Good News

Coming soon, to an e-reader near you: A story of a determined woman who will stop at nothing until everyone she loves is safe. A damaged man who will carry his secrets to his grave. A forbidden passion that is doomed to fail. Can they get a HEA after all?

Intimate Healing (contemporary romance) is under contract. Actually, it’s been under contract for a little while now but I was too afraid to speak. I figured I will wait until I have more to share (like a cover and release date), however, that could take up to a year. I can’t sit on my good news for that long!

The publisher is Sapphire Blue Publishing. They are a very small publisher but I did check out the reviews of their books and those seem to be good. Although I haven’t read anything they have released, I talked (e-mailed actually) some of their author’s who are very happy with them.

My biggest fear at the moment is the contract being canceled before “Intimate Healing” could see light. Yicks! That would be a real nightmare.

Whatever news I have coming, I will try to keep everyone posted. I don’t expect to hear from SBP until after the holidays if not later.

In other news, I have finally made a goodreads account. Here is a link to my page:


You may notice that my name is different on it. Well, that’s because I’m publishing under the name Angelina Rain instead of my real name. Why? Well, I do have a great story to tell about that, but I need blog tour material, so I guess you’ll have to wait. Speaking of blog tours, who wants me on their blog when the book comes out?

And now, for the best part, I’m opening up a virtual bar so sit back, get a drink and a chocolate cupcake, and celebrate with me.
