Yup.  I did it.

No matter how many times I say it or see it, I can’t quite wrap my mind around the fact that I’ve sold my novella “In the Light of Day.”  Everything about this project has surprised me.  I didn’t know I was going to write a M/M Romantic Suspense short story until I had finished it.  Heck, it was the first thing I had finished since my teen years, but I didn’t think it was ready for primetime.

I wasn’t exactly wrong about that though.  A friend of mine convinced me to enter a writing contest — my first contest ever — and I edited/rewrote like a fiend, never expecting to get anything beyond a crit.  I about swallowed my tongue when I finaled.  And you do *not* want to hear the words I screamed when I found out I won.  Or the words I screamed as I tried to edit/rewrite the rest of the story to get it up to snuff.

But I guess the swears and tears were worth it.  Because I sold it.  My first finished story, my first contest win, and my first contract all off of the same story.  Part of it was hard work, a lot of it was luck, but I’m going to ride this feeling for LONG time.
