I'm new here also, referred by my email buddy and CP Nikki. I have been writing since high school, but while I had a handful of short stories and half-started attempts at novels, I did not finish my first MS until 2012. That year was a whirlwind as I went on to finish two more. The third took much longer as it under went such major revisions that it is not an understatement to stay it was three different books. I've recently subbed this third to several publishers including Carina Press. My second novel is an inspirational and I just received an offer of contract on it. Let the craziness begin!
