I SOLD!!!!!!!

A three-book deal to NAL for my new mystery series!!! I'm over the moon with excitement and joy!! Here's the Publishers Marketplace announcement:

Fiction: Mystery/Crime – Kate Carlisle's HOMICIDE IN HARDCOVER: A Bibliophile Mystery, a cursed copy of Goethe's Faust leads a rare book restorer into a murder investigation that only she can solve -- with the help of clues she uncovers in a valuable first edition, and three other books in the series, to Kristen Weber at NAL, by Kelly Harms and Christina Hogrebe at Jane Rotrosen Agency (world English).

Sounds very exciting, doesn't it? It's going to be so much fun!

And I'm doubly thrilled and honored because my fabulous friends sent me so many wonderful goodies!

Look at this adorable fuzzy bear from Susan Mallery, along with a gorgeous congratulatory cake ...











And beautiful flowers from Maureen Child. And yes, they ARE in an oversized martini glass. I don't know why she thought that would be appropriate for me. *g*




More flowers from my darling husband ...






Champagne, of course, from my brother and sister-in-law, Jim and Jane ...

And so many good wishes and treats from family and friends all over the world, I can't thank everybody enough! I'll be back to share some more details this week.


It's a good week to be Kate!!

Cheers!
