Life has been really good lately! First off. . .a year ago you know I went through a total kitchen remodel and it was BEAUTIFUL!
(This is me and oldest twin in our old kitchen)
I was driving in one of my FIVE carpools to school and there was a house for sale. Yep, we bought it, moved, and a year later....another kitchen remodel!

As you can see, I went with a much lighter kitchen with stainless steel, butcher block and bamboo elements. It's totally gorg! I will show you a pic when it's all said and done....
BUT THAT IS NOW MY EARLY CHRISTMAS GIFT!
After three years of learning the in's and out's of self publishing, I decided it was time to do the HYBRID thing. What is that? Most of you readers don't know the term and probably don't care.
Here is the deal.
A hybrid author is someone who self publishes and traditionally publishes with a publisher. Yes. I am in Barnes and Noble because I made my own deal as a self published author, which is pretty much unheard of. Remember I DON'T TAKE NO FOR AN ANSWER!
But what about film rights and foreign rights? Yes. I have been approached by several foreign rights publishers but I don't have time to focus on understanding all of that or I would never get all those books out to you *wink*.
So....I signed with an agent to help broker those deals and I couldn't be more happy. And yes, I will write some novels to be published traditionally.
What does this mean to you, my readers?
Really not a big change in how much books I put out a year because I will still be self publishing my series and traditionally publishing some new series. I'm still traveling all over, just like I always have, hosting my street team parties and hanging with y'all! Which reminds me...have you checked out my website for all of my 2014 events yet?? I'm traveling, traveling, traveling and hoping to meet you soon!!
