Double great news today! One: Bluest Heart, the sequel to my published western novella Blackest Heart with the Wayback series at TWRP, is contracted for publication! Yippee! Oh, but wait. There's more. Blackest Heart is also contracted to go into print in an anthology with Marguerite Arotin's Return of the Prodigal Daughter and Abbey MacInnis's Delighting Miss Daisy. I had no idea when I wrote Blackest Heart for the Wayback line or when I first contracted it with TWRP's Yellow Rose editor that it would go this far so this is really wonderful news. A title hasn't been decided on the anthology yet and covers for both the anthology and Bluest Heart, which if tradition holds are both in artist Tamra Westberry's very capable hands, are still forthcoming. I can't wait to see them since Tamra did an amazing job on both Blackest Heart and A Summer's Hope.
For those who have read Blackest Heart, Bluest Heart is the story of Stella's brother, Casey. I'm going to be sneaky and not reveal the heroine until I post the cover and official blurb (hopefully soon) but she did play a small part in Blackest Heart. See if you can guess who ;)
