Waiting around to hear back for that rejection you just know is coming can be one of the most painful things you will ever do as a writer.
You worked for this. You sweat for it. Hell, maybe you even bled for it.
“Yes, paper cuts do count in this industry, thanks very much.”
And then there’s one day when the clouds part and pure, unadulterated Monty Python God-in-the-Heavens sunlight beams down on you… the planets align (literally, in my case), and that rejection… Becomes a yes.
I’m stoked to announce that my soft sci-fi book has been accepted for publication!
I’m not gonna lie, I may have cried a little (Okay a lot, and my waste bin was full of tissues–don’t judge), after I read through the whole email three times just to make sure I wasn’t fooling myself. And then maybe my husband and I celebrated with a bottle of champagne because
YEAH! I’ve got a book coming out, baby!
I’ll have more updates later on, once I have a better idea of things, but look out for my book to hit shelves in 2017!
*Happy dances out of the room.*
