Two weeks ago, I shared with you the news about subbing my first paranormal novel, Wolf’s Soul: A Midnight Howl Novel. I heard back from the Red Rose Publishing’s acquisitions editor a few days ago. She told me that the contract is on its way to my inbox. She liked my writing and is looking forward to reading more of my stories. Needless to say, I was over the moon while reading her email.
I didn’t think I could do it considering all I’ve done for the past two years was write contemporary romance. Before I subbed Wolf’s Soul: A Midnight Howl Novel, doubt, apprehension, and fear hovered in the back of my mind. But believing in myself pushed me forward, resulting in wonderful news. Of course, I could have received a rejection letter, but the most important thing was that I believed in myself and didn’t let the negative emotions weigh me down.
Recently, I left a comment for Brenda Novak on how she made it big at http://overtheedgebookreviews.blogspot.com Her reply was great and used one of my favorite words—believe.
Publishing is tough tough business that I am sure a lot of people would rather not pursue . But if it is what you desire in the world, at least try. That is what I am doing right now. My hair is still black :) Who knows maybe when I start sporting grey hair and I am still where I am right now, I might quit, too. But right now, my blood warms at the thought of finishing another novel. I believe that I can still move up another rung of the publishing ladder.
I have a new book coming out from eXtasy Books. The Wicked Proposal. If you haven’t done so, sign-up to receive my once in a blue moon newsletter for a chance to win a copy of The Wicked Proposal.
By the way, you can now purchase Three Christmas Kisses at Barnes and Noble. Amazon.com also carries my other books.
I would love to hear from you. If you tried one of my books, please let me know what you think about it.
Thank you all for your wonderful support.
