A new home for Blackstone~

Well, the news is out and I can finally open my mouth about it.  I’ve been sitting on this for a couple of weeks and the wait has been killing me, but now I can break the silence.  I am thrilled to share with you that The Blackstone Affair has found a new home with Atria Books, an imprint of Simon & Schuster, and has been welcomed by the same house that publishes the likes of Colleen Hoover, Jamie McGuire, and Vince Flynn!!!  Needless to say, I am grinning like a Cheshire cat since I’ve received the offer and I couldn’t be happier to be working with Atria Books and am in utter awe of my superhero agent, Jane Dystel of Dystel & Goderich Literary Management.  Wow and a head shake is all I have to say about that.

Here is the link to the press release that Publisher’s Weekly put out in an exclusive on December 17, 2012.  A very nice early Christmas present I would say.

So what does that mean for my series?  Well, it means that The Blackstone Affair Parts 1 – 3, are no longer indie/self-published, and it means the books will be in bookstores, in actual print that you can hold in your hand!!!  *somebody’s pretty excited about this little bit*

Naked and All In are already up under the Atria imprint and Eyes Wide Open is still to come of course, as I am working hard to finish the manuscript in the time frame I’ve set for the book.  Having a publisher also means that the book will be available for pre-ordering when the time comes and you won’t have to worry about “when” once Atria announces that date.  *Please don’t shoot the messenger…I just write the books now, not publish them*  That was a joke and I hope you’re smiling.

I think this calls for a little celebration.  *pouring some Blackstone Malbec and tipping my glass to Ethan and Brynne*
