Exciting News

Just wanted to share that last week I landed a contract to write a book for a $1,000,000.00 advance! Can you believe it?

Also, my own personal publicist for one of my other books just booked me and my family to take an All-Around-the-World cruise as a promotional tour! Isn’t that amazing?

And on top of all that, my middle grade novel that’s currently in production just sold film rights to Disney!

Okay, okay, maybe it is April Fool’s today. And maybe I just love April Fool’s jokes. My favorite one is where I frantically tell my husband that my car broke down and was smoking out of the engine and he runs out and lifts the hood of the car only to find a big note that says “April Fool’s”! I’ve played that one so many times it doesn’t work at our house any more, but maybe you could try it!

So how about a fun laugh today. Tell one of your friends or family members that YOU’RE getting a one million dollar advance for that book you’ve been telling them about. After their incredulous surprise say, “April Fool’s!” Enjoy a few laughs together.


  1. Oh, if you had said $100,000.00 I’d have bought it!

    My all time favorite April Fool’s day prank happened in High School. Someone saw to it that two real donkeys were brought in. Each had a sign hanging from it’s neck that said PRINCIPAL and VICE-PRINCIPAL. The real officials cooperated, and the animals were placed in their respective offices, while the principal and his VP took another office.
    I’ll never forget the experession on the first kid’s face who was “sent to the office” and came back.

  2. Oooh, Mirka, that is too funny! Ha ha! (or should I say hee-haw!) -Nancy

  3. You had me going! But then, I’m hopelessly gullible.

    Happy April!

  4. Isn’t it great to have fun, Doraine? -Nancy
