Those who have been following my blog for the past year might remember the line used to describe my website. “Katherine Givens: A writer trying to get her big toe in the publishing industry’s door.” Today I am proud to say that my big toe pushed in and, maybe, the other toes.
I received a contract offer today from a terrific publisher, which I am most likely to accept. The contract is for a novella I wrote several months ago, which is titled In Her Dreams. The story is a historical romance about a woman in love with a figment of her dreams, but her dreams cross over into reality.
It is ironic that this is my first sale, because yesterday being a published author was merely a dream for me. Today, it has crossed over into reality, and I could not be happier. I think it is safe to say that I might be the happiest person walking this earth at the moment.
Further details about In Her Dreams will be released as the process moves along. I shall announce the name of my publisher when the contract is signed, sealed, and delivered. For now, all I can say is I am very, very thrilled with the company.
