I'm bouncing all over the place...bounce....bounce...bounce...bounce!

Twilight Times has just sent me a contract for "Touch of Fate," a pranormal suspense novel. It will be released as an e-book (tentatively) this August and then probably do the paperback thing 7 or 8 months after that.

WEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Thanks everyone! I couldn't sleep last night I was so excited. My husband's throwing me a party today at 12:30...all are welcome! (It might help if you live anywhere near Kansas City, or more specifically, Olathe.)

Sorry I can't make your party -- I have scheduled a good long look at my writing for 12:30 and a lie-down and an aspirin at 12:35.

What's the difference between an author and a writer? I've always called myself a writer before. Now I feel more like an author, or maybe a novelist. Hmmmm...

Rest assured, I'm not done honing my skills. I expect everything I do to be better than what came before. I set the bar pretty high for myself.
