I am thrilled to announce that stage one of the Summer of Submissions has been a success! I’ve signed all the papers, and my novella Nuttycracker Sweet will be released this Christmas season by Fiery Seas Publishing!
I feel so honored to be working with two different and fantastic publishers creating two entirely different kinds of stories. The Tethering Series is YA urban fantasy and Nuttycracker Sweet is a romantic comedy with pointe shoes.
The plan was simple. Get to Portland, Maine, dance The Nutcracker, get a nice, fat paycheck and don’t murder your dance partner. And most definitely, do not, under any circumstances, fall in love with him.
A snowy road trip strands Elle Grant in a tiny cabin better suited for serial killings than rehearsals for two professional ballet dancers. With no one but the incredibly talented, excruciatingly handsome, and notoriously terrible Zachary Benson and a few taxidermy woodland creatures for company, Elle’s Christmas plans are officially ruined. Can she and Zach learn to like each other enough to dance together? And can Elle get home without losing her heart to the Christmas Cavalier?
I’ve already filled out my cover art forms and press sheets! This project is going to move quickly, and I love it!
I’ll update you again next week with news of the Summer of Submissions. I’m hoping to have the middle grade project ready to submit by the end of the month. So, fingers crossed that editing goes well, and I will call signing with another publisher a solid win for the Summer of Submissions!
