I promised last week that I would have news and so, here it is.
I mentioned that I queried a publisher with my book. Well, they accepted. And sent me a contract just two days later. Which is all wonderful, and I must admit I was fairly excited about this… however…
I gave the contract to one of the lawyers I work with who does entertainment law, and I asked two other published authors to take a look at it, and the end result is, I have declined their offer.
I also promised a “Hooray” or a “Boo!” so: Booo!
It was a fairly good contract, save for two paragraphs, which I won’t go into here, but it was those two paragraphs that decided me. I have worked hard on my novel and I will not take a chance that I won’t be represented fairly.
So off I go again. I will not give up! There are plenty of other publishers out there, and I know I will find a perfect fit. I will update this blog with my progress because it might be a good resource for someone else someday; and it is kind of fun to see where this road will go!
