I did it... I'm an author

Postby gillshutt » Fri Aug 19, 2011 11:02 am

I had an email yesterday to say the publisher wants to publish my book gobsmacked to say the least. So that's it, about November time I will be a published author. OMG! It's only coming out in e format so for kindle, nook computer etc. No 'real life' copies but hey, who cares! lol It's a fantasy book written in verse... like a celtic or norse saga. I wrote the first poem for my neice many years ago then carried it on to make it a generation spanning story.

Oh and I have a poem published HERE

Things are looking up I'm over the moon and a danger on the roads as I keep drifting off and thinking about it lol

Managed to fall face first into the floor yesterday, lost my balance or something... so getting the email cheered me up a lot. Managed not to hurt myself too much, put my hands up to my face and stopped my glasses from smashing thank god.

Hope you're not too battered and bruised after your fall yesterday :grouphug: :grouphug: :grouphug: :grouphug: :grouphug:
