As I journey through this exciting phase of becoming a published author, there are certain landmarks worth celebrating - getting an agent, going out on submission, getting offers, getting a deal and signing your first contract. I did that yesterday. It arrived two months after my agent and I agreed a deal with one of the interested publishers. Two months! These things take time I know but I felt like a kid waiting for Christmas. "Is it here yet? Is it here yet?" Thank goodness my agent is a super nice man and puts up with my impatience.
But it's done now. It's official. I also supplied my bio and author pics yesterday for the press release in May.
I get edits next week on book 1. I'm 15,000 words into book 2. Stuff is happening. And it's so bloody exciting.
