The Search Is Over....

Arbor University finally has a publisher!!!

Received this last night:

"Your manuscript does need work, but I see the potential in the story. I'm
attaching a contract and cover questionnaire to this email. Your estimated
release will be October 2011. We'll go with version #3 since it fits better into
the next one."

They also wanted to see the first two books, so I sent them off, and should hear back by next week. I'm really excited, because Caitlyn (book #5) has been bugging me to read and fix her story (I actually reread it a week or so ago), and now I think I know how to 'speed' hers up; to insert some of her details into book #4. So now I'll have to reread and fix Gretchen's story (book #4) before sending it.

Here's the blurb to Keri's story in Forbidden Love:

Meet Keri Patterson, a sophomore at Arbor University, pursuing an Auto Technology career in the middle 1980s. The college is located in the fictional town of Arbordale, Indiana, and Keri’s dream is to one day be a part of an Indy car racing team. Along the way, she meets and falls for an older man, Kyle Sampson, who happens to be going through a divorce. With the innocence of her first love, Keri tries to balance her ambition to be the first female member of a racing pit crew and her awakening femininity. Will Keri and Kyle’s romance survive the hairpin twists and turns, or is disaster looming?

Kyle is not without problems of his own. He wasn’t expecting to meet the girl of his dreams so quickly, before the ink is even dry on the divorce petition. Trying to keep the two facets of his life separate, he discovers there is a fine line between love and hate, as well as deception and protection. But life doesn’t always get wrapped up in neat packages. Sometimes it blows up in your face.

I also had a reader contact me the other day for Love Is Sober. I have one print copy left, and since the used book sale will be happening at the Farmer's Market this Saturday, I'm setting up my booth. I'll also premier the G version of Kenzie's Appetite For Desire, arriving in September, and a good friend will be joining me to promote HIS first fantasy book. It won the Writer's Digest Short Story award last year, and has been uploaded to Kindle.

I'll be back tomorrow with the Friday Flashback, and just to let you know, the 'Aunt Molly's Summer School Reading Program' has been going well this week. I hope it continues!
