I’m thrilled to announce that my debut novel, Bound to the Highlander, will be published with Tirgearr Publishing. James and Aileana’s story will finally be told. 😀
Cover your ears.
Wait for it…
WOOOOOOOOHOOOOOOOOOOOO! YES! AWESOMENESS! DO DO DO DO DO HEY! DO DO DO DO DO HA! SQUEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!
Ok, I’m done. You can take your hands off your ears now.
It’s been five years since I typed the first words of this story and I’ve gone from ‘it’s awesome’ to ‘what the heck was I thinking’ sometimes in the same hour. Overall, I’ve always believed I had a good story and just needed to learn the craft to ensure the book was told in the best possible way.
So about twelve rewrites, several workshops, shelves of resource material, and some amazing new friends later, I’m finally here. Man does this ever feel good! It’s so easy to doubt yourself, especially when you’re given critique which challenges the fundamental elements in the story. But if you beleive in it, and you know your genre, you have to lick your wounds, dust yourself off, and get right back at it. It also helps to have an incredible posse of support around you. I’m one lucky chickie.
Here’s some information about my publisher from Tirgearr’s website. I can’t say it any better than they can. I’m thrilled for the opportunity to work with them. 🙂

So this weekend is all about basking. A pause if you will, to look back at the last five years and say, yep, I’m glad I kept going. You might want to cover your ears if you’re in the general vicinity of St. John’s, NL.
Wait for it…
