Monday Mayhem – My favorite word – YES!

Posted on Aug 18, 2014 by Margaret Ethridge   5 Comments | Posted in Uncategorized

Today marks the four year anniversary of the first time a publisher used my favorite word — yes.

Four years ago today, Kim Jacobs from Turquoise Morning Press sent me an email that included the following magical sentences, “I would like to offer you a contract for your book, Paramour. I love your writing style and the story is priceless.”


Since that day, I’ve contracted six novels, sixteen novellas, and more than a dozen short stories. Let me tell you, having someone tell you they love your story never gets old.

This writing thing has been a hell of a roller coaster ride so far, and I can’t wait to see what’s around the next bend. Thanks so much for coming on this ride with me. Your support and enthusiasm makes every moment of it a thrill!

    That Kim Jacobs is one smart cookie. And let me echo Jewels — I love your stories, too. Every single one!
