Can I share some good news with you?

Post by taylormillgirl » July 18th, 2011, 8:38 am

My agent (Nicole Resciniti) sold my contemporary romance in a three book deal to Sourcebooks.

I've been on these boards (sporadically) during the whole journey. In fact, the advice I received here in October helped save my manuscript from a sad, slow death!

(Here's the old thread: viewtopic.php?f=2&t=2572)

Just wanted to share the good news, say "thank you" for helping me along the way, and remind you that "real" people like me are still getting deals--so don't ever give up.

CONGRATULATIONS!! It's wonderful to hear that there really are regular people breaking into the publishing realm these days. And for it to be one of our own, and that we somehow helped along the journey - squee!! Priceless!!

Thanks for sharing, and may publication be everything you've dreamed of it being!!

Congratulations! How wonderful! Keep us informed!

(Still on submission with mine - looks like it will be an R&R for me, but I still have my fingers crossed.)

You guys are great! Quill, that's sweet of you to say, but I'm not particularly proud of my webpage; (I made it myself, and I think it shows). I'd told my husband I'd hire a web designer if I made a sale, and that's what I'm in the process of doing. :D
