I know you worked very hard for this - Congrats.

Are we allowed to say we (virtually) knew you when...?

And a little fun for today. Today, this art about the main character of my fantasy novel Crystal Shade has reached the stars for the second time, this time aboard the Space Shuttle Atlantis (Minus text and logos).

Thanks for the good wishes Cookie,Claudie, Watcher and Guardian. I'll be keeping you all updated on the process. Hope to have a release date for the novella soon and the novel should be out within a year. Still having a hard time believing it.

I got the cover for the novella the other week---that made it seem much more real. I'll post it as soon as I'm allowed.

Filled out my cover art request form for the novel last night---that was surreal! No idea how long it will take but I can guarantee I'll show it as soon as I have permission!

I am excited to say that my newly-published eBook, RUNNING, has been available for only four days and already has two 5-star reviews (and no, not written by relatives!) It has also hovered around the 90th mark in Kindle eBooks for the "political" category. Which might not be high, but I'm pretty thrilled, since this is my first and it's so brand new.

SQUEEEEEE!!!!!!!! I got a request for a full on Monday! It's a great agency and is a testament to putting some research into your agents before querying. The agent in question represents mostly YA, but by reading her blog, I discovered that she was interested in historicals as well.

So now I am waiting to hear back. She said to expect at least 60 days. It's a little nerve wracking but I'm taking it in stride. At least that is what I'm telling myself... If she passes, I'm just hoping for some feedback!

Congrats to all of you have been signed or are releasing e-books! Hopefully I will be joining the ranks of the signed soon...

I just received a letter from a Spanish publisher who would like to acquire the Spanish translation rights of my Crystal Shade trilogy. I'm surprised because the release of the first volume is still months away. But every progress is a progress, right? So here we go with an almost silent squeee!!! :)

Squeeeeee! And my space traveling little angel is back on Earth. :)

The final statistics of my winged lady's space traveling art (See below); her adventuring spirit has spent 28 days, 12 hours, 7 minutes and 19 seconds in space, took an exciting journey of 11,795,083 miles and made 448 orbits around Earth on two subsequent shuttle missions, Endeavour STS-134 and Atlantis STS-135.

Space Angel Achievements

Endeavour STS-134 - 1st Commemorative Flight Certificate of a Guardian Angel
Image

Atlantis STS-135 - 2nd Commemorative Flight Certificate of a Guardian Angel

So whatever will happen with her soon-to-be-released novel in the future (Let's hope the bests), my beloved little winged lady is already made fantasy angel history. And Gracie's space adventures are far from over as once again, she will go where no fantasy angel has ever gone before. :)
