I got an email saying I needed to post. And I’m a mindless drone, so I’m doing just that (and why do I keep typing ‘donig’ instead of ‘doing’ today? That’s donig, not dong. Minds out of the gutter now!)
So, I actually have some news. *clears throat*
I FINISHED THE TENANT!

I already squealed in glee about it on Twitter, but didn’t mention it here. For the first time in forever (aka since I had BabyO), I actually met a self-imposed deadline. Can I hear a YAY?!
More, I’m actually satisfied with it. It’s now with a couple lovely ladies who happen to also be AWESOME authors, and I’m waiting for their notes before I submit it.
Yes, you read that right. After two years of avoiding publishers because the control-freak inside me needed to have the last word in everything, I decided to submit The Tenant to Entangled Publishing, and more specifically the Lovestruck imprint—and even sacrifice the lovely cover I’d designed. Sniffle. We’ll see how that goes. Keep fingers crossed, please!
What’s more, I already submitted Magic at Work to them. I was honest about it being self-published, and hope they will give it a chance. It and The Tenant belong in the same universe, and I’m thinking of making them into a series.
Any suggestions as to a name for a series of Contemporary Romance novels, novellas, and shorts, some with a hint of Magic Realism, are more than welcome!
