I finally received my contract from Carina Press, the electronic arm of Harlequin. It’s long. I have some reading to do this afternoon, but I’m excited and eager to get it done, because once the contract’s signed, my editor, Melissa Johnson, and I can get started polishing the book for publication. I can hardly wait.
In the meantime, I thought I put down in writing a goal of mine and how I plan to achieve it. After reading the steps, I’m sure you’ll detect a pattern. Such is the life of an author. But I’m actually not just waiting, I’m busily writing the next book in the series. It’s a rare day when I don’t write.
