I've finally had a book accepted by a publisher! Hooray!

It's been 13 years since I started submitting. When I read a 'yes' instead of the usual 'no,' I almost had a heart attack, and I'm still not sure I read it right.
:D :D :D :!:

P.S. The book was written entirely in Scrivener, of course!

Congratulations!
What genre is it? Fiction or non-fiction? What's it called? What's it about?

Fifteen years you say? I wouldn't know how to cope with rejections for so long.

But good for you for hanging in there.

I hope it's huge success.

You`ll have to ask bobueland about that.
As a professional, you, are your one and only asset. Without integrity you are worthless, but with it, you are priceless.

In answer to a few of you, it's a fantasy book, and will probably end up being classified as young adult even though that's not specifically what I was intending it for. It's called Reiyalindis, which is the name of the main character. If all goes well it should be out in 6 months or so…fingers crossed…

Thanks, all!

I second Mary. I love young adult stuff. It's the stuff I try to write myself. I too will be on the lookout for the book. I always look for new stuff for my bookstore and it's extra fun knowing about a book this long before it gets released.
So see you on the bookstore shelves.
