As some of you may know who follow my blog, this past January I landed a four-book deal with Soul  Mate Publishing for my Cass & Nick series. The first book in the series, “Married in the Nick of Nine,” will be released in early July. But before that happens, there’s work to be done. The first item on the to-do list is editing. Yes, Deborah Gilbert at Soul Mate Publishing was impressed with my writing and my story, but in the publishing world, a good editor will work with you to take your book to the next level.

Not only did Soul Mate want “Married in the Nick of Nine,” they wanted the entire Cass and Nick series—“Married in the Nick of Nine,” “The Baby in the Window,” “One Harte, Two Loves,” and “Renee’s Return.” “Married in the Nick of Nine,” will be released in July 2014.
