Dancing a Double Jig

Posted Fri, 03/18/11

Just a short note to share a bit more happiness...

I received two more contracts in my e-mail box today, one each for The Twilight and Megan's Legacy.

Before the year is up, I should have eight books released, all of which are part of the Collective Obsessions Saga.

In related news, my publisher told me Quixotic Crossings (part two) will be coming out next month. Hopefully, the new book cover will be ready to show before too long.

And yes, I'm still pinching myself. I will never be blasť about receiving a publishing contract, whether it's for my first, eighth or fiftieth book. Each time it's exciting beyond words, and not to be taken for granted.

I'm never likely to forget the years of hard work that came before the contracts, and the amount of work still to follow. I do give myself credit for maintaining dogged persistence, but I also believe keeping a positive outlook - no matter how desperate or unhappy life may seem at times - is an important factor. I decided to cut most of the negative from my life a long time ago, whether in relation to circumstances or people. It was the only way for me.

I'm as happy as a clam at the moment, and who can blame me? I'm ready to dance a jig on top of the house...

It's a damn sight better better than pinching myself!
