THE CALL!

...Actually--the email!!!

I accepted an offer from Siren/Bookstrand last Friday for publication of my contemporary romance, "Who's Been Sleeping in My Bed." It'll be published in ebook format in Summer of 2008 and print format in early 2009.

"Who's" is the second novel I've completed. It was also a 2004 Golden Gateway finalist--if anyone remembers that far back.

I hadn't submitted anything in three years and had just gotten back into writing. On a whim, I dusted off "Who's" and submitted it last October to a popular epublisher. I got a request for a full and sent it out.

In December, I still hadn't heard and decided to send to a few other places. Since it takes so long to hear anything, I thought I'd have a few in the queue. I sent a full (what they require) to Bookstrand on a Monday, the week before Christmas. They are a sister company of Siren Publishing. Siren is a erotic romance publisher. Bookstrand is opening their doors in June as a publisher of mainstream romance and fiction. ByWed. morning, I had an offer. I accepted the offer last Friday.

I am very excited to be a part of Siren/Bookstrand. They are the company that bought all the Triskelion contracts and returned them to the authors. Everyone I've contacted speaks very highly of them.

What a way to start the new year!!!!! YIPPEEEEEE!!!!

YAYYY!!!! I can't wait to read Who's! I agree, Siren has a top-notch reputation. This is just the beginning. Enjoy the ride! Better yet, put the top down and crank up the tunes, we can cruise this road together!

Congratulations, Jami!
I just accepted an offer from BookStrand to publish my mainstream
romantic suspense novel, "The Twist." A story of mind-bending control
and unnerving metamorphosis, "The Twist" unravels the tale of a hotshot
consultant as he struggles to foil a plot to steal $12 million and to
rescue the feisty, female scientist who has stolen his heart. I am
excited to be part of Siren's new sister company and am confident that
BookStrand's broader product line will be an excellent fit for the
successful
release of my book. ""The Twist" is scheduled for publication in August
2008.
