7 Books Sold Since Lasted I Posted

I've been a bad girl (you'd think that would be the lead for my other blog). I've sold 7 books in the last three weeks, and failed to tell you about the sales.

To my utter amazement, these last three weeks have been extremely busy around here (and one of them I was on vacation), so I am hoping that this is a sign of the turn around for publishing.

I sold two horror novels at the beginning of the three week cycle, another horror anthology a week ago Friday, two reprints for Ravenous Romance (see details at and two erotica titles last Tuesday. This is what being a literary agent should be like!

This year, BEA was subdued. Many of the publishers either declined to show in booths (Kensington, F&W, Rodale) or reduced their presence. But everyone there was there to do business, so it was the best BEA I've ever been to. I am quite sure that I made a sale or two in pitches in meetings, and the RR business I was able to do was amazing. It's truly interesting to go to BEA as both an agent and an editor.

The Physics of Vampires

I love Facebook. People who are as strange as you find you, so one of my "friends,"Rae Lori, whom I have never met, linked to this fascinating article.

Did I ever mention that I love vampire novels? That I've sold at least 200 of them?

And right now, it's vampire week at, where the vampire novel of the day is 20% off. We have 5 vampire series.
