Good News Galore!

This week at Word Wranglers we've been bursting with good news. Here's mine:

You may have noticed that my blog went up way later than usual. I haven't had a spare second in days to write. I've spent the last few days with family that I haven't seen in years. Some of them, I've never met.  The reason we came together was for a sad occasion. There was a death in the family. But we had a fabulous time together, getting to know each other all over again. We all exchanged stories about my grandma. As one person put it, she was a person that would tell you where to go and how to get there.

Just found out yesterday that a fifth grandchild is on the way. Holy smokes! Five. My daughters seem to be taking turns having babies. And it's another boy. Poor Jullian! The only girl in the bunch. She's in the picture above.

My latest story sold! Handling contract and cover questionnaire for Ella Ever After. Being published by Red Sage Publishing. As soon as I get a release date I'll let you know. Ella was a secondary character in Life After an tried to steal the show. I promised to tell her story, and now I have. She was a little hard to deal with, but I came to love her spunk.


  1. I'm so sorry about your grandmother, Shawn! But so glad your family was able to celebrate her life together!

    And yay for good news - new contract *and* a new grandchild - woohoo!!

  2. Congrats, Shawn! SO happy for you!
    Julian is a beautiful little girl!

  3. I'm so happy for you on all counts! Sorry about your grandma but glad for the family time.

  4. Congrats, Shawn! How exciting. When my dad passed a few years ago, one of the benefits was catching up with my cousin--who I didn't even recognize when he walked in the door--and other good friends that had faded into the memory clouds. Glad you got to remember you grandmother with people you love.

  5. Hey There. I found your blog using msn. This is an
    extremely well written article. I'll make sure to bookmark it and return to read more of your useful info. Thanks for the post. I will definitely comeback.
