Hi all,

I just found out yesterday that I've been offered a contract on another book- this one is the first I wrote, a fantasy, that a few of you have read. It's called The Assassin of Nara. Here's the announcement from the publisher.

Wow- I think I just became a real author! :-)

What did you buy Helen in celebration? I saw an interview with Stephen King once and he said he was so excited and wanted to buy his wife something and it was late at night so walked to the neighborhood drug store and bought her a hair blow dryer. LOL
