My First Contract

This will be a quick post, but I have to share my excitement! Tonight, at the opening session at ACFW Heartsong Presents announced two new author contracts. One of them was for my WWII novel Canteen Dreams! I am so excited, I'm almost shaking again as I type this. God is so good!

Last year at this conference is when I met the editors who developed an interest in the story. It was through talking to them that God planted the idea in my heart. The story almost wrote itself -- it's such a neat piece of history that I wanted to tell. So look for it in October 2007!

And the awesome thing is how genuinely excited for me folks are. I think my mentor Colleen Coble was even more excited than I am. God is good. What more can I say!
