You know, writers and most everyone in the publishing industry will tell you the end of year holidays are the toughest time to submit because agents and editors are trying to clear their desks and will reject just about everything without really reading. However, my dear friend Christie Craig has just proved this wrong. Here it is, the week of Thanksgiving and she just got a call that not one but FOUR of her completed novels have just sold!
Now this really comes as no surprise to me. I've read Christie's work and we used to critique together. Still do on occasion. From the first sentence I knew the books would sell. She has a tremendous talent and a wonderful sense of humor. (personally, I think she's the secret love child of Nora Roberts and Jenny Cruisie)
So, congratulations Christie! I can't wait to see these on the shelf and say "I know her!"
