I'm Very Excited!

I received the email I've been waiting for, the book is coming back from the editor! YAY!

Four years of waiting for this, and it's finally happening! Only months away from publishing, I can't express how wonderful this news is to me, and I'm sure, to my sister. 


She and I talked out our plan for getting the edits fixed and moving on to publishing last night. Yes, Fable will come first, which means we will put the novella to the side until we are downloaded to Amazon, but I'm sure most of you don't mind since this is what we've been waiting for. There is only so much free time in a day to get things done.

But, the novella will be out some time this fall or winter, so we have plenty of time to get it finished. I hope that all of you enjoy Fable and I look forward to your feedback, and hopefully reviews of our novel. 

In celebration I have decided to give away a Starbucks card for 20.00 to a randomly selected person on April 18th. All you have to do is join in and leave comments to my blog posts. The more comments you leave the more times your name will be entered. I will draw the name and announce that day!

So keep your comments coming, I look forward to them. There are some of you that have been very supportive and I appreciate you! And don't worry, there will be other contests along the way, so your chances are great that you will win one day!

Thanks to all of you that have joined this blog, or my fanpage or both! You are great! It means the world to me to know there are those out there that are cheering us on and will read our book!

Until Thursday, have a great week, and don't forget to post, I'm putting your names in a hat each time you do! Gotta love Starbucks!

Love, Lisa

  3. Hello my friend,

    I cannot express how happy I am for you. The day that Janet Roots introduced us and we became critique partners was truly a great one. I've watched you pour yourself into this book, watched you and Tanya/Toni edit and re-edit. We've become friends, sounding boards, critics, supporters, and fans of each other.

    You can't wait to hold it in your hands? Well, neither can I! You better sign my copy too.

    Love ya!

  4. I can feel the enthusiasm exuding from your blog page and can't say I can blame for that. Congratulations! It's a great achievement. Now you've got some promotion ahead of you. I wish you great success with it all.

    1. Thanks Lee, and you're right, I am excited! I just glanced though the edits and thank God most of it is punctuation, not too many changes in the story, just a few! I am so relieved!

  5. Congratulations Lisa. I know it will be a joy to hold your book in your hands and actually see it there - all that hard work - finally ready to go public. Now, as Lee said, is all the promotion. Sometimes that is harder than writing the book.
