every experience I’ve had with the moms at this school has been totally positive and today was no exception. The last school was a mixed bag, but this one, so far, has been awesome. Kids got their pictures taken, managed to stay clean until after that, met teachers, dropped off school supplies (and discovered I forgot things, sigh).
After that awesome part of the day was over, I got home to find a note from my agent to let her know when I returned and when she called, it was to tell me that my editor at Berkley had read and wanted to contract not only AS IS (Adrian Brown’s book and the last in the Brown sibs series), CAPTIVATED (the last Phantom Corps book) and another contemporary (which is great because I just got another idea while I was on vacation!).
So – Adrian’s book will be out in Fall of next year! Captivated Spring of ’12 and the as of yet untitled new contemporary will be out in the Fall of ’12 (add to that MESMERIZED (book two in Phantom Corps) in April, Three to Tango (menage/love triangle themed anthology) in May, Goddess With A Blade in June, Nathan Murphy’s book in August, and the first Bound By Magic book from Sensation out in November.
I gotta run and write now. Or maybe take a nap. But I’m so thrilled!
