Here’s a more recent picture of Hunter-he’s such a cutie! he has the same problem as me when he’s in a photo-our big googly eyes can sometimes appear a little too googly. I’m seriously thinking of putting a photo of me up on this blog but maybe I’ll pretend I’m the dog for a bit longer-cos who could resist that face?

As I appear to be the only person who hasn’t blogged about this-can I tell you that I was offered a 2 book contract for my erotic Regencies by John Scognamiglio at Kensington Aphrodisia? He made an offer 24 hours after receiving the proposal from my oh so awesome agent Deidre Knight. Gotta love a woman who can get you an NY publishing contract first time out of the starting blocks!

Of course being as this is publishing, the opportunities for self doubt and imaginative thinking are endless-(authors are like that you know). Verbal contracts can take a while to become paper contracts or real books so I’m not expecting to see anything concrete until 2008.Can’t wait to lick the covers…

But I’m seriously delighted to have been offered this opportunity by Kensington. They really are envelope-pushers and I think my new books will fit there very well. In case anyone is worried-I’ll still be writing the futuristics for Ellora’s Cave. After all I have 3 strapping intergalactic vikings to find partners for!

    I have to say, that is just about the cutest dog I’ve ever seen.

    And more congrats from me, as well — I was wondering if you’d ever get around to posting your news here. 😀 You’ll forgive me if I don’t lick my copies…? (Okay, I’ll lick if the cover is hot enough.)

    He’s adorable!

    Kate, I’m still just so thrilled for you — not just for the Kensington deal, but also for your other sales. You’re really on fire right now! Enjoy the ride (and give yourself a break once in awhile from the hard work). 🙂
