Way Back Wednesday!

Welcome to this week's edition of Way Back Wednesday! Today I have a special treat for you! Read on to find out more.....

Happy Anniversary!
It is one year ago that my very first book, Her Highland Champion, hit the cyber shelves! Happy Anniversary to me, Malcolm and Heather!!!

It's been an amazing year, with a lot of twists and turns. Since that first book, I've seen 2 more novellas come out, a print version with all 3 and I've signed another contract with Decadent Publishing for their new Tease line. At the moment, I also have ANOTHER submission in with Decadent, a full-length romantic suspense submission with two other epublishers, and I'm working on a brand new Honor Guard story.

I haven't reread Her Highland Champion since it came out, but I'm thinking I might. I still love that story for so many reasons. It was my first published book, of course, but it was also my very first suspense story. It is set in my favorite place in all the world, a fictional version of Glenfinnan, Scotland. It has some wonderful characters who have lived inside my head for over 14 years. It began my International Protective Network series of stories and some of the secondary characters have found their way into other short stories Decadent Publishing and I will be bringing you later this year.

What's next?
In the next year, I hope to sell more copies of this heart-warming contemporary Scottish romantic suspense. I hope to work more on my International Protective Network, to discover more aspects of the exciting fictional business. I've got several more employees to write about, with more sexy heroes, feisty heroines and intriguing international settings. And of course, there will be suspense!

How about a contest?
To celebrate my one year anniversary as an officially published author, I'll be giving away a signed copy of my print book, Through the Eyes of Darkness. Her Highland Champion is in there along with my other 2 ebooks from 2012. Plus, I'll throw in some other UK treats!

  2. Happy Anniversary, Lexi! Onward and upward...

    This year I accomplished coming home by driving from Alaska to Austin, TX....and (finally) making the commitment to write up my sci-fi stories.

  3. Congratulations Alexa! I've accomplished some pretty great things so far. I've gotten 3 new contracts for short stories, and once I finish the follow ups in the two series I've promised the pubs I'll have 5 more.
