I THINK I just sold my second m/f. A bit of confusion right now (I was contacted by the book editor, but have not yet heard from the person in charge of acquisitions), and no contracts yet, but... tentatively... YAY!

The book editor had a lot of excellent ideas for improving the story, so I really hope to be working with her. (But if not - I can still use her ideas! Mwahaahaa!)

I just sold another short to the Mammoth series (futuristic.) Now I just need to write it by May 1st...

I'm also very pleased to announce that I was accepted for a Soapbox essay in the March 2nd edition of Publishers Weekly! (It might still be locked unless you're a current subscriber.) No pay that I know of, but a very respected publication. It's a rant that's bugged me for some time. Hopefully, it'll help authors everywhere.

I have short stories and a novella published but I sold my first full length novel to Samhain publishing! I had three great publishers interested and had to choose! It's a fantasy menage romance called Wicked Wonderland and it has an ebook release date of December 4th 2012 with trade paper back to follow.
