Woo-hoo! I Got the Call (or, rather, the email)! Yes!

I'm very excited to announce that my Historical Western Romance Novel, Dangerous Desires, has been accepted for publication by Lyrical Press, LLC! Woo-hoo! I'm a published author! Yes! I've been doing the Snoopy Dance all day. I'm walking on air. I can't even begin to tell you how excited I am. We're still ironing out all the details, and I don't have a release date as of yet, but I do have a cover! Yes! Are you ready? Drum roll please...
Isn't it gorgeous? Author Renee Lyons, aka Renee Rocco, my publisher, did the cover art. Isn't she great! I absolutely love it! In addition to author and publisher, Renee is a Cover Artist at Eternal Press and Cover Art Director at Dark Eden Press, so she knows her stuff. :) Thank you, Renee! I'm thrilled to be a part of Lyrical Press, and to have Frank and Renee Rocco represent my work. They're great people, and I'm blessed to have found them. Happy writing, everyone!

Carol, this is fantastic!!

I can't believe you've got your cover so fast. And an awesome cover too. You go, woman!

I hope you'll share the journey as you go along. I am so pumped for you. That's the best news I've heard all day.

Carol, you are an absolute dream. We adore you. Congrats. You truly deserve this chance.

Maria, I'm also an author, so I know how exciting it is to get the cover for a book - especially that very first cover! I'm the cover artist as well (yes, I'm a jack-of-all-trades lol), so as soon as we decided to sign Carol I got busy on her cover. :)

Congratulations, Carol:) Way to go! Seeing the cover for something you've labored over for several weeks/months is always exciting!

Carol Burge said...

Thank you all.

Maria, I will absolutely share the journey!

Renee, I don't even know what to say...luv you guys!

Molly, thank you. It was more like years, though. Lots of years! LOL

Hi Carol, congratulations. I just learned about Lyrical Press, and will be adding a blog by Renee to my blog on Title Magic, on March 18. I'm so excited for you!
The cover is sinfully delicious.
