I've finally stopped hyperventilating...

And now I can tell you that not only did Strange Neighbors get a fantastic write up in Publisher's Weekly, but it also caught the eye of a Hollywood producer!

Now you see why I thought I was going to pass out.

Here's the awesome review:
“The good-natured fun never stops. Chase (Vampire Vintage) brings on plenty of laughs along with steamy sex scenes as Merry and Jason bewitch each other amid the supernatural mayhem.”

Strange Neighbors Ashlyn Chase. Sourcebooks Casablanca, $6.99 (384p) ISBN 978-1-4022-3661-7

When nurse Merry MacKenzie rents an apartment in a historic Boston home, she's taken with her new landlord, sexy baseball pitcher Jason Falco, and intrigued by the possibility of a ghost on the premises. It doesn't take long to figure out that her neighbors are an odd bunch: a couple of witches who run a phone sex business, several shape-shifters, a werewolf, and a vampire in (of course) the basement. The scariest entity by far is determined reporter Lila Crum, whose pursuit of Jason knows no boundaries. Add in Jason's snoopy and decidedly nonsupernatural aunt and the good-natured fun never stops. Chase (Vampire Vintage) brings on plenty of laughs along with steamy sex scenes as Merry and Jason bewitch each other amid the supernatural mayhem. (June)

My agent is talking with the producer and I'm trying to breathe properly while I wait. Wish me luck!

Thanks all.

My cousin, an Emmy Award winning TV writer (been at it for 30+ years) just sent some encouraging words.

Basically, he said, "When you throw things into the wind, good things can happen."

A version of my mother's motto. "Nothing ventured, nothing gained."
