It is with great pleasure that I announce I have a publisher for my novel Sleep Over!
My first published novel will be with Skyhorse Publishing. They have placed 33 books on the New York Times bestseller list; I hope to add one more to that tally.
I am working closely with one of their editors to get the manuscript where they want it (for a larger audience, more commercial fiction than literary fiction) and I am 10000% on board with getting it to be the best that I possibly can, to reach as large and audience that I can!
I have about 1.5 tons of work to do. How much writing is that? Many. Many writing to do. Notes on just about every chapter. Many new chapters to write.
I am so excited!
I have been waiting to tell everything this news for… let’s see, I submitted my first novel to a publisher in 2002, then wrote 5 more books, then, carry the 1… yes, ten thousand years. But more specifically I had to keep this news about this publisher and this book under wraps for so long! I am so glad to get to tell you finally.
Hurray for me! I have a publisher!
I will keep you posted on things to come.
Expect to hear such exciting news like:
crumbling under the stress of revisions
- tackling tough revisions with gusto
- getting the final draft approved by my editor
- getting an author photo
- getting a back blurb
- getting cover quotes
- getting a cover!
- the book going to print
- a release date
- and much much more!
This process takes a crazy long time; don’t expect to see my book until 2017 (I think a January release was being tossed around- maybe I will get the best birthday present ever).
I will be sure to keep you posted.
Here’s a link to Skyhorse’s site. Sleep Over will be under the Talos imprint, with their other great sci-fi, fantasy, and horror. (For those that don’t know, publishing houses have “imprints” that handle the various genres they work with.)
I’d like to thank everyone who has checked in to see how things are going. It’s a long process, and having your support has really made a difference to me.
Thanks for reading. ❤
