Raine's Secret Garden

Santa Baby

Christmas has come and gone already??
Where did it go? I barely had time to get used to the idea!

Seriously, though—here’s hoping everyone enjoyed their holiday, and it was full of lots of love, sharing, and enough good food to make it special. :)

Santa was pretty good to me, bless his heart. I don’t have a lot of relatives, and don’t always get along with the ones I do have, but they are precious to me. And I don’t have a lot of friends, but the ones I have are very special. Scratch that…they’re downright AWESOME. And having that can go a long way toward making some of the rough times better.

One of my favorite gifts from Santa? They were all favorites.
One that I’m going to talk about here?
Well, Santa opened that great big satin-lined red grab bag of his for me, and lo and behold…

I sold another manuscript to Samhain.
The jolly old gent must’ve known I sorely needed it, lol. Amazingly, this was the revise and resubmit story from earlier this year, which I was pretty sure was dead in the water. Sort of a rebirth for Christmas. Imagine that!

So far, it’s being given a release date of June 2012. But I’ll discuss details later. I just really liked the story, and I’m glad I’ll be able to share it.

Happy Holidays, everyone. And may I just say…
Whew!!

    Congratulations, Raine! That’s incredible news considering this is supposed to be the dead zone season of publishing, and definitely a great Christmas present! I hope your release date stays solid.

    Thanks, Bernard!
    I think I really needed this sale. A little motivation, if you know what I mean (and a nice way to end the year). :)

    That is lovely news, congratulations! Persistance always pays off, as does much hard work. :)

    We had a terrific Christmas, although I had to go on a quick road trip/rescue mission the day after. Discovered the best pizza place in the state while on the road, though. I only have to drive two hundred miles to have a slice. It’s actually worth it, lol.

    I hope your New Year is filled with joy.

    Thank you!! Big yes on the persistence, from one who was borderline ready to toss it in. ;)
    (and I’d love to meet the pizza worth a 200 mile drive, lol).

    Wishing you a wonderful New Year, full of exciting discoveries, Lynn. :)
