Toto, I don't think we're in Kansas anymore!

So WOW! The whirlwind continues. Book deal, Christmas, New Year, my birthday--but now it’s become a cyclone. I got an email from my seriously cool editor, Melissa, today. She’s planning a September release for Personal Demons. Which, in her words, “means great things about the excitement in-house, but it also means that you and I have some hectic times ahead of us.”

This is very exciting and a little scary. They said “Fall 2010” when they bid at auction and I was thinking December—maybe… I never dreamed SEPTEMBER. I’m now very thankful that I have the first draft of Original Sin (book 2) done, because I’m kind of off to the races, it seems. Release of book 2 is scheduled for July 2011 and book three May 2012.

I’ve actually not come back to the real world yet. I’m being a total slouch and am still on a celebratory vacation (since 12/21, the day of the auction). I have a feeling I might come crashing back to reality when I get home.

But it’s been a wild ride. I’m holding on with both hands and laughing my a$$ off. (Part of my vacation has been riding real roller coasters. o_O)

How’s your 2010 so far? Any good holiday stories? New Years Eve parties? Lampshades?


  1. YESSSSS!! See, an awesome roller coaster of a 2010 already! You rock, woman. I'm so excited for you!

  5. Tricia--
    I'm trying!

    My head is spinning!

    I've been sitting on my complete first draft of OS since Thanksgiving. I want to see my ed notes from Melissa on PD so I know if anything major's going to change that might affect OS before sending it for reads. You're first on my list!
