Dreams Come True!!!


My hands are shaking as I type this because

I SOLD MY FIRST BOOK!!!!!!!!!!

I just got the email from Ellora's Cave that they want to buy The Bonds That Tie Us. It's been a long wait and I think I'm still in shock. Plus I found out at the office and couldn't really scream. But mentally I'm doing one major happy dance. :)

I haven't told my husband yet. Tonight on my way home I'm going to buy a bottle of champagne. I'm going to come in the door, put it on the counter and not say anything until he figures it out. I figure it will take about 5 seconds. :)

Congratulations!!! That is so awesome! I was at home when I got my big call, and I was so stunned all I could say was "Holy Guacamole!"

I don't ever say that. That's a stupid thing to say. So be glad you were in the office and not free to blurt :)

Happy celebrating!

Thank you so much everyone! My husband was so excited and I was right, it only took him about 5 second to figure it out. :)

Now I need to keep writing!

Thank you again, everyone! I'm a little calmer today hehe. Now it's a matter of waiting for the contract and then getting down to business. I'm really excited about starting the whole process. :)

I can't wait to see everyone in Toronto tomorrow. :)
