The News We've All Been Waiting For!

Okay, maybe not all of us have been waiting for this news. But I have.

Yesterday I signed a contract. It was an offer to publish my novel!

Woo Hoo!

Yes, it's true. Cedar Fort has offered to publish my manuscript entitled 'Still Here'.

It's inspirational fiction about a mom, her daughter, and a flood. Here's a summary in a sentence:

A dedicated single mom discovers the resilience of family, faith, and love when she returns with her rebellious daughter to the small town on the Virgin River that she fled as a teenager, at the same time that a massive flood hits the area.

Right now I'm caught up in getting it polished and off to the publisher, but I'm slowly starting to realize the many ways that my life is going to change. It's all exciting and good. And trust me, there will be more to come on this subject!

I am so excited for you and for your book!!! My son is Taylor. He plays drums for Dan. (in case you're wondering how I happened upon your blogspot)
I too am a budding author. I still have so many questions about the editing and publishing process. Could we talk???
