Let's hope the whole week's this exciting...

As you can see, I've updated my TBReviewed pic. That's because I'm making some good reading progress. Yesterday I finished reading NIGHTFALL by Stephen Leather, which was outstanding. I love, love, loved it. Seriously. I can't say it enough.

This afternoon I started reading HORNS by Joe Hill. This is my first JH book. I've actually got his other two books on my horror shelf (not for review, I bought them myself) but haven't gotten around to reading them yet. Looks like this one's a good place to start. Love the cover. Although, I did read and enjoyed LOCKE & KEY: Welcome To Lovecraft, last year.

Okay, enough about reading...

I've got some awesome news to share today. I'm very excited to announce that over the weekend, I signed a contract with Eternal Press. It's for a book called, SHADE OF GREY, which is the first installment in a trilogy I'm calling Omega. It's a romantic Sci-Fi story set in Australia, with some alien-type stuff involved. ;) I've filled out and returned all of my forms now, and can't wait to share more info as I get it. But for now: Yay!

Okay, my last two posts for the Novelspot's Behind the Scenes feature are now posted. So, let me give you all the links:
I had a great time taking part. And if you read my little path to publication, I hope you enjoyed it. :)

Well, this week's off to a cool start. I got a bunch of things off my to-do list already. The other main thing I'd like to tackle this week is the second draft revision for one of my shorter novellas. It's only 65 pages (double spaced) so I'm hoping that I'll be able to get through it without too many probs. :) I've been thinking a lot about some upcoming tales that I'd like to weave, and will need to adjust my goals to fit everything in. Which is cool.

And before I go... I got a fantastic review for WITHER the other day. It got a 5 Lips rating from TwoLips Reviews. Thanks Merrylee! Here's a little of what she said: "What at first seems to be an odd blend of story genres works so well, Wither is perhaps the best category-length science fiction romance I’ve ever read. It reminded me a lot of Firefly, with a little bit of High Noon and The Howling mixed in for a solid, enjoyable read."

You can read the whole thing HERE.

As you can tell, I'm pretty excited today!
