I had JUST finished watching Ocean's 13 and I checked my email and there it was, an offer from Samhain for Hot Shot. I MAY have waited ten seconds before emailing back YES YES YES!!!! Then I sat at the computer and stared for ages. Of course it was late and everyone online was asleep and Trish is on a train in the Sierra Nevadas, so I celebrated quietly. Didn't touch the floor all day, though!

I had gone to SARA earlier in the evening and mentioned that I loved my WRP cover and was so glad that book sold, but I REALLY wanted to sell Hot Shot (mainly so I don't have to mess with it anymore) and 2 hours later....

I didn't think I'd sleep, but I did. At least until 4 AM ;)

Got the contract today, about to go over it. And I do have some minor revisions on the back end.

I saw this on the loop, of course, but I'm just now getting a chance to say congrats!

So ... are we going to be treated to more George pics during edits? (We can only hope.)

Congrats again. You so deserve this.

Wow, Mary you are on fire! (No pun intended). Congratulations. I've heard nothing but good things about Samhain from Isabo Kelly who is published with them. Can't wait to see it listed on line.

Y'all, this is the best - this is something I've been waiting for for YEARS. I started this book in 2000 and have revised and tightened and tweaked and rearranged and cut, and....

thank you SO much for sharing this with me and being excited for me.
