As I write this, it’s the end of July and many are off to Orlando.
Congrats go to Leslie Marshman who sold a short story to True Romance for the October issue that’s focusing on Breast Cancer Awareness. She got home from the West Houston meeting Saturday to find the contract in the mail. Her story is tentatively titled BLIND DATE REDEMPTION and it’s her first sale. (Squee!).
In other exciting news, Sophie Jordan’s debut YA, FIRELIGHT, has been optioned for film! In addition, HarperTeen has also decided to send Sophie on a 5-city book tour in September, the month of FIRELIGHT’S release. She’ll be visiting Chicago, San Francisco, Phoenix, Dallas and Austin. In related news, FIRELIGHT has more foreign sales to report. Turkey and Brazil can be added to the growing list.
Next, Tera Lynn Childs is thrilled to announce that her June 1st release, FORGIVE MY FINS, has already gone back for a third printing!
Last but not least, Kathleen Y’Barbo is pleased to announce that her Rita nominated book THE CONFIDENTIAL LIFE OF EUGENIA COOPER was just named a finalist in Historical Romance in the American Christian Fiction Writers’ CAROL contest. Congrats!
