YAHOO!!! MORE BOOKS!!!

I'm thrilled to share that I have a new 3-book deal for more Atlantis
books!! Got surprised by the offer last Monday since I hadn't even turned
in a proposal yet; we worked out details during the week and yay!! More
books!! That plus the 2-book urban fantasy contract are going to keep me
pretty busy. I mailed my husband the "Alyssa Day's Trophy Husband" shirt
that my darling Toni McGee Causey made for him, ROFL. He promised to wear
it proudly. Love that man - I would have given up on this career a couple
of years ago without his support, but he believed in me all the way. I told
him I'd buy him a new truck to celebrate,
and Mr. Frugal says, "Nah, but how about a paint job for the one (150K
miles) I already have?"

Anyway, yay!! Thanks for letting me share!

HUGS,
Alyssa, quite dizzy from the roller coaster these past few weeks
PS: Here's a new review for ATLANTIS UMASKED, coming out in only 2 weeks!!

Urban fantasy novels are set in a world very much like ours, but there are supernatural beings (in fact, I"m using the same world I use in my Atlantis stories, so you'll be familiar with much of it!) and the novels follow a central protagonist on her or his journey. Like the Dresden Files (Harry Dresden) and the Southern vampire books (Sookie Stackhouse, the basis of the new TV show True Blood). I'm very excited about it!

Congratulations Alyssa! You are a great writer, you deserve it! I just received my copy of Atlantis Unmasked (gotta love B&N!), can’t wait to start reading!

And I just wanted to say I just received your newsletter and I think it’s wonderful and generous thing that you are giving away so many books! You rock!
