Once upon a time there was a lovely queen in the Kingdom of Writerville. (We'll call her Queen M) There was also a sweet and sometimes funny princess who does P90x and happens to look fabulous for her age. (We'll call her... Princess Jennifer)
Stay with me
Anyhew, Queen M
emailed er, wrote a short quilled letter to Princess Jennifer one day. In the letter the Queen lamented about how nice it would be to have a book that would be released around Christmas time. Princess Jennifer couldn't agree more. So Queen M said to Princess Jennifer, "Hark, Entangled Publishing has a submission call for Christmas novellas now. Why don't we each write one and submit it there?"
Princess Jennifer could not have been more pleased at the news. Although she was a little concerned since she had never written a novella before. But she diligently set aside her Fast Draft manuscript she'd been working on and started writing her Christmas novella. Well, after a fortnight, Princess Jennifer was 3/4 of the way done with her novella and very happy with what she'd written. So she decided to
Unfortunately, Queen M had sad news. She had not begun writing her Christmas story because of a feared conflict with her current publisher. But as disappointed as Princess Jennifer was, she continued to write and finish her novella and was able to submit it right on time.
Then lo and behold after another fortnight, someone from Entangled Publishing contacted her! Countess Stacy loved Princess Jennifer's novella although seemed quite puzzled over the princess' choice of using Cupid as a character in a Christmas story. (You see, she did not realize how warped a sense of humor the princess had.)
However, Princess Jennifer did not mind changing her story one bit and turned it into a Valentine's Day novella. Countess Stacy was delighted and quickly sent the contract over to the princess. Then they all lived happily ever after.
And now the shorter Contemporary version of the story:
A LITTLE BIT CUPID!!!
A novella in which a loner must find true love before midnight on Valentine’s Day or risk having humanity lose love forever, and with the help of Cupid’s son himself, she seeks out Mr. Wrong while Mr. Right is right under her nose.
It's scheduled for release sometime in January, 2013!!!
Don't you just love happy endings?
