Can I get a SQUEEEEEEE?!?!?!

I am pleased, thrilled, utterly apoplectic to announce that my superstar agent Lauren Abramo just sold my superstar Regency-set gothic TOUCHED to Kensington in a two-book deal. Yayayay!!!

It will be arriving at a bookstore near you in the next 18 months. More details to come (including “call story”…)


Special thanks to my uber-massive support group: the Mavens Darcy, Lacey, Carrie, and Jackie, Kel & Manda, Janice, PCubed: Jean, June, Elissa, Cheryl, and Linda, all my TARA sisters, Cheryl, Julie and Virginia for never being too busy to answer my questions, and of course Karen and Diana, whose (utterly perfect) initial reaction was, “I told you so!”

    Yay! Congratulations, Erica! And hurry up with those details–who’s your editor, and is the title going to change, and when can we buy it in the bookstore?

    Even though I’m not mentioned by name, I trust you know I’m a firm and unwavering member of the U-MSG. Glad the vibes I’ve been sending finally worked!

    Can I get a SQUEEEEEEE?!?!?!
