Just wanted to tell you all since I finally got said contract in my hot little hands, Total-E-Bound contracted the follow-up to Learning How to Bend, entitled, Must Be Doing Something Right. This is the story of Courteney and Nate (who shows up in LHTB). I got a tentative release date of late June.
I also sent in my farmer (now 40k) for resubmission and vampire (42k) is currently with and editor under first consideration.
Wish me luck.
