It's official!!

I found out today that my New Voices book is definitely going to be published. Yes - Leah Ashton, published author. OMG.

PLUS - Mills & Boon want to publish my next book. To say that I am excited would be a complete understatement :)

I don't have many details yet, but I will be published (there's that word again!) with Riva in the UK, and Sweet/Romance in Australia/US.

I'll share more of my journey since winning New Voices in the next few days, but for now, I will take another sip of my pink champagne, another hug from my super proud fiance, and enjoy this moment :)
