Well, I think the deal has been hammered out enough that I can give more details.
Basically, after my last post I went out and contacted a wonderful agent, who agreed to take me on. She negotiated with Dorchester, and got me a FOUR book deal. Four books! I have to write three of them this year, but the first is going to be published around March 2005, and the next one should be out in July 2005. I still can’t wrap my brain around all of this. I just received my first revision letter, and the changes to my book are due by August 1st. On top of that, the lease is up on my apartment at the end of July, so I have to find a new place to live. Wah! I don’t know where to go, though I suspect I’ll stay in the same city.
When I get back from Clarion East I’ll be updating the Wolverine and Jubilee page. I’m also going to start building a personal website, one that will reflect this other aspect of my writing life.
Thanks to everyone for your kind words and patience! I really appreciate it!
