To Echelon Press....probably due out, in print and e-book, in 2009.

This is the very first novel that I ever wrote, been retweaking and rewriting (extensively) since 1968 so..... It does happen!

another baby step forward! :)

Thanks guys. Actually 2 small publishers were interested in it, but Echelon responded first.
Now I'm psyched to work on my other two novels and submit them back out to some agents. Maybe my luck is starting to change :Shrug:

Wow-- WAY TO GO, Toni!

(I'm still reading your ONYX book, by the way, but my lap top has crashed and I may have lost some of the comments-- grrrr.)

:snoopy: :snoopy: :snoopy: Now go out and celebrate your achievment!

Oh nO! Every writer's nightmare! Well, once your book sells you can get a state of the art system - hopefully no more crashes ;)

I'd celebrate with chocolate - unfortunately, I'm allergic :cry:
So I guess I'll just keep rewriting Silvery Moon instead :D

I should also mention that Echelon pays a nominal advance upon commencement of production; also the author receives ten complimentary copies of the novel. This will be the first time that I've actually received money up front for my work (PA's dollar doesn't count, sorry;) ) so I am really excited about that. I feel like I'm taking a step forward for a change and can only hope the best is yet to come:roll:
