A Signed Contract!

August 14, 2017

My writing journey took a decided shift when earlier this month I signed a publishing contract!

After two years of writing, snatching time from where none existed, and many, many late nights, when my characters and I could run free, there is finally a finished product. But still, even after “The End,” I wasn’t done…

 

Next came editing (lots of editing) months and months of revision, followed by a professional edit, thankfully, dripping red. Then a final revision, followed by a final, final revision—you get the idea.

At that point is when the real work began, preparing materials to query agents and publishers, along with a new review and revision process to match each agent’s or publisher’s preferences. Nightly, I set goals and sent emails to agents and publishers in my genre that I had pre-identified through months of research. Then I waited. One rejection … then another … and another … then …

 

After eight months of querying I’m ecstatic to have signed a contract in early August! My manuscript will be published in the June / July 2018 time frame. I will keep you all updated with the final title, cover reveals, and updated timelines.
