Good News!

Happy Monday, all!

Well, I've hinted to some news but now I can officially share/announce that I will have a new sweet contemporary romance book entitled KISSING KENDALLcoming out this December 3, 2012!

WOOT!

I'm very excited to have been working with such a great team over at Entangled Publishing.

So how did this all come about?

Well, as some of you know I have written for Avalon Books in the past. Then they were bought out by Amazon and I was left with the decision of what to do with this manuscript. I have a book called GEORGIE ON HIS MIND that was published with Avalon back in 2010 and many people asked me back then if I was going to write a book for Brad and Kendall, who were secondary characters.

My answer was, "Nnnn--er, yes." LOL
(To be honest, I hadn't really thought about it, but enough people asked, so I figured I should. And so I did.)

I had thought about self-publishing this book, but many authors friends pointed me in the direction of Entangled. I still wasn't sure. Then...lo and behold Entangled announced they were launching a new sweet romance line called BLISS, and well, at that point I figured I couldn't get a better sign. I had to try and sub to them.
And well, you know the rest... :-)

My editor is super nice and she's a super fun tweeter too. You can find her on TWITTER HERE and her full of awesomesauce assistant HERE.

~~~~~~~~~~~
In other news...it was Halloween this past Saturday. Yeah, a little late for us because of the hurricane, but we're fortunate we were able to have it at all.

The kiddo:
You can't tell from the picture but she had her hair sprayed pink to match her punk rock skeleton costume. She got a TON of candy. But... not one full-size Twix bar!!! (my personal fav)

We (meaning she) just fun size Twix, which in my opinion are WAY too small to be any "fun". :)


So that's the good news for me.

Any good news you want to share?
Did you get a lot of trick-or-treaters this year?

LOVE the costume!! She looks great.

And CONGRATULATIONS on Kissing Kendall. I've read a couple Entangled Publishing books lately and I absolutely LOVED all of them. Sounds like a really good house.

Congrats!

I glad you were able to have a fun Halloween too, though the news of the Twix is so very sad. ;)

Gabrielle Meyer said...

Congratulations on the new book, Jennifer!! We had a lot of trick-or-treaters in our neighborhood, but we had the most popular house by far, because we gave away four little kittens! (And, yes, the parents all approved!) How often do you go out trick-or-treating and come home with a new kitten?!?! :) I'm still amazed it worked - and SOOO thankful to be done with kittens in our house.

Julie Jarnagin said...

Congrats!!!

LTM said...

Jill Kemerer said...

Huge congrats, Jennifer!!! I've heard so many great things about Entangled--yay!!

L. Diane Wolfe said...

Congrats!! Sounds like Bliss is the perfect fit.

I saw your comment - thank you for the offer. Feb. 18th is taken now, but Feb. 15th is open. Or we could do it later in the month.

Jessica R. Patch said...

Yay!!!! This is great news and congratulations! :)

Susan Flett Swiderski said...

Woo HOO! Congrats on the new book release coming out. You totally cracked me up about the fun-sized Twix bars being too small to be any fun. You've gotta eat about a half dozen of them, silly.

Dianne K. Salerni said...

Congratulations on finding a new publishing house, a home for your manuscript, and a super editor!

Linda G. said...

That's fantastic news! Congrats. :D

Sherrinda said...

Woohooo! Congratulations on the new book...that is fabulous news. How have I not heard about Engtangled's new line? Can't wait to read it!

Shelley Munro said...

That's so exciting. Congrats, Jennifer!

Susan Fields said...

Congratulations - what exciting news!

I couldn't believe it, but we got a total of two - yes, TWO - trick-or-treaters besides my youngest daughter and her group. I bought two huge bags of candy that I had to have my children hide from me because we had so much left over. I think the neighborhood is getting old.

Nancy said...

I am so happy for your new book. You certainly got in on a good thing. What fun to celebrate a holiday after cleaning up the mess. And your daughter looks adorable.

Sally Clements said...

Yay! Congratulations, Jennifer, that's great news!
There was a Halloween party in my house of 14 year olds..way to make me feel instantly ancient! (but at least I grabbed some cocktail sausages and sweeties!)

Sally Clements said...

When you have your new book up, would you let me know and I'll add it in to my Christmas list? http://bit.ly/UCpC5U

Susanne Drazic said...

CONGRATS Jennifer! Awesome news.

Carol Kilgore said...

Very cool - and I love her costume!

We had enough - and one special one who will most likely be the subject of my Halloween blog post next year.

Good news is I'm so late getting around to blog posts because I had such a great beachy fling I'm having trouble getting back into a routine :)

Carol Kilgore said...

See what I mean?

Congrats on your new release!

I'm reading Sunny Days for Sam right now and loving it :)

Lynn said...

That is very good news! I'm happy that all worked out for you regarding a new publisher.

The Happy Whisk said...

Love the pink. Great stuff. And congrats on the writing news.

Go you. Rah.

Sandra Cox said...

Congrats, Jen. I met several of the Entangled crew at the beach retreat. Very nice folk.
