Pssst! Have You Heard?

Happy Tuesday All,

Didn't I say to keep an eye on my blog? Sure, it's afternoon...and normally I'd have a post up in the morning...but hey, sometimes it's fun to shake things up a bit.

Hope everyone got to see the title change in yesterday's post. Yes, Surreal is now All's Fair In Love & Lion. My editor wanted a new title, and so I sent her a list of ideas. She chose 2, I took some time to consider both options, got some feedback, and then decided on All's Fair In Love & Lion. Editor says she loves it, so that's good!

So...what's the big news? What's so exciting?

I'll need another drumroll please...

Are you sure?
Really positive?
Really, really positive?
Okay....here it is...

All's Fair In Love & Lion
will release in July of this year (2013)!!!!

I can hardly believe it! Editor gave me the go ahead to announce, so I'm announcing.  I'm knee-deep in the edits. The cover art sheet they asked me to fill out has been turned in. I've sent in the dedication and the acknowledgements and my author bio. So now, it's just a matter of getting everything pulled together.

From what I understand it will first be released as E-book for Kindle and Nook available at Soul Mate Publishing's website, Amazon, and Barnes & Noble. Then later on it'll be available in print.

I appreciate all of you accompanying me on this journey, and I thank you for the well-wishes, support, encouragement, laughter, shared stories, and everything. I hope all of you will join me to as I continue this journey called writing and publishing. I also hope you enjoy All's Fair In Love & Lion when it comes out!

Have A Totally Terrific Tuesday!

The title was Tess's idea...she's awesome and a fantastic critique partner to boot.
