To those of you who were avidly following my previous blog post…are any of you still around? I wouldn’t blame you if you weren’t, it’s been so long since I last wrote one. To you, I offer my humble apologies and even more so to Laura who gave me this opportunity in the first place. Sorry chuck!
So why haven’t I hardly done any posts this year? Have I been alive? Have I done anything? Has anything happened to me? In words as few as possible…YES!!!!
As you may recall from my first post and onwards, I’ve told you about what I’ve been doing so far as my quest to attain publication pertains (please note the use of complicated words!) and a few months, I managed to attain that holy grail. Well, kind of. I’m a born pessimist, so until the actual day, there’s still plenty of time for things to go pear-shaped.
Suffice to say, I’ve now signed my first contract and ‘The Season For Love’ is due to be e-published, on both sides of the Pond no less, around the beginning of December. I still can’t believe it! In fact, I could fill this whole post with exclamation marks, but in the hope that you’ll actually read this, I won’t…but I could! Sorry, couldn’t resist that one.
To say that this is a big deal, though it’s only a one book deal, is an understatement. Everyone has to start somewhere though, and this is mine. Mind you, it’s been a very successful year (so far) for the branch of the Romantic Novelist’s Association that I belong to. Way to go Birmingham branch! (Oh look, there’s another one)
My good friends Bernadette O’Dwyer (writing as Erin Green) has published ‘A Christmas Wish’; Morton Gray (writing as Morton S Gray) has published ‘The Girl on the Beach’ and Lyn Forth has ‘Love in La La Land’ coming out later this year. Huge congratulations ladies, and my thanks for all your support to myself as well.
