I've had this news under my hat for a few weeks and struggled whether to post it here or not. I don't ever want to look like I'm bragging, yet I read about some of your struggles and I want to reach through the screen and say 'don't give up!'

While many authors are overnight successes in a race to the top, for most of us we have to remember it's more of a marathon.

So.....here it is....My good news is this: What started out as a simple novella written to self pub between books has miraculously turned into a contract with Amazon Publishing for a 3-book deal. The first book in my new trilogy will be released mid-2013. If you want to know how I got from A to Z, you can read more about it on my blog. While everyone's journey is different, I wrote a post about mine in the hopes that it can help any writer who is in the same shoes I was a few years ago.

Awesome, Kay!!!

And your post is in no way bragging. (But brag away if the mood should take you - you deserve a bit of a brag for that kind of news! ;D)

(Edited to correct Kay's name. I have a houseful of guests staying here with us at the moment. Bedlam!)

Fantastic news, congratulations...and the "more of a marathon" theme is wonderful; the splash of success stories here on KB in the past couple of weeks, including yours, should definitely give all of us renewed energy for our own marathons. Congratulations!

Congratulations!

We get a lot of success stories on here, and you know, I'm never surprised! We have so many talented fingers around here. Lightning just keeps striking, and I tell my non-author friends about you guys all the time!

Kay, I'm a fan and I'm so glad to hear of your news!

Thanks so much, everyone, for your kind words. It means a lot to have someone to share the news with who truly understands the scope of what a blessing it is.

My non-immediate family members were like, "Oh yeah? Hmm...pass the gravy."

:D
