Proof I Didn’t Make This Up

There are lots of little milestones we writers dream about as we chase the dream of publication. We watch our friends land that dream agent and then go on to sell and imagine the day that will all happen to us.

One of those milestones is seeing the announcement of our sale in an industry publication. Mine took a little longer, but the proof that this is really happening came through today. (I had the contract as proof, but when it goes public is a really cool feeling.)

From Publishers Marketplace:

Terri Osburn’s Golden Heart nominated contemporary romance MEANT TO BE, set in a small island community off the coast of North Carolina, to Lindsay Guzzardo at Montlake Romance, in a three-book deal, by Nalini Akolekar at Spencerhill Associates.

 So there it is . For reals. I’ve been smiling through my panic-filled, sleep-deprived brain fog since my agent sent the message over this morning. I’d say let the insanity begin, but that train left the station weeks ago.

    It feels so real. Do you need a moment? Some Halloween candy? Anything?

    So happy/proud/amazed of/at you.

    (it’s like madlibs. Pick your sentence.)

    Very, very Cool!

    I have a feeling it’s just going to keep getting more and more real! LOL Sorta like those little fun twinges as you become an adult. Kinda like that feeling you get when you walk into a store for the first time and slap your own credit card down on the counter or pay your first bill with a check from your new checking account.

    Enjoy the feeling!!!!!

    Did you have to mention credit cards?! LOL! Thanks for the reminder. I have a bill to pay. 🙂

    It is surreal and crazy and tonight I got to see the design for my real website and it’s BEYOOTEEFUL! I can’t wait to show it off.
