I am pleased, actually...no...chuffed to chuffing bits to announce that, subject to the normal thingimajigs....

I'VE SOLD MAH BOOK!

It's a contemporary m/m erotic romance and I would never have written it if I hadn't stumbled upon Absolute Write.

This place rocks.

Alert the media!

Can you say yet who your publisher will be, or is it too early?

Maryn, curious

thanks everyone.

I'm still in a state of shock here because it happened so fast!

The editor asked for the missing attachments (synopsis and sample chapters) on Thursday. She asked for the full MS an hour and a half later and then emailed me yesterday with the news :Wha:

I'll post details when the contracts are signed and stuff.

Congratulations! That's really good to read as somebody just starting to get into the community. Gives me some hope that getting further into this isn't complete bollocks on my part.

Back in your success, you've more than earned it!

Thanks, again!

I'm still waiting for the contract, but the person who does them has been on holiday, so it shouldn't be too long now.

Apparently, if it sells well, it goes into print too! So...
