My first book contract! Whoo hoo!

I've got a book contract. I've got a temporary cover. So what do you think about my soon-to-be-published YA book? It's guaranteed to be edgy or it wouldn't be written by me, ha! I'll post again when I get the permanent cover done. Meanwhile isn't this one pretty? My friend Bonnie put the title on the picture of the young woman who is my friend's daughter and the inspiration for my character Annie.

(temporary cover)

It's Not About Me
by Michelle Sutton

August 2008

Annie has it all. She's attractive, graduated with honors, was accepted at the college of her choice, has supportive parents, good friends, and a steady boyfriend who loves her. One night when an unexpected visitor appears, Annie's world is destroyed as she once knew it. As she tries to recover the pieces of her broken life, a war ensues between two brothers who both claim to have her best interests at heart. But who will Annie choose? Or will she decide to turn her life in a different direction?

As you know, I am just plain THRILLED! Have you decided on which cover to go with? Did you say you know the girl who's posing as the model on your book? Seems like you said it was a friend's daughter.

It's been awhile since I've had the chance to stop by this "blog". I'm always over at Shoutlife. I have little time for anything these days, but write. I need to write no less than 1K to 1.5K words a day. Sometimes it's like dragging a tired old, stubborn mule down a bumpy road to eke out those words, but slowly they're coming. I'm up to 33K+, but need to write faster. And then CHRISTMAS IS COMING! Yikes Bikes. But--God is Good, and I know He's going to continue to fill my head with ideas--and keep my fingers moving on these keys.

Love you, Shelle-Belle!
