2008 starts with a bang

*holds microphone* *picture goofy rather surprised smile*

I... uh... Just sent back my first contract of 2008.

I sold HIS MASTER PLAN, to Whiskey Creek Press. It's a contemporary romance, one that I've tried to find a home for, for a very long time. And it's a huge relief for me.

Moral: When you have a good story, don't let the first R slow you down. This one was R'd by a couple, including Harlequin. I was afraid it wouldn't "quite" fit, but I have to try.

This is the basic blurb but it'll probably change:

Elizabeth Whitten has a few problems with men. She has learned from experience they are untrustworthy and unable to commit to just one woman. Her father was a prime example. Her just dumped boyfriend was another. She refuses to be taken for a ride any longer. Being alone is better than being used and cheated on.

When Dan Masters returns to Somerset, the memories of his flirtatious innuendoes at their first meeting and the interruption of his wife have already labeled him in Elizabeth's book. But Dan isn't quite ready to let her slip passed his radar. Life has taken a downhill turn for Dan, and when the last thing he was looking for winds up being the best thing he's ever found, he goes after Elizabeth with the tenacious personality that marked his career and makes him the man he is.

So there you have it. 2008. A whole new year of anxiety. 003.gif

LOL!!! I DIDN'T tag you.
Hey!!! Congratulations on the sale fellow WCP author. I'm so thrilled this got picked up.
And you're right. Don't let the first R get you down or make you lose confidence in the book.
Good for you.
