All you need is one yes to send you on your way

Here's the online link to my article in the January 2006 issue of Writer's Digest on getting Pen on Fire published.

Hi Barbara, I saw you speak at a Writer's Conference in San Diego (I think it was last year), and I wanted to share with you a great story that relates to your article about only needing one yes. I had a one-on-one with an editor at the conference, and she liked my work! She asked for the whole manuscript, and the long and short of it is that I got a 2-book deal from Berkley Jam, an imprint of Penguin. I am so excited, and the process has been amazing. It's a story you just think never really happens to anyone, but it did happen to me. My first novel, QUEEN GEEK SOCIAL CLUB, has a publishing date of September 5! I'm so excited to write that! Thanks for the inspiration.
