Happy New Year – 2009

Hi everyone,

Hope everyone has had a great holiday season and that 2009 will be a great year for all of you readers and writers alike.

Tomorrow I’ll have a new author guest. Come back and see who and what great reading you can include in your list of things to read for 2009.

Also, later this month, watch for release information for my Christian fiction novella, Rebekah Redeemed.

Book Contract in the Mail

I’m doing a happy dance today! The publisher who I sent my Christian fiction novella, Rebekah Redeemed, sent me an email today saying that he really like the book and is sending a contract. It will be on the shelves Spring 2009. I almost have whiplash it’s coming together so quickly.

This is the first book of a series called Touched by the Saviour.

Reading and Writing

I’m just finishing reading James Patterson’s book The Jester. It is a historical fiction novel about a man who joins the Crusades to gain his family’s freedom. Nothing turns out the way he thought it would and when he returns home things are not how he left them. He becomes a jester so he has access to places a commoner or peasant would ordinarily never obtain. As usuall, Patterson has many twists and turns in the plot.

I sent the manuscript for my Christian fiction novella to the publisher last night. Now back to the revisions on my novel Escape and ghostwriting projects.
