My Good News!

As promised, here it is. I’ve accepted an offer from Random House Canada to publish my book–the one I’ve been working on for 6 years. I will be working with Anne Collins, who is one of the best editors in Canada, and for my book, the very best. I knew she was intelligent from her first email, but the meeting we had showed that she got everything I am trying to achieve with this novel. I’m so excited!

This has been a long process and there is still another revision to come. But with editorial input, I know this novel is going to move from where it is now to everything it can be.
