I want to let everyone know that Desert Breeze Publishing has offered me a contract for No Other. I've reviewed the terms and it's my intention to sign as soon as the hard copy arrives by mail. This is a young publishing house, but I've been very impressed with the quality of their books, their aggressiveness in marketing, and the relationship between the editors and authors. DBP has also expressed interest in publishing In All Things, the continuation of Jakob and Meri's story.

No Other is scheduled for release in May 2010, and In All Things tentative release is November of that same year. I'm excited, and a little nervous, but mostly excited. I'll keep you guys informed and let you know as soon as I put pen to paper. (Update: In All Things is under contract as well and its release IS scheduled for November. Hehe.)

Oh, and I have a website up. Please check it out and sign the guest book. I'd love to get some good discussions going on the forum too. At this stage they can be about anything...well almost anything.:) Here's the link.
