I'm going to be published...

Okay, not OMG Bacon! But OMG, I've been offered a contract for my Christmas story from MLR Press! The email came this morning at a time when it was really needed, when I was a little down in the dumps, and Oh Emm Gee, it put met through the roof. MLR is where some of my fave writers are - SJ Frost, Jet Mykles, James Buchanan - how intimidating is that? I'm going to try and act out of character for now and pretend it's not intimidating at all, pretend I'm not shaking with nerves of happiness and fear. I'm going to get on with my day and ignore the fact I have to sign a contract that I really know nothing about, write not 1 but 3 blurbs which were totally invented by the devil himself, decide on a them for the website that Zathyn Priest is helping me make (*squees*), and still have to finish my YA story for the Gay-Straight Alliance for Monday. Just gonna relax and chill and everything will be fine. *faints*

PS I'm also going to have to convince my beautiful Ivan to overlook his cowboy-phobia and read my boys. :P


  1. Well, isn't that just the best news ever? And you were just discouraged only a few days ago! See! See! :)

    Congrats, sweetpea. That's great news. And yes, yes, I will read your cowboys (grumbling slightly)

    WooT! Uber big congrats darlin'. And big squishie hugs too!

  3. Oh!!!! Congrats:) That's the best news!


  4. Oh thank you, you guys! It was a bit of a shock because I never really expected the first thing I submitted to be accepted. I'm a little stunned.

    Ivan - stop grumbling, cupcake - you may like my boys. *squishes*
