Class Act Books bought Jodi's Journey

Historical Fiction
I've just been contracted through Class Act Books for Jodi's Journey!

After a long search, I finally found a home for Jodi's Journey.  Class Act Books has contracted it.


Jodi's Journey is no ordinary story. It's a historical westsern romance, yes, but it differs in the history behind the writing.  When I lost my husband back in 2006 I found I could no longer write romance. I tried, but it wasn't any good.  I prayed and then one happened.


I took a vacation with my grandkids to San Antonio.  I went to the store there on the Alamo lot.  I bought several items, including a research book that I planned to try to use.  When I got home I realized they hadn't charged me for that book.  It was like a sign.  I was meant to use this book and to go on with my writing.  In three months I had read and reread the research book and also written Jodi's Journey.  In three months.  True, I had had the idea for the book for a long time and worked it out in my head.  But I hadn't written it.  But I finished it.  I actually finished it.


Then I went from publisher to publisher looking for a home for Jodi's Journey, knowing this book had so much potential, I wasn't going to give up.  Finally, I took it to Class Act Books.  And three months later I had a contract.


This has just happened.  So it's news. 


But to me it's finding a home for my baby!  Glad to be back into the writing world.


Love and blessings
