I have to be honest – I, the writer, cannot actually put my excitement into words. The Order of the Key, my young adult contemporary fantasy novel, has been contracted for publication by Distinguished Press, a relatively new publishing company that specializes in the publication of series. Yes, you read that correctly. Series. Which means, not only has Order been picked up, but the entire Keys and Guardians series.
The contract was finalized yesterday and the Distinguished Press family has already welcomed me with open arms, and by family, I mean the staff and the authors. I can already tell this is going to be a fantastic experience.
For those of you who don’t already know, the story of Jacklyn Madison, my main character, was the first thing I ever wrote in my adult life. The first incarnation of this story was an epic trilogy at 600 pages apiece because I had no idea what I was doing at the time. I wrote this insane unwieldy thing that doesn’t look remotely like the thing you will get to see in your hands when this book is released. It has been a ridiculously long journey with this character and I have reached a new stage, a new adventure.
My novel is getting published. Everything will be different from here on out.
To those of you who have enjoyed listening to me ramble on about my writer’s journey, I hope you will enter a new stage with me because I can’t wait to share it with you.
Thanks again for all of your love and support. I’ll keep you posted on all the release information once I know!
