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….
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!
