From Imagination To Publication

Exciting Announcement Tomorrow!

The Southern California Writers Conference in Newport Beach was as productive as the San Diego conference. This time it was because I got to sit down with my publisher for almost four hours discussing all the juicy details about my book (the kind of details that make me squirm with anticipation). Is it February yet?

I pretty much cornered Matt Pizzo, the CEO of ZOVA Books, and interrogated him about what was to come. In the process I came to understand why he is CEO...he wasn't wearing his cape, but he should have been. He's a publishing superhero.

We made some big decisions, designed the cover, and talked formatting, timeline for ARCs, and international publishing. I know, right?! This is really happening.

I can't share most of what we discussed yet, but we did make one decision that I will be announcing tomorrow. It's finally time for the fun part! Okay so maybe this whole process has been "the fun part." I guess I should say the SUPER fun part.

Stay tuned....


  1. Can't wait for the announcement! :D

  2. Hooray! So glad you are having a great time. :)

  3. Can't wait to hear the big announcement. This is all very exciting to read about and I'm looking forward to reading your novel. BTW, I mentioned you for an award over on my blog:

    Have a great week and I will check back tomorrow!

  8. SO cool! I'm super excited for you and can't believe I didn't see you all weekend. Oh, wait. You were squirreled away with your publisher!

  9. Hi Jessica,

    I'm laughing because Tameri has the exact same comment as me... I can't believe I didn't run into you (or her!) at SCWC... but you sure do have an EXCELLENT reason for not being around!! Congrats, and get 'er done:)
