Okay, the deal is done. My contemporary erotic romance, You've Been A Bad Girl, has just sold to NAL Heat, which is a division of Penguin (along with Berkley and Jove).
I'm grateful beyond words to my agent, Jacky Sach, of BookEnds Literary Agency.
Jacky and I had developed two additional ideas for a second novel, which she also presented. NAL has indicated interest in one of the two so, as soon as we deliver You've Been a Bad Girl, it's back to the drawing board for Possession, Leah and Kadeem's story.
Thanks to everyone who sent me emails and message of support. I appreciate the kind words enormously.
