Greetings from Victoria, BC! Vacation is still in full effect, but I'm popping in to interrupt the blog hiatus with some long-awaited great news—I finally sold a second book to Harlequin Blaze! I found out this afternoon while driving around Vancouver Island, and though my phone cut out on my editor, I heard enough to the know it was the news I'd been giving myself gray hairs over.
It's been an entire year since the first sale, and while I'd heard from multiple series romance authors that the second sale is infamously the hardest (since the first is often a bit of a fluke), I won't pretend I wasn't starting to doubt my ability to ever come up with another winning proposal.
If you're curious about the details, the book's working title has been Honeymoon for One, and it's about an actress who pulls a runaway-bride act on her wedding day and meets an unscrupulous (but alluring) pilot when she runs off to enjoy her Caribbean honeymoon, sans two-timing groom. I'll be sure to include a few lines in a Six Sunday post when I'm back in Boston next week.
Thanks to everyone who told me to hang in there through the failed proposals and jags of self-doubt, and the looong spells of cricket-chirping these past twelve-plus months. Couldn't do this job without you guys!
