What I did when I was made an offer.

Most of my Twitter and Facebook friends already know this, but my New Adult Speculative Fiction SLEEPER is being published by Entranced Publishing in December 2013.

The announcement came during Pitch Madness so I couldn't blog about it. But I making up for lot time now.

So I actually got the offer in January, but because I had multiple submissions I had to wait for them all to come back and then work out what I was doing.

I had queried Eden Plantz specifically as her wish list at the time fitted my story. Naturally, I started stalking her on Twitter. I saw a tweet that read she was going to make an author very happy, but her internet was down. Of course I thought there was no way it would be me as I'd not long sent in my submission. The next day I sent out a new lot of queries and literally minutes after I had I had an email for Eden making an offer.

And I kinda went like this:

Then a little bit of this:

And some of this:

So then there was a waiting game as those queries I'd just sent off resulted in swiftly requests for fulls as well. So it ended up being a couple of months between the offer and me being able to sign and announce it.

After Eden had offered, a very persistent Ashley Christman insisted that I was perfect for their Marketing Director Role so now I'm on both sides of the publishing world.

I'm loving the close knit family feel of Entranced and I can't wait to get into edits with my editor.

I want to thank everyone who supported me, especially the Sommies - you guys rock.
