It's happened! I've signed a contract with OakTara Publishers for my novel, Misstep. And it's not just a one-book contract; no, it's for three! Yep, Misstep will be followed by Faux Pas, which will finally be followed by Misjudge. All three take place in Road's End, Virginia, and follow the adventures (or misadventures, depending on your viewpoint) of Hugh Foster, recently-retired Air Force chaplain, his wife, and the quirky senior citizen residents of Road's End. Hugh thought it was tough living in 13 houses on 11 bases on two continents for the past 27 years. That was a roll in a pit of marshmallows compared to what he's gotten himself into this time.
Since the first book is written, all that remains is--well, big bunches of stuff. Editing, more editing, followed by... you guessed it, even more editing. Once Misstep is ready for publication, I'll be turning my attention once more to completing Faux Pas, which is nearly finished, and we'll begin with the editing all over again. Last, but not least, Misjudge will go through the same process. The next few months will be busy ones; thank goodness, we've already made the move from Alaska to Tennessee!
Thank you to Terry Burns (my beloved agent) and Hartline Literary Agency, as well as to Ramona Tucker of OakTara Publishers. I won't let you down--or you either, my dears friends, family, and readers.
Until the next time...
