I’m still in shock. I found out on Monday night, signed the contract on Wednesday, and the press release went out from Samhain on Thursday morning.
I wanted to tell you right away, all of you who have been so supportive and encouraging throughout my journey, but I haven’t been able to find the words–isn’t that ironic?
When I first found out about Samhain’s call for novellas dealing with childhood fears, I thought it would be a fun excuse to write something new. My awesome writing group encouraged me to put my current project on hold and go for it, and I’m so glad I did.
I’m honoured to be published by one of the biggest, most respected names in the e-publishing world. I’m beyond thrilled that my story was chosen out of over a hundred submissions, and that I’ll be appearing in an anthology with Bram Stoker-award winners.
To say it’s surreal is an understatement.
Thank you so much for reading this blog, for commenting even when you didn’t feel like it, and for all the support and encouragement.
I hope you’ll read “The Bear Who Wouldn’t Leave” when it’s released. And I hope you’ll love it. Maybe, just maybe, it’ll make you look at that teddy bear with a little more suspicion.
If so, I’ve done my job.
PS…Samhain started out publishing romance exclusively, so if you go to their site, don’t be put off by all the bodice rippers–Samhain is getting to be quite a big name in the horror field as well.
