Happy Two Year Anniversary!

Today marks my second anniversary of the day my life changed!

On September 14, 2007 I received THE CALL that changed everything for me in all the best possible ways! I'm reminiscing a bit about the past two years over on the Casablanca Authors blog (just click on the title of this post to go there). It has been a FANTASTIC journey so far, and I anticipate more to come.

Here's what I posted back then:

This morning I received THE CALL that all us hopeful AYUs long to get.

Sourcebooks wants to publish my novel Death In The Fens in the Fall of 2008!

I have been screaming, hyperventilating and generally jumping around like a lunatic ALL DAY! I wouldn't be a bit surprised if my head spun completely around and I spewed pea soup (even though I NEVER touch the stuff)!

Basically I have been busting my butt to achieve this goal for almost FOUR YEARS, but being published has been my dream for most of my life! I was beginning to fear that I would never feel the joy of going into a bookstore and seeing MY BOOK on the shelf. BUT NOW I WILL!!!

I AM AYU (As Yet Unpublished) NO LONGER!!!

I love that the excitement never really goes away. And reading this makes me want want want to someday have a story like this of my own. Next year is when the rubber meets the road and I will be submitting my little heart out. LOL!

Happy Anniversary and thanks for letting us all share in the party.

Loucinda McGary aka Aunty Cindy said...

AWWW! Thanx bunches, Helen!

I'm sooo glad you enjoyed both my books. Having fans like you and the other folks here really make this writing gig worthwhile!


Loucinda McGary aka Aunty Cindy said...

Yes TerriO!
I will be nagging you relentlessly to get your book written and OUT THERE!

I expect to be celebrating THE CALL with you, and Sheila, and a few others who hang out here VERY SOON!

DO NOT make Aunty get out the crop...
