After the Contract....

Last week, I officially signed the book series contract with Abingdon Press. Whahoo! There were a few changes made that were all wonderful, generous, and in the best interest of both parties. For those of you not yet published, I want to encourage you to find a literary agent. And as with publishing, be patient for the right agent. My agent did more for me with this contract than I ever could have done on my own. She's the greatest.

Pretty soon there will be a notice in Publishers Weekly about the sale to Abingdon Press for the 'Daughters of the Potomac Series'. 

'Daughters of the Potomac' a historical novel series, sold to Abingdon Press, offers the reader a journey toward redemption, as three women search for love and acceptance in a world that would deny them both. Eliza leaves behind all she has in order to follow her heart and the man she loves into the Maryland frontier. Darcy seeks to unravel a lifetime of memories and the absence of her parents, and finally Sarah, an indentured servant, stands in the crossroads between love and duty.
