The Cover Quote That Made Me Cry #HardAsItGets

Get at Amazon | B&N | iTunes
Have you ever received such amazingly good news that for a moment your brain stopped functioning? And, then, as the news you never seriously expected to receive sinks in, you are utterly incapable of doing anything but bursting out crying no matter the fact that you're in a room packed full of authors, editors, and staff from your publishing company in the middle of a workshop presentation? And, then, the efforts to restrain the crying erupt into sorta grunty-sob-like noises that are utterly embarrassing but you can't even care because YOU JUST GOT FREAKING AMAZING NEWS?

Yeah. That's what just happened to me.

And why?

Because I just got a cover quote for my contemporary romance Hard As It Gets (Hard Ink #1) that releases November 26. From my absolute favorite author. Ever. Like, ever and ever.


J.R. Ward.


!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Yup. Gasp! Flail! Twitch! Sob!

Here it is:


“Edgy, sexy and full of suspense!  A great read from a great new author!”

Holy. Freaking. Dream-Come-True. Crap!

You guys!

I mean, you all KNOW my BDB craziness. And now the Warden has not only read but liked my book. THUD. Stick a fork in me I. Am. Done.

So, yeah. That's all I got!

Thanks for stopping by for my meltdown! LOL
