My husband just signed a contract with a New York publisher. I'm so proud of him...just wanted to share. Have a great day!

"Don't leave us hanging!!!  What kind of a book did he write; what's the title going to be so I can keep an eye out for it?  I'm so glad for you and your husband...best of luck.

It's kind of strange. My husband has written for quite a while. He's had plays produced and sold a screenplay, but it was never produced. Most of the stuff he writes is contemporary comedy. For unknown reasons, he decided to write a western book. He liked the old western tv shows, but didn't read westerns. Anyway, he sent his western manuscript to a friend, who sent it to a publisher at Kensington and in less than a week , they said they wanted to publish it. One of the reasons they wanted it was because it was extendable and they've told him to go ahead and start on a second one. The name of the book, unless the publisher changes it, is Rattler.

Thanks for the interest. I'll keep you posted.
