May 2019 – WOW!

This is the best May I’ve ever had. Got a new job with the Paranormal Romance Guild, which is a resource for writers, and last night I was offered a publishing contract for Dreamspinner Press’ Advent Calendar, which means I’m a real author!!!!

Now I need to finish the Prenup from Hell and pitch it to DSP. I only have 3 or 4 chapters to go.

I’m exhausted but really happy. I also want to write a huge fic of Spock and Michael’s childhoods in the Terran Universe…because you know me. I love my fanfic.
