I had a meeting this morning with a gentleman whom I met through an acquaintance at work who had read a few chapters of my current project. This guy owns a regional publishing house. The initial meeting was just a meet and greet to pick his brain.
I walked out of this morning’s meeting and realized – I have a publisher.
I HAVE A PUBLISHER!!!!!!!!
(Yes, you may picture me jumping up and down, screaming joyfully, and spinning until I’m sick. )
I’m approximately 30 day’s out from finishing my project. That means 30 days from starting to figure out the publishing world. I don’t look at this end date with such trepidation. Instead I’m looking at it as the next big adventure. I’m walking with someone who knows the tools needed to make the marketing and PR pieces of the puzzle that I have no clue about.
I’m really dizzy right now. I think I’m going to sit down now.
