    Good news!

    Discussion in 'The Lounge' started by AWR, May 25, 2012.

    Been a long time since I have been on - hmmm, remind me to check if my profile is up to date.

    Had to share some good news because, well, I reckon I am going to end up telling everyone anyway.

    Had my first book accepted for publishing. A children's book. Never expected the first one to be a kids' book but, hey, not going to argue!
    Planned to be released in early 2013 - just got the fully signed contract yesterday but it has been in editing and design since Feb.
    The publisher supplies schools with the reading texts so there is a twenty or so being done at the same time.

    I am still in the "Wow, me?" phase of this ....

    Congratulations! I've just started pre-service teaching so I find this really cool. Out of curiosity, who are you publishing with?
