Cautiously Optimistic about more Heart Books

Dear folk,

I met with my Berkley editor (Heart books) yesterday and my agent. My editor says she liked the 2 book proposal and the tentative date to turn in Heart Change is end of February for publication later next year. I know this is moving the books later, but I need the time ;), and maybe I can turn it in early! A new subplot came to me in the wee hours of the am, so I am very pleased.

We also talked about the Light Urban Fantasy Romance series (both editor and agent) and Berkley will probably get first shot at this. Still considering whether it will be a romance or slanted more to fantasy with heavy romantic subplot. If romance, my agent wants it to be hotter.

That's the news, but not all of it! I'm going to take off to Grace Cathedral shortly.

Thanks for all your support (oh, did NOT win National Readers Choice award).

Take care,
Robin

Yay on the two books! Pfui on the Reader's Choice award--obviously, they didn't ask the right readers. :-)

Yay on more Heart books! Curious about the Urban Fantasy as long as you keep them light. I'm getting very tired of all the dark urban fantasy out there. On the other hand I'll check out your stuff no matter what.

Yayyyy!!!! Can't wait for the Heart books!

I agree about urban fantasies . . . I haven't read much of these because I just can't get into those vampires and werewolf stories. If it's light with a good story line and character development, I might consider these.
