I had to wait a while before it was official, but yesterday (which was also my birthday) I could finally announce on my facebook page that I have a book deal and I’ve signed the contracts! Below is me signing the contract at my Nan’s house; I was in a rush to visit them before I had to go to London for coffee (or hot chocolate in my case) and a chat with my lovely editor, Lucy.
First news of the book deal had come weeks ago and I’d wanted to blog about it for ages, but somehow I managed to restrain myself. I was in London with my friends when my agent rang in early November, already having a pretty awesome day since we were heading to Pizza Express in Convent Garden before seeing Les Mis and it suddenly got about a million times better!
It still doesn’t quite seem real, although I’ve been waiting for it all this time. I’ve admitted that I am probably the most impatient person in the world, but this time my waiting really paid off.
