Roses For Kate!!!!!!!!!!!!


I'm celebrating this week! My very good friend Kate Carlisle made her first sale this week to NAL publishing house!
I happen to love NAL because I write for them too, and now I have even more confidence in their intelligence and vision! Because they read Kate's proposal for her book HOMICIDE IN HARDBACK and said we must have this writer!
Kate made a 3 book deal for her first sale and tomorrow at our RWA meeting, she'll receive 3 roses from our chapter presidents as a way to mark the occasion!
You know what this says? It says that talent, like cream, will eventually rise to the top. It says that if you believe in yourself and want something badly enough, you will find a way to make it happen. And it says that there really is no substitute for persistence.
So don't give up on your dreams. Be like Kate. Keep reaching for the stars and pretty soon, you'll grab a handful for yourself!

    Hi Cyndi! Good to see you, and thanks for the congrats. I still get goosebumps myself when I remember that phone call. In fact, I'm getting black and blue from pinching myself to see if it's a dream!

    Okay, guess I'd better get back to writing...... ;-)
