P is for Proud!

…Did you panic, A-Z friends? *Grins* Don’t worry. Today isn’t “P”; it’s “H”. I just needed a title to express today’s sentiments, and that fit perfectly. Why? Well, you might want to make like the Easter bunny and hightail it over to Lisa L.Regan’s blog first. 

Go ahead. I’ll wait.

♫ I’m waitin’… drinkin’ my green tea… singin’ to myself… ♫
(That’s exactly what I did. See? I told you I’m worse in person.)

So, did you read the news?

Lisa, my rock star critique partner, just signed a book deal with Sapphire Star Publishing! *The crowd goes wild!*

Wondering where you’ve heard about SSP recently? I’d venture to say it was Nancy S. Thompson’s announcement last month. (Another one of my critters!) How awesome is that? I love these two to death, so please join me in congratulating them.

Cue the confetti cannons! :D

You could have done 'H' for 'Happy'! It is great news, and Lisa is certainly deserving.

Carrie Butler said...

Yay, indeed! :)

Carrie Butler said...

I guess I'm just mischievous, Jeff. *Grins* Absolutely!

Whoo-hoo! Congrats to Lisa! That is awesome news. Very excited for her!

That is so very awesome! I just went and congratulated her. How cool is that to have the same publisher as your writing bff? I'm so happy for her!

Carrie Butler said...

You see right through me, Melissa. Haha!

Carrie Butler said...

Heck yeah! :)

Carrie Butler said...

I thought the same thing! :D

Joylene said...

I think it's wonderful that you're sharing your friends' exciting news. It is thrilling. They are now members of the club. It feels weird at first, until reality sets in. Then they'll wake up one day and think, "Wow, now I understand what everyone was talking about!"

Never to be the same again. LOL. What a glorious event.

Donna K. Weaver said...

That's big, big news indeed!

Lisa Regan said...

Thank you so much! Can't believe I didn't see this yesterday. I could never have survived submissions without the support and humor of all my fellow writers, especially you. Your talent inspires me and makes me want to be a better writer!

Thanks, Joylene! Hey, when you guys go to your "club" meetings, can someone sneak me out a cookie? *Grins*

Carrie Butler said...

Absolutely!

Carrie Butler said...

You're welcome! Gee, I don't know why. It's not like you were busy with a HUGE ANNOUNCEMENT or anything... ;)

Aww, thanks! Congratulations, again. :D *Hugs*

Carrie Butler said...

Thanks for stopping by, icedgurl! :)

Carrie Butler said...

I agree! :D

The Golden Eagle said...

. . . I'm ashamed to say I hadn't heard the news yet. Thanks for letting me know--just went over and congratulated her! :)

(And, as an A-Z Challenge participant, don't do that. We're all nervous as it is! LOL.)

Carrie Butler said...

Better late than never, right? :) Oops! Sorry about that, Eagle. I will behave now... *grins*

David P. King said...

How awesome is that! Congratulations, CP!

I've heard awesome things about this publisher. I'd better go check them out. :)

Carrie Butler said...

Me? Technical? Never! ;) Thanks for stopping by, Becky!

Nancy Thompson said...

I'm so late to the party! This A to Z is killing me. Anyway, only you & JeffO could really know how happy I am for Lisa. She's worked so hard & waited so long. I am so proud of her! And to think we'll be pub sisters!!! It is simply the best of all scenarios!!!

Natasha Hanova said...

Congrats on your hard work coming to fruition, Nancy and Lisa! Way to support fellow writers Carrie.

Carrie Butler said...

How fasionable of you. ;)

Oh, absolutely. It worked out perfectly! :D

Carrie Butler said...

Oh, I love supporting fellow writers, Natasha! I think it's one of the most important things we can do with social media. :)

Melissa Sugar said...

Congratulation to her, how exciting. And yes, I did sort of panic when I saw the letter, P. I was like, damn, how did I fall behind?

Carrie Butler said...

Exciting, indeed! Sorry about the panic. I'll try to behave until May. :)

cleemckenzie said...

So wonderful. Congratulations.

Carrie Butler said...

Yes, very wonderful. Thanks for stopping by, Lee! :)
