So I was wrong. Happily. Can't post too many details yet until the contracts are signed, but, I got another offer for a contract. Yes, yes, yes, it was on the one I was so sure was a "no". I feel like such an ass too.
So that makes 7 for anyone keeping track (like me).
I know it is something of a cliche, but in my case it still applies. If anyone had told me in April 2007 that a year from then I would have 7 contracted works with 3 different publishers and that I would be writing erotic romances besides, well...I would have thought they were crazy. I'm still not sure how it happened. But I am going to enjoy it just the same.
