|Signing the contract earlier this week|
I am so beyond excited to share that I officially have a publishing contract for Polar Night!! In between doing the happy dance all around, I have to keep pinching myself to believe this is real.
I learned about a new publisher called Ink Smith through Hope Clark's Funds For Writers earlier this summer, and sent them a query while I was waiting for word from the other publisher who had requested my full ms. Ashley at Ink Smith replied to me and requested a full ms as well, and last week she got back with me to offer a contract. As of today, it's all official!
Polar Night will be released as both a paperback and an ebook, and my head is already spinning just from getting a message from Ashley about discussing the cover art. Again, time to pinch myself! I'm floored to even have the words "cover art" and my book in the same sentence.
I'm too excited to even think coherently, but I wanted to send out a huge thanks to everyone I have met in the blogosphere. Becoming part of this supportive and fantastic community has been a big help for me to gain the confidence I needed to even attempt to submit anything I wrote for publication.
If someone had told me two years ago at this time that I would have a contract to publish my novel I would have asked them what kind of drugs they were taking. ;) But I've since learned that great things are indeed possible if you just take the leap and try. Becoming part of this community was a big part of finally learning that lesson, so again I am so very grateful to all my blogging buddies!
Now going back to my happy dance! :)
