It’s My Birthday!

Happy Birthday, to me!

This February, I was offered a contract on my first novel by a small press publishing house. While I didn’t feel the non-negotiable contract was in my best favor, I did decline the opportunity.

However, I am so thrilled to say that on this day, my 36th birthday, I have reached a level of storytelling that someone was willing to invest in. I have moved from a place of wondering about the quality of my work to knowing that I have the ability to write a clear story, with an engaging plot, a mess of colorful characters, delivered through realistic dialogue.

While I could have said ‘yes’ and had my first book in my hands this December, I am willing to wait for the right deal to come along that is in my favor as well as the publisher’s.

What an awesome birthday present!!

  1. Brilliant!! I am beaming, reading this, too fabulous! Congrats- I am glad you are going to wait for the right situation to come along- I know that day will soon come. But YES these words made me want to dance- “I have reached a level of storytelling that someone was willing to invest in.” AYE! A wonderful gift!

    Ebullient and most scintillatingly jubilant (belated oh dear!) birthday wishes, dear lass! Cheers,
