I signed my contract yesterday. I’m…amazed and grateful and still sort of surprised. For the first few weeks I wondered if maybe the conversation with the editor and the frantic emails with my agent were some sort of cosmic joke. I kept waiting for someone to jump out of the bushes and yell, “You are so PUNKED!”
But now my name is on the paper.
In permanent ink.
With the title “AUTHOR” right above it.
It’s real, guys. No one can snatch this away from me now (at least not easily). I know this is just the beginning, that there is still a ton of hard work to be done, but I’m really, really looking forward to it!
