Well, today was a shocker!  I casually opened my email and saw a message from a publisher to whom I had recently submitted my first manuscript.  I didn’t think much about it, expecting it to be another rejection.  In fact, I almost just dumped it without opening it.

But, I didn’t, and when I opened it, I almost fell off my bed!  We had just come home from a pool play date and I was hot and sticky, tired and a bit cranky when I just absentmindedly decided it wouldn’t hurt to click on it to mark as read before I sent it to the trash.

Imagine my surprise when I read the following:

Dear Majken Nilsson,

Thank you for sending us “A Good Kind of Crazy”.  We love it and would like to offer you a contract on it.  We have the contract attached here for you….

Wait..  WHAT?

So there it is, folks!  A real, live publisher wants MY book!  I have a contract!  After reviewing the contract, I have decided that I am going to go for it.  So, watch this space!
