It Happened!

The day all aspiring writers wait for, pray for, offer their first-born child to the publishing gods for, happened. Friday I signed a contract with The Wild Rose Press for my Golden Heart manuscript, RAFE'S REDEMPTION!! It will be part of their Scarlet Rose line. I don't have a release date yet, but I will keep all of you updated.
The excitement surpasses the day I got the Golden Heart Contest call -- and I was trembling that day.
So tell me about a day you will always remember in your journey to publication! I'd love to hear from you:)

  2. Mega Congrats on the contract!!!

    I haven't been writing in a while, but one particularly good day was when I won The Emily contest in the paranormal category in '05. That one still makes me smile. ;-)

  3. Jen,

    I'm thrilled for you. My biggest day would be my first contest win in 2009.

  4. Oh forgot to mention my fav day. This one goes back before I made it into a national mag, before I placed or won in contests, before I had a book come out... It was when I wrote my fav author in high school and she wrote me a personal letter back and told me that I should be a writer, not to let anything stand in my way. I still have it framed. Still love Bodie Thoene!

  5. Wow. Congrats on the win, and the publication. My first "call" was actually an email from Red Sage, and my heart was in my throat as I opened it. Who knew that greater moments were to come--the final proof for cover art, the release date, final ms, ARC's...It's a beautiful journey, and I know you'll savor it as much as I have.

    Good luck,
    Em~

    My day ...so far was when I sold my first story to True Love. Then again with the second..and third...it took a while for me to realize it wasn't a fluke...

  12. You already know how happy I am for you :), but I'll say it again - I'M HAPPY FOR YOU!! LOL Can't wait to read it. A year ago, I learned about the RWA from Eloisa James, joined and then went to conference where I met my fellow Ass Cheek Angels! It's been a great year!
