Great News!

So many exciting things have been happening around Casa SP lately. I've saved them all up to share all at once.

First, I found out that my book, WHAT LIES BENEATH got an incredible review from Romantic Times Magazine. I got 4 1/2 stars and a Top Pick! On my first book. That's just nuts. Here's some of what the reviewer had to say... "Laurence hits all the high points in her debut - romance, intrigue, evolution, passion and discover - and elevates them to new heights... She could easily become a fan favorite." It's kinda weird to have myself referred to by my last name. But they're saying great things, so I'll get over it.

Then, my editor contracted with me for the first two books of my new 4 book series for Desire. The mini-series will be getting a name, I'm not sure what, yet, but the first book will be out in January 2013. And I'm super duper thrilled to say that the second book in the series will feature a tortured, virgin hero! Everyone, including my agent, thought for sure they'd want me to take that out, but my editor actually said she loved Brody and that my "virgin hero won her over." Huzzah! I'm so excited.

Next, I got my nifty new trading cards. They're super cool. If you'd like one, email me your snail mail info to: author (at) andrealaurence (d0t) com. Please let me know if I can add your information to my new newsletter mailing list as well. I like to crack twenty people. :)

I was hoping that I would also get to say that I got my books. Instigator got her April books last week, but so far, no luck for me. :( In the meantime, I'm stalking the UPS man.

So many exciting things going on! And its only February. So far, its turning out to be a pretty great year. :) How's your year going so far? Anything exciting?

I should have qualified that statement. My writing career is doing awesome. Got even more awesome today. The other stuff in my life... well... hopefully I'll be too busy to worry about it much.

My year has been good so far, no complaints! Still continuing to get my home in order and just blessed as I actually got a dvd slideshow of my son and his bride - from their wedding last July.

Yay, SP!!! You are moving at the speed of a freight train! Good things are sprouting up everywhere.

So far this year I'm surviving. :) My life is simply an attempt to impose control on the chaos.
