About eighteen months ago, I submitted a book to Ellora's Cave/ Cerridwen Press. And wonder of wonders, it was accepted. I was offered a contract, much to my amazement. It was my first book. Through some scheduling magic, it was released second, after Chrysanthemum, but this is truly my very first book. Dancer's Delight is the first of several books that take place in Mystic Valley. The others--a prequel, Everything Lovers Can Know and Traveller's Refuge and Cherished Destinies are available now from Ellora's Cave. The next in the series, Love Never-Ending is coming soon.
This book was my dream come true. That doesn't mean that I love the other books I've written any less. It just means that you can never repeat the wonder and amazement of the first one again. I'm always excited about a new book contract and release. As a matter of fact next Friday I have a new release, Kama Sutra Lovers. It will be my ninth book released in a little over a year. I can tell you... a writer never reaches a point when that's not exciting. Never. But this was my first one.
