Odds and Ends

It’s been an eon since I’ve done any blogging. I am SO sorry. I’ve actually been writing a lot (who am I?), and, y’all, I finished something.

That’s right, a few days after my 2020 year in review post, I completed a full-length contemporary romance (!!!). Then I spent January revising it before querying agents. ICYMI, I ended up signing with the incredible Sarah Younger at Nancy Yost Literary Agency.

Now, publishing moves with the same approximate speed of a cold turtle, so it may be months before I have news–if I ever even have good news. But when I was gathering manuscripts together for Sarah to take a look at it, it was a lot. I just have so many fragments of stories and made-up couples and ideas, and for the first time in a long time, I feel…hopeful about my writing. My fingers and toes are crossed that other people will feel the same way and I can share them with you at some point.

In more tangible news, all three of the Easy Part books are on sale for 99 cents! As a reminder, these are my Obama-era political romances and they feel very optimistic–maybe too optimistic–about government. But I love these fictional people and their fictional struggles toward love, and I’m delighted that you can get them at a deeply discounted price if you are so inclined.

I have no idea how long the sale will last, so if you want these books for cheap, act fast! They do not need to be read in order as the series is pretty loosely connected.
