My book is getting Published!!!!!



I’ve signed with Sapphire Star Publishing to publish my Dark YA Paranormal Romance novel, THE SECOND SIGN!!! OMG. OMG. OMG.

I’m still OMG-ing.

Sapphire Star Publishing is a new small press publisher and they have been awesome and most importantly they loved, loved, loved my work!

I’m totally blown away and have yet to recover.

THE SECOND SIGN will be published in early 2013.

During the crazy week from offer to signing, I’ve been doing some soul searching. Is this what I want? Is this where I want to be?

It’s one thing being a writer in my own mind, it’s something entirely different being out there in the big bad world. A huge milestone. And one not to be taken lightly.

The journey has led me to a crossroads and I had to make a decision for me. And I feel deep in my bones that I made the right one.

So, out there I will be and I hope you'll join me. Without the support of the writing community—of you wonderful people out there—I wouldn’t have had the courage to make the next leap.

Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.

With that, I leave you with some inspiring words by Neil Gaiman.
