An Author Finally Living Her Dream
My publishing journey was a long and arduous one, probably worthy of a book in itself. After 5 years of rejections, and shelving my first novel 3 times, I self-published THE RICHEST SEASON in 2006. Within a year, the novel did so well that I signed with a major literary agent who sold the rights at auction to Hyperion Books, along with a second novel to be written in a year.
In June 2008 THE RICHEST SEASON debuted in hardcover, with some additional scenes. It was a BookSense pick. In June 2009 it was released as a trade paperback, perfect for book clubs.
SO HAPPY TOGETHER debuts July 7, 2009. It is also an INDIE NEXT PICK!
