Getting Educated

The release of my first New York book, The Education of Madeline, on February 24th was more than just a blip on the radar. It was really the culmination of my education too.

You see, I have been published since 2004 with small print and e-pubs, an amazing experience that taught me how to be a better writer. Without my editor at Samhain, Sasha Knight, I would not be published with New York. I truly believe that y’all. She made me into a better writer and for that I will be eternally in her debt.

Last May when I signed with Kensington, it was like reaching the top of the mountain, breathless and sweaty with your muscles screaming. Then shouting “YES!!!!” at the top of your lungs and hearing it echo.

Then of course, I had to climb down the mountain. LOL. I had to learn everything I didn’t know about the business of publishing. My agent, Laura, and the funny, talented Kate Duffy, my editor at Kensington, gave me what I needed to step forward and be a writer as a career.

It’s not going to happen tomorrow, or even next month, but it will happen. I’m learning things every day about publishing, writing and the business of being a novelist. Each kernel of information is being tucked away, like I’m a chipmunk preparing for winter, and eventually I will feast. I promise. 🙂

If you like sexy cowboys, strong women, and lotsa hot, smokin’ sex, pick up a copy of The Education of Madeline. You won’t be disappointed. 😉

I’ll be signing copies at the Barnes & Noble at Tidewater Community College, 300 Monticello Ave. Level 2, Norfolk, VA 23510 on March 14 at 1 p.m. Hope to see you there!
