    MY NOVEL SOLD!! a two-book deal!

    remember a long time ago, like, um... more than 2 years ago, i posted how i was working on a novel? well after many, many hours invested in revisions, it finally sold last thursday to grand central publishing (formerly warner books)!!

    not only the one book, but two! i'm still walking around numb, i'm going to be a published fiction author! hard work pays off!

    however, i'm still proud as ever for my craft books. i'm currently working on a really fun sewing book for potter craft!!! i feel so honored, and i feel i owe so much to get crafty because back in the day, it is where i'd get inspired to live the crafty life...i want to spend more time here again, hopefully i can find the time again!

    if you are working on a dream project or book idea, do it, do not stop!!! commit and take it as far as you can, you might just be surprised at what comes your way!

    peace, love and glitter,
    kathy :-)

    It's so weird that you posted this b/c I was actually thinking about your novel the other day and wondering where things were at....I realized I wondered what was going to happen to the 2 main charatcers...I'm so excited to read it now. - Jen

    Yay for you! You're awesome!!

    How hard was it to get a deal for your fiction - do you think having craft books in print helped?

    good for you, Kathy. Despite my righteous output of craft prose, songs, poems, and memoir, the art of fiction lies behind a locked door as far as I'm concerned. I'm in awe. Be sure to post title and pub date so we can all read.

    Congratulations! I have stacks of unfinished novels so this will inspire me to finally finish something and send it off. Good job!
