A Week to Celebrate (Tara Taylor Quinn)

Pretty much anyone who knows me knows how much I love Superromance. I am deeply committed to these books as I know, through my own experience, how they gently enter a woman's heart, show her strength she doesn't know she has, give her hope when she's lost it, warm her when she's cold, and provide companionship when she's lonely. I've been contracted, non-stop, with the Harlequin Superromance line since 1992. And so you can probably feel a hint of the thrill I am feeling today as I announce that I have just accepted a 10 book deal with Harlequin and that that deal includes several more Superromance books!
This was part of my celebration. My husband told me he'd take me wherever I wanted to go for dinner. I wanted very specific things - and one of them was to not have to sit in a restaurant with a bunch of other people, wait to be waited on, and have TV's on. I wanted the best steak. Great bread. Champagne. He took me to a butcher shop here in town. Had me pick out the steak. On to the grocery to choose my champagne. My bread. He threw in a suggestion for this broccoli cranberry salad we found at the deli last week that is phenomenal. I added a spooky cupcake because, after all, this is Halloween week. He cooked the steak to perfection. Added in some steak fries - I am a closet French Fry lover - and we sat out back in our garden oasis with the fountain going.

I suppose I could be stressed that I now have to write the ten books. I am not. At all. I am a writer. I will be writing regardless of the business end of things. I cannot wait to get started! In addition to Sueprromance I am also adding Special Edition to my writing homes. We don't have stories yet, for any of these books, but in discussion yesterday I think we pretty much decided that there will be at least one more Where Secrets Are Safe books - most likely more than one.

For today, if you'd like to join me in my week of partying, we're having a huge party and a ton of giveaways over on Facebook at the Let's Give Thanks Release Party today, Thursday, from 1:30 - 4 EDT, but you can also visit later and comment for chances to win!!
