Right This Way, Lady Luck

Deb Dana Has a Surprise Announcement

Last week, when I saw the topic for this week’s post, I thought, “UGH. A secret I can share? Do I have any of those?”

And then I got a call from my agent on Thursday.

What was this call about, you ask? Well, I can’t tell you quite yet, making it the perfect topic for this post. But suffice it to say, our conversation involved books. Specifically, books written by me. Also, a new publisher. And maybe exciting things like…contracts.

Have I piqued your interest? If so, then you may want to follow me on Twitter and/or like me on Facebook, where I will be making an announcement in a matter of days (or, by the time you read this, possibly hours). In the meantime…I’ll let your imagination run wild…

Stay tuned!
