SOLD!

Hi everyone,
Sorry it's been so long since I posted. I know I say that a lot, but you guys keep checking back and I appreciate that! Big news yesterday from my agent: we sold my book See You Next Time with an option for two more, again to Deb Werksman at Sourcebooks. Here's some info about the book:

See You Next Time
Everybody loves a hero. That's the problem.

Hero pilot Cole Langston is learning to live with—and enjoy—his newfound fame and the rabid female attention that comes with it until a lucky punch knocks some sense into him and opens his eyes to true love.
When his copilot suffers a heart attack in flight, Cole lands the jetliner in a blizzard and revives the stricken captain. Catapulted to national hero status, Cole has more women vying for his attention than he knows what to do with. They all have one thing in common: they try without success to bring this happy-go-lucky pilot down to earth. Then comes an airport altercation, a punch to the face, and the lovely Olivia—a shy, timid artist who does what no other woman has ever managed to do: steal Cole's well-protected heart. With women coming on to him everywhere they go, Olivia struggles to believe that Cole is ready for a committed relationship. His biggest problem is getting rid of all his extra ladies before the only one he wants figures out that she's one of many.

My editor is saying Spring 2011 release, but we're hoping for something sooner so there won't be two years between books. I'll definitely keep you posted!

Hi Marie
That's great news. I so love your writing & I love the premise of this story. But please bump it up LOL. I'll have to reread the other 2 while I wait ;)

Marie Force said...

LOL, Mary, it would be out next month if I had my druthers. We're hearing Spring 11 but hopefully we will see it before then. Thanks so much for the kind words about the first two, and it's such a compliment that you want to read them again!!

I'm very happy for you (and for me too, lol).
Only hope We'll be able to read it sooner ! In the meantime we can always reread your first two (there is no WAY I'm getting tired of Michael *sigh*).

Congrats Marie. That is wonderful news. I hope it does come out sooner. Will have to spend more time with the other two books till then.

I'm so excited for you, Marie! Congratulations! I certainly hope we don't have to wait until 2011, but if that's the case I know it will be worth the wait!

YAY Marie,
I like the Plot Line. And I like that old fashioned name Olivia.
I hope you don't stick in any of those screaming moments again.
Well, I take that back. Put in lots of screaming moments.

Marie Force said...

Thanks, Laurie. I hope it's out before 11, too! I can't believe we're even talking about 2010 and 2011 already!

Donna, I promise you a few scream-worthy moments although nothing quite as good as Juliana going back to Jeremy! :-)
