I Did It!


After much sweat and blood and more than a few bruises from all the head banging against my desk, I’ve sold my very first novella. I’ve told all my friends, even hubby got caught up in the excitement and told his friends. Considering my novella is m/m erotica, this both shocked me and gave me a little proud moment.

*cough* His Soul To Take, will be out in May, if you want to pick that up. lol

But as I sit here waiting for the Editor’s edits to drop on my desk and all the goodies my friends have assured me will hit my inbox all too soon, I’m wondering what I should be doing next.

One friend is screaming promo and another says, only do as much as you feel comfortable with, the problem is, where do I start? Screaming my recent sale from the rooftops isn’t like me. Though I must admit, I felt like doing just that when the contract ended up on my lap.

The best thing I could come up with is blogging.

Yeah, I’m not so good at that. I never know what to say in these things. But anyway, here’s my little squeal. Yay, me! I made a sale. With any luck someone out there will love my book and forgive me for my lack of good promo skills. 😀
