After a long time spent sitting on my hands, I’m delighted to announce that my novella, Love at Last Sight, has been accepted for publication in one of the annual holiday anthologies compiled by Carina Press!

This novella, about a wounded infantry officer returning home to Kansas and the woman he left behind there, was my NaNoWriMo project for November 2012. I absolutely fell in love with the characters and the words have never flowed more easily, so I felt extra sensitive about sending this manuscript out into the big bad world to face potential rejection. When I received my acceptance e-mail from the Executive Editor, I actually cried with happiness that my hero and heroine, Chris and Beth, had found their home. I can’t wait to share them with readers, who I hope will be swept up by their story just as thoroughly as I was.

In the meantime, you can read Angela James’s announcement here. Yes, that’s my name!
