After what feels like a thousand rejections and several novels later, it's finally happened! Someone read one of my novels and connected with the characters, with the story! Charissa Weaks, an editor at City Owl Press, read the novel and offered me a three book contract for the series. To say I'm walking on air would be a serious understatement. This has been my dream since I was in elementary school, since my mom took me to the public library to check out huge stacks of books. The road here wasn't easy--there were definitely times when I wanted to quit, when I felt I wasn't good enough, but my wonderful husband kept encouraging me to persevere. Now I'm so glad I did. I can't wait for y'all to meet Amalie and Julian. They are my favorite characters I've ever written...although I'm working on Book 2 and I love those characters as well, hee hee.
I'm so thankful for God answering my prayers, for each and every person who has made this moment possible. I've got a thank you list a mile long and can't wait to write it for my book's acknowledgements page. If you're out there and chasing your dream, keep going, keep dreaming! You can do this!
