Ta-Daaaa! A Brand New Blog! Oooh, It's Shiny...

Hi there, and welcome to my brand-spankin’-new blog! *throws confetti* 

For those of you who don’t know, I write romances.  I love reading them, dreaming them up, and making them come into being (no, not THAT way; I’m talking about writing here).  Wonder of wonders, I’ve recently found some uber-fab people at Samhain Publishing who feel the same way I do when it comes to romance.   Just yesterday I signed my second contract with Samhain for a cyberpunk novella by the name of ZERO FACTOR to be released as an ebook in August, and part of a trade-paperback cyberpunk anthology released some time in 2012 (as soon as I get firm dates, you can bet your bippy I’ll scream them from the rooftops).

But romantic fiction is not the only genre I’m interested in.  Far from it.  As I’ve journeyed through the (seriously convoluted) process of getting published, I’ve met some extraordinary writers and people in the publishing business from all genres whom I never would have met otherwise.  It pretty much goes without saying that while I love the romance genre, I am IN love with all writers who believe in the stories hammering about in their heads.  To believe so much in those stories, and in one’s ability to share them with the world, is an awe-inspiring thing.  I’m so thankful I’ve managed to stumble into a world filled with such incredibly brave and talented people.

Have you ever had an idea for a story that just wouldn’t leave you alone, or a daydream that kept you up at night?  Beware – you might be a writer in the making.
