Great News To Share!

I’m doing a huge happy dance this morning. I sold the book Bound To Protect to my editor. Kyle and Erin are in it as well from Road to Recovery. This is such a relief because every author after they sell their first book wonders if they will sell another one. My editor and I had a couple of things to work out, and we’re able to do that in the story. Now I’ve got to work on the revisions she sent me. Which should be interesting with the kids home for summer break. It shouldn’t take long as there’s not much unlike with Road to Recovery. I’ll keep everyone informed of then it’s set to release once I know more.

Here’s my unofficial unedited blurb for Bound To Protect.

Katie Thomas has been living a secret life for four years to keep safe− that is. All of that is about to come to a crashing halt when her ex shows up again. She’s scared and not sure what to do, until she moves next door to fellow doctor, Chad Davis. He’s the last person she wants to live next door to, but one sizzling night together has her yearning for more. The only thing that stands in her way is what he wants in and outside of the bedroom. It’s a threat to everything she’d ever believed.

When her past comes back to haunt her, can she trust Chad enough or will it be too late?

Chad Davis has had a thing for her since he took on the job to protect her four years ago. The only thing is, she doesn’t know about her having protection. He’s determined to help bring her ex down for his own personal reasons and then to get on with his life−finally. Except one night of her in his bed and he’s not ready to give her up, even though she insists she’s not what he needs or wants.

Can he help her unlock her hidden desires and show her that this is more than a fling for him?


There’s some major Snoopy Dancing going on in my house today. I sold Road to Recovery to Pink Petals. It’s the first book I’ve ever sold. It’s the book I sent to medical line at Harlequin, and they passed on it. So I sent it over to PP, and she loved it. The only thing was I had to go through it again, tighten up some areas and do a whole new plot When I first read the email I was like, holy crap, a new plot. I have to say, my editor found a great gem in there to use as the plot, opposed to what I had come up with.

The greatest thing ever happened at the same time as Shayla Black was teaching her story booking class. That class really helped me to see what chapters I had to change to do the new plot. I was able to go through it and get to work so much faster. Also, Editpalooza over at Savvy Authors helped me learn to go through it two more times before sending it back to my editor.

The email came last night at 12:34 am. I decided to check my mail one last time before I went to bed, and how I didn’t wake the kids screaming for my husband who was in the other room I’ll never know. I was certain I was seeing things, that it didn’t say they were offering me a contract. Poor husband had to all but smack me for me to believe it. I was shaking and totally freaking out; hell I’m still freaking out now.

I have to thank the best critique group my Twinkies they are the best! Also Delaney for going through the manuscript one last time for me. I don’t have any other details yet, but as soon as I do I’ll post them here. I’m also working on getting a website together.
