The book drought is over!

I just found out today that my next book in the Butterfly Box series was accepted. I am so excited! This book is Jocelyn's story. In this book you find out a little more about the circumstances surrounding Ava's death. You get to know a little more about each of the Butterfly Girls and what's going on in their lives. And . . . you get to know Jocelyn's secret! Of course, the book will steer us towards the next book, which will be Andi's story.

For those of you who may not know how this process of manuscript acceptance works, basically, I still have to submit my manuscript to my editor, who then sends it out to evaluators, who then give feedback and say whether they think the book will be successful. I still get things rejected so there is no guarantee that something I write will get accepted. That's why it's always so exciting when I get that wonderful email or phone call telling me the grand news.

I will be running a fun contest soon in conjunction with my first book, as soon as I get the release date for the next book, title still unknown.

Until then, I'm doing the happy dance. Even if it is snowing!
