I was seriously giddy when I got the e-mail from Isobel Akenhead, at Bookouture, saying how much she loved my writing, characters and story. And even more giddy when Bookouture made me an offer of publication.
I’ve signed the contract. Even had my first interview as a writer, from Jericho Writers. It gives a succinct summary of the journey since my last blog. Check it out here.
With a two-book contract signed, I am working on edits of Nothing Stays In The Dark Forever and in between that, writing the second book in the deal. Read Bookouture's announcement of this here.
When people tell you the road to publication is a rocky one, with tears, grit and disappointments, believe them. But remember too that some of those tears could be of joy and for the sense of achievement.
What are your views on the writing journey and road to publication?
