I've Got News, and It's Pretty Sweet


If I was a GIF-savvy person, this post would explode with them. I’m not, however, so I’m just going to squeal in plain ol’ type.

Last week, I got to share some exciting news, and now I’m going to post it here.


Ready?


*squirms*
 

I’ve signed with Spencer Hill Press to publish my debut YA paranormal, LEAD ME BACK HOME.

Here’s the short version of how it came to pass.

I queried during Spencer Hill Press’s open submissions window in December. They requested the full manuscript shortly after.

Then waiting.

A nudge, a reply, and more waiting, until I received an email from Kate Kaynak that contained the following words:

OFFER OF PUBLICATION.

There was lots of flailing. Deep breaths. A yes. And here we are.

I’ll post updates—and maybe a cooler version of this story—as we go along. For now, I’m still letting it sink in that next year I’ll be holding my book in my hands.
