My Novella to be Published!

I’ve made some changes around my site to reflect some thrilling news that came my way this week — Carina Press has offered to publish my novella, The Sevenfold Spell. Carina Press is an imprint of Harlequin, and they publish ebooks.

Needless to say, I’ve been so excited about this that I’ve had more time to blog, because I keep waking up at 3:30 in the morning.

I got The Call on Tuesday, just after a field trip with my husband and daughter. We were in a parking lot, ready to go into The Loop for some lunch when my cellphone rang. Since this is an unusual occurrence when I’m with my husband (who is the only one who calls that number 90% of the time), I took the call. I thought it was possible that it was someone in publishing, but it was more likely that it was that insurance company that mistakenly keeps wanting to put me through Medical Underwriting. The connection was bad, so I couldn’t really hear what the caller said until I heard the words, The Sevenfold Spell.


After several callbacks and more bad phone connections than I’ve suffered in months (it always happens!), I got the story. They want to publish it this fall!

    Thanks again! I guess I need to come up with one of those one-sentence “what’s it about” thingies. It’s called an elevator pitch, isn’t it? Here goes:

    It’s the Sleeping Beauty story, as told by a spinster who who owns the spinning wheel upon which the princess is fated to prick her finger.
