I signed my Harlequin Contract!!!!

I'd meant to post more pics from the writers retreat, or even some of the fabulous photos my pal Tawny sent me of Matthew McConaughey surfing, but my Harlequin contract came today. So, what you see above is me signing the piece of paper that represents a 20+ years dream. I had to sign in triplicate so the below picture is also of me signing!!! How freaking cool is that?????
I pinch myself and just can't believe it's really happened. If you've ever wondered if dreams really can come true if you work hard and never give up---THEY CAN. THEY REALLY REALLY REALLY CAN. :)
And if signing my contract wasn't enough--I got the title & release date of my second book today! THE HEART SURGEON'S SECRET SON, February 2008. Yea!!!

Tawny thinks it's such a great day for me to sign because now I'll never forget her birthday. ;)

Congratulations! Don't forget to make a copy of the contract to frame on the wall!

I also like the photo with you and your kids -- it's a great example to them to work hard and never give up.

Janice, you look beautiful and so happy. I'm so thrilled for you, seeing you sign gives me goose-pimples (which doesn't sound flattering, does it)

I am so happy for you! Next, we'll be seeing photos of you advising Matthew on how to play lead in the upcoming film based on your book! Giving Matthew McConaughey directions? Just yet another fabulous dream. And as you say,YES,DREAMS really DO come true!


Your biggest achievement ever though are those four gorgeous kids --- you can just see the pride and excitement in their faces!

You go, girl!

Thanks for all the awesome comments, guys!

I do love the pic with my kids. They're what life's all about and I'm very blessed to have four great kids.
And I'm not just saying that because my oldest son wants to be an actor and says he'll make sure I get to meet Matthew some day. ;)
