Guess what? Guess what? Guess what!
So, I can’t remember if I’ve updated the latest on my publishing journey – but basically my book is currently in the hands of my editor (I love saying that!) and she’s going to give her preliminary comments to my publishers, Pantera Press, around the first week of June. Woohooie! I have no idea what comes after that – but I can’t wait to find out!
Anyway, the even-more-super-awesome news is that I was reading a newly released book the other day by one of my favourite Young Adult authors, and I really enjoyed it (enough that I pretty much read it in one sitting). But the exciting part? I read through the ‘Acknowledgements’ after I’d finished and…
… *drum roll please* …
HER EDITOR IS MY EDITOR!!!!!!!
How amazingly exciting is that! I mean, this author is signed with HarperCollins Australia and her books are sold all over the world! My publishers told me a while ago that my editor had worked with the big houses like HarperCollins, Hachette, Simon & Schuster and Pan Macmillan, but still! Actually seeing evidence of a book that she’s edited (and me loving that book!) have really nailed it home for me. I’m so, so, so excited! And I’m a little bit in La-La-Happy-Land, to be perfectly honest!
It’s so surreal, but soooo YAY-worthy! And I just wanted to share with you all since you’ve been so encouraging on this journey with me! Hopefully I’ll have another update soon!
