Then the next week her G-rated Regency Christmas novella, Christmas at Farley Manor, reached number one in the Regency category in the Kindle Store at Amazon.

Joan Reeves received her countersigned contract the day before Christmas so she feels free now to reveal that she sold world French rights, print and ebook, to Bragelonne, the largest publisher of paranormal novels in France. A French editor obtained a copy of one of Joan’s ebooks, the romantic comedy Jane (I’m Still Single) Jones, and fell in love with the book! In one day, Joan had a big contract offer and a NY agent who negotiated a fabulous deal with Bragelonne who, by the way, wanted not one book, but three of Joan’s romantic comedies!
