Houston, we have lift-off!

Phoenix Rising has landed at Dreamspinner Press!

I received the email indicating they had gotten the manuscript yesterday. Their review process is approximately two to eight weeks depending on their volume and such. Even though I know this, I will now check my email obsessively for the next eight weeks until I receive a response. I do it EVERY SINGLE TIME I submit a manuscript. I don't know WHY I do it, but I do.

I find myself having an easier time writing because I only have to create new characters, not a whole new environment or world. I like being able to revisit Bam Kiseu and co. I like being able to delve deeper into the characters I created in Night Kiss. Yes, there are multiple pairings happening and I like that, too. I am trying something a little different in Phoenix Rising. I'm not going to say what it is, but I hope it works out well. I will definitely let you know if the manuscript is accepted and when the estimated release date will be!

Remember to Share the journey, Fellow Travelers!
