Be Careful What You Wish For...

...it just might come true.

We've all heard the old adage, but it hit home for me this week.

After years of writing and submitting and receiving rejections, I've sold to three publishers in the past year. Whoo Hoo! And then what happens, but I end up having my first three releases scheduled for October, November and December!! How cool is that?

Well, those of you who are more experienced writers probably know what happened next. I finished up my edits for my October release from Ellora's Cave , NOTHING TO FEAR, a couple weeks ago and have been happily working on my next story for eRedSage. But then at the beginning of this week I got edits for my November release from Samhain, THE RIDE OF HER LIFE. And so while I'm in the middle of those, what do I find in my inbox a couple days ago? You guessed it. My edits for my December release for Ellora's Cave's Seasons of Seduction IV, TASTE OF HONEY! Yikes!

So while I'm working like crazy at my computer, I keep reminding myself: I wanted this!

Forgive me if I'm not around much the next week or so...

You will rock through all of those edits! And I hope that one day I will have the same problem:)

Congrats and keep up the great work!

Very cool. Congratulations.

And yes, speaking as a former Dungeon Master, one should be very careful with wishes. ;)

Thanks, Amy.

Cara, I hope the edits rock. I'm doing my damnest. lol

Rob, we seem to make those wishes without any thought to them actually coming true, don't we? Hmmm, I think I see a story in there :)

Thanks, Amanda. I absolutely have new stories in the works. Now if I could just get these edits done...

Busy woman! Congrats, though, because there are few things better than a busy writer.
