Release Date! And Other News

I have to build a new section for my Books page. You have no idea how much this annoys me. Not! It thrills me. I have to build a Coming section for the sale to Five Star Expressions I mentioned several weeks back. My 2007 Golden Heart finalist manuscript, now titled WHERE SHE BELONGS, will release from Five Star in December 2011! Clap hands, pound drums, dance insanely. It feels so great to have something new to put on my Books page. It’s been a long four years for “me.” For Cindy. BORROWING ALEX released in June 2007, so by the time December 2011 gets here it will have been 4.5 long years without a Cindy release. Yes, Penny has been picking up my slack, but not everyone familiar with my Cindy work knows me as Penny. Penny has had three releases since 2007, so in reality I’ve been busy writing and publishing all along. However, that doesn’t lessen the thrill of A NEW CINDYPK!!! I am très excited! May this be the start of many more CindyPKs to come.

In other news, I am très sad to announce that Penny’s editor is leaving Red Sage. Theresa Stevens has operated the Editorrent website with Alicia Rasley (of the great workshops and how-to pamphlets and books) for a while now. Theresa is leaving Red Sage to begin a new venture with Alicia. Together, they will write and publish writing guides for authors. Theresa was an awesome editor, and I will miss her. But I’m looking forward to more great writing guides from this incredible team. They’ll also begin offering workshops in September. You can read all about the new venture on their blog.

Congratulations, Theresa and Alicia!

    Congratulations all around!!!! Fabulous news about your book, but I’m sorry I’ll have to wait for it.

    I hope you have an equally fabulous editor as Theresa for your Penny books.

    Congrats on the upcoming book!

    Thanks, Double E’s. Edie, I don’t currently have a submission in as Penny for Red Sage. I was thinking of writing a sequel to one of my published novellas for the Secrets anthologies. If I do, at that point I’ll get assigned a new editor. So far, three novellas for Secrets with three different editors! The next would be my fourth with four different editors. Whoever first said editors play musical chairs wasn’t kidding. 😉

    You’re telling me, Natalie! My editor grabbed the last 2011 slot for me. December was it! Otherwise, we’d be waiting until 2012. Yikes.
