So, I'm beyond excited that this happened!
Yes, my novel Five Winters is to be published by Lake Union Publishing in November! I can't wait. It's to be published under the pen name of Kitty Johnson - which was what I would have called my son, had he been a girl - because I've had a lot of others types of writing published. Using a pen name will help not to confuse the algorithms.
I started this novel last April and finished the second draft in September. It's the book I've wanted to write for years, made up of bits and pieces that have floated around in my brain and finally found a way to come together. It practically wrote itself!
What this space for more news. I'm really looking forward to seeing the cover once it exists!
