Notice anything different? Like maybe my blog design has mutated and changed? Well, there's a good reason for that. And there are going to be some big time changes around here.
I have some news. Big news. Exciting news. Fabulous news. The contract has been signed. The deal has been announced.
***drum roll please***
I sold my middle grade novel, KING OF THE MUTANTS, to Month9Books! I know! I know! It's hard to believe myself. But I have picture proof.
Right about now, some of you may be wondering: what the heck are you going to do with your memoir and this blog?
I'm still working on getting my memoir out there. So I'm also planning on creating two separate web sites — one for adult concepts, and one for YA and MG. For the most part, I'm keeping this blog as is, although there may be a couple of risqué posts I'll be deleting or tweaking to keep everything PG. Hey, I've been connecting with all of you here for more than three years!
How does a romantic memoir tie in to mutant kids?
Oddly, it does. Like Maverick, the lead character in KING OF THE MUTANTS, I never had contact with my biological father until I was thirteen. It should come as no surprise that Maverick's dad is a real freak of nature, or that Maverick is more than disappointed when he uncovers his roots. Hmmm. Write what you know, right?
Yes, I've got lots of work ahead of me, but if there's anything I've
learned on this seven-year-long road to publication it's I can do it.
But right now it's time to celebrate!
Thank you all so much for being a part of this journey!
