A few days ago I signed my first writing contract with Etopia Press for my contemporary romance Concealed Desire.
This acceptance was the first email feedback I've received from a publisher on this particular piece and I was very emotional when I found out they enjoyed the story.
Celebrating commenced immediately, mainly consisting of me drinking myself into oblivion. My husband and two boys surprised me with flowers and chocolates and my mum and dad went all out with a bottle of vodka and a single red rose.
When it came time to announce it to the world my crit buddies, internet friends and even strangers were online to give their messages of congratulations.
So far the whole experience has been surreal. I'm excited, nervous as hell but determined to make the story sharp and polished to perfection through the editing process...although I have no idea what is involved in said process.
I can't wait to share Beth and Dean's story with you all.
Stay tuned and hopefully one day soon I will have a date to announce.
