Snoopy Dancing

Today I am Snoopy dancing. It’s not because tomorrow is my birthday either. It’s not because today is my hot Scottish friend Darrie’s birthday. It’s because Mary at Pink Petal Books offered me a contract for Shifting Winds! I am now an official author! Well, at least as soon as I sign the contract and send it to her. 😉

I suppose now, Declan and Althea (whose name will revert back to my original name choice of Elysia) will be my favorite characters because they were the ones to be accepted by a publisher first.  Actually, Lex and Alaric are still my fave characters, even though Alaric isn’t my character.  No other characters could ever take their place. However, Declan and Elysia are truly special. I knew it as I was writing them.

Now, I think I’m running out of words to convey my excitement. So I’ll just leave you a link to the post I have on Sunlight Sucks today. It’s called Vindicated and it’s about reading my email in bed and discovering I’d been offered a contract. So, you all head on over there to read that post and I’ll just kick back and do some more Snoopy dancing.

Happy Halloween everyone!

    Wow lex! I think "Vindication" is the exact word for how you feel. You have been telling us all along that YOU know you were meant to be published, and here you are!

    In the last few months/weeks, I have read your posts and your tweets and seen just how busy, how dedicated you are to writing. Not just any writing, but GOOD writing!

    You deserve this, and I gotta say, I did a little squee myself when I read your twitter this morning!
