News That's 10 Years in the Making!

We are so pleased to announce that our friend and critique partner, Jessica Dotta, has signed her historical trilogy with Tyndale House Publishers!

Having read it, I can honestly say, it's one of my all time favorites. I can't speak highly enough of this Austin meets Bronte epic. Estimated release mid-2013.

CONGRATULATIONS Jessica!!!

Ane Mulligan said...

And I ADORE Lady Foxmore and Mrs. Windham! Talk about eccentric characters!

Nicole said...

Mucho congratulations, Jessica. Way to hang in there.

Gina Holmes said...

You forgot Nancy, Ane :)

Ane Mulligan said...

No, I didn't forget her, but Foxy and Windy crack me up. Nancy's a favorite character, actually. She's a stabilizing force for Julia, and eccentric in her own way, but Windy and Foxy are just so memorable. I guess ll of her characters really are. Poor Edward, we kind of leave him out, huh? LOL Yet he's a quiet constant for her, too.

Y'know, I can't wait for the rest of the world to know these characters like we do. :o)

Congratulations Jessica! Your perseverance should be an example for everyone. I still have the proposal for this trilogy that we shopped in 2005...to no avail. And yet you did NOT give up. Well done.
