PARADISE - SOLD


Well, this isn't the first time I've done things out of order and it probably won't be the last but I can finally call myself an author now that I've sold my first book. Yep, you heard it right, PARADISE, my time-travel historical romance (I like to think of it as Romancing the Stone meets Tombstone) has been picked up by WiDo publishing for their 2014 line-up.

Now, that doesn't mean I don't want an agent, cuz I do, but Jack and Katherine have been languishing for some time, wondering if anyone would ever get to hear their story and when WiDo offered...well, we decided to go for it :)




ps the pic is Tombstone, circa 1882.

    3. Ooh, I like that idea, maybe I'll come as one of my other characters, Arlen, the witch. She lived during the Regency period and they did have some fabulous dresses back then...

  5. Marcy!!! Do you remember when I told you - way back when - , that this would be the book? That you shouldn't give up on it because I loved it and still think about the ending, wondering where they're headed off to next? Yup. WHOOT!! I couldn't be more happy for you. *Snoopy dance*

  12. Oh, congratulations! That's fantastic! And I think it isn't uncommon these days to do a few books first, THEN get an agent, so long as you do due diligence selling the earlier ones.
