...then this is the GREATEST news in the world.
I have a publisher!!!!
My amazing, fantastic, believes in my novel like no one else, agent has got me a 2 book deal with one of the UK's top publishers.
I can't believe I just wrote that.
I can't believe it's real.
I can't believe that, in a few weeks, MY PUBLISHER is going to take us both out for lunch to talk about my book and their plans for it!
Including *shakes head in astonishment* issues like cover design.
I've designed the cover in my head dozens of times but they'll be talking about it for real! An actual, non-imaginary cover that will have my name on it.
I really truly can't believe it.
And I haven't signed a contract yet so I suppose it's not 100% official yet.
But my agent seems to think it is.
Her most recent email to me was titled: "You are now going to be an official author"
It's still sinking in...*
And don't get me started the other talk. Talk of selling the rights to other countries and some of those countries actually showing interest.
It's more than I can take in.
*And even now, blogging about it. I feel like I'm jinxing it and I'll wake up in the morning and someone will tell me I dreamed the whole thing. But I didn't. I have my agent's email to prove it's real. But just in case I dreamed that too...don't wake me up!
