What's A Good Day In The Literary World?

Glad you asked.
Yesterday definitely is an example.

The day started with an email from Jill Noble, owner and publisher of Noble Romance Publishing.
The reason for the email (don't you love twenty questions)? Noble Romance wants to contract my full-length romantic suspense novel SUNDAY AWAKENING.
Think I said "Yes!"? Come on. I'm a reflection in a mirror. I didn’t say anything.
DA couldn't get the word out fast enough.
We still have to wait for the details to be worked out, but it looks like SUNDAY AWAKENING will be released in early December.

Could the day get better?
Silly. I wouldn't ask the question if the answer wasn't YES!

BookWenches notified me they had reviewed Out of the Closet.
BookWenches are some serious readers who take their reviews even more seriously than their love of reading. Was I nervous? Oh, yeah.

4 out of 5 Stars.
Don't take the word of a troll - read it for yourself.

The day was going so well, I bought a MegaMillions lottery ticket. And guess what?
I didn't win a damn thing.

The moral of all of this is: Work your ass off, because some other schmuck is going to win the lottery.


  1. Congratulations David on the contract offer and the review. Both well deserved. I can't wait to read Sunday Awakening in print. And don't forget us little people when you make it big...I am only 4ft 10 but that is not what I meant, just in case you were confused. I am proud to call you a friend.

  2. Aww, Lillian.
    You are a giant with a pen in your hand. Your writing is crazy good.
    Thanks for the support and the comment.
    You and Debbie took the time to crit the entire Sunday Awakening ms. You know I won't ever forget that or be able to ever fully repay you.

  3. You've totally changed my view of trolls. I had not idea they were so sensitive, so talented, and so creative. You might want to think about moving the mirror from under the stairs, just a thought...

  4. Bad hair weeks require a mirror under the stairs.
