I'm on a bit of a hiatus.

I spent the last week in Yarmouth at the cabin and this weekend I'm off to the wilderness of Norther NB to hike. So I'm going to say I'm on vacation because I haven't had any time on the computer to write. I'm still very excited about my book contract! Hope everyone is having a great August!

I'M GOING TO BE PUBLISHED!!!


Back in December I mentioned that I had submitted the manuscript I had been working on about my transplant story to a publisher. I thought it would be fun to try going through official channels of publishing instead of doing it myself this time. After being asked for the full manuscript a few months later (one of the more exciting emails in my life) and then asked to revise and resubmit, I got the following email:
And I signed the contract with Nimbus on Wednesday!!!!!!! AHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!

I'm stoked. I feel like a real writer!

The publishing date is going to be sometime in Spring 2019 which feels very far away but the publishing industry does not move very quickly. They also want to give a lot of time for editing and revising. It's going to be very different and a much longer process than my self-published experience.
But it's also more exciting to be working with a real publisher. So many more things to think about. I need to get headshots done! Eek!

Look for me on your bookshelves in 2019!!
