I'm going to faint. *taking deep breaths* It's too bad nobody is here to pick me up off the floor......because..... (drumroll, please)
I JUST GOT OFFERED MY VERY FIRST CONTRACT FOR MY BOOK "BAYOU SUMMONS"!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I'm sorry I'm yelling, but I really, seriously can not help it!!!!
Here's how it went, I sent the query along with the synopsis and first three chapters. ONE day later, they emailed me requesting the full MS. I wasn't expecting that and am loath to admit that I didn't have it finished, so I said I would send it in by the end of the weekend.
She emailed me back, then asked about my cover art. AT this point, I had three more chapters done, so I sent that along with my reply.
Less than an hour later, she emailed me saying she wanted it, was impressed with how polished it was and that she was sure it would sell fast!!!!! HOLY SMOKES!!! Then she told me she would be sending me the contract TOMORROW and not to rush, take my time with the rest of the MS......
Is anyone else feeling my excitement?????????
A dream come true!!! I never ever really htought I would be published, I have to be honest, not to mention with not even half a MS!!
I'm flying super duper high! Need some high fives, ya'll......rofl...not only have I been offered my very first contract, but I've also gotten another cover artist position!!
The publisher is DARK EDEN PRESS and if you're writer, check them out! They're seeking submissions!!!
