Great News!


Hi, folks!
How are you all doing? I realize it’s been a while. November was a crazy month; I lost Nano, sadly. I started with 15,000 words in a couple of days, and I was all fired up. I was the one who convinced everyone to do it, and I gloated. I was the one who, in October, kept talking about Nano.
Well, you can’t have it all, right? I had a few setbacks that completely threw me off.

But I have good news to share—at least about the good things that happened. I sold my sexy contemporary novella, Heating Up Hawaii, to Breathless Press! I’m really excited, as I’ve always read a lot of authors from BP and absolutely love their covers.

I’m so happy that my feisty PR heroine Penny and the hot, mysterious French-Italian hero Luc have found a home. I don’t have a release date yet, but I’ll keep you posted.

I got my first royalty check, and also a very nice note from the founder of Entangled, Liz Pelletier. It’s amazing to know that A Vengeful Affair is still selling strong and that people are adding it to their Goodreads Want to Read list and leaving reviews. The positive feedback has been really mind blowing. 

I have one book under consideration at Entangled at the moment, and I am working on a new proposal. I never thought I’d say this, but in a way, between published and contracted and WIPs, I have four books altogether. Kind of awesome—especially as this time last year, all I had was a dream.

 Now please let me know what you’ve been up to… ;)
Until later,
Carmen :)

  4. Oh, don't worry about NaNo, at least you started a new WIP. There's a new 100k words in 100k days on FB and I'm going to use it to complete my (four!) unfinished WIPs.

    Congratulations on your new acceptance.
