Well, folks, the bad news is, the book isn't going to carry its' original title, due to the fact that the publishing house already has a book by that title [or similar title] in production.

The new name of the book?

Yesterday's Love

Sigh.

The contract is in negotiation process....

this is so much FUN!

No, Kraw, I did this one solo...
but who knows what will come from this?

I'm talking to folks with a true story
to be their "ghost writer..."

I have a second novel that will spin off the first;

I have another novel in the beginning stages....

I have dreams, Sir, I have dreams....

and you know what?     

They could all come true!

Wish me luck, please...
That, and a Chivas Regal....

Sunshine:  What wonderful news!!  I have been gone for a week and just trying to catch up with all the events! I recently published a chapbook and was over the moon!
I can't imagine what it would be like to have a real, live novel published!!  I'll look forward to hearing more about it.

Love

Thank you Betty, and Phil.  It IS rather exciting!

The contract negotiations have been reviewed, I am satisfied with their offers, and the original paperwork is now being snail-mailed.  Their request for more information and the W-9 have been sent and received, and ready to go back with the contract once it arrives and signatures have been affixed.

After that, I meet the production crew.

I remember when PiP went through all of the process and procedures to get all of their various anthologies out.  All I want for Christmas, then, this year, is a small box of patience and perspective.

It can be a very little box.  It really shouldn't weigh too much, so I imagine Santa could even tuck it into his pocket.  I don't particularly care what color the box might be, nor does it have to be wrapped up in foil, or carry any ribbons.

I just want to be able to open it up now and then, to remind myself that wonderful things come in small packages.  For I have a feeling that this very little dull and unadorned box is going to carry for me all of the best things I could ever imagine receiving, for the rest of my life.

So, if Santa is listening, that is it.  That is the only thing that is on my wish list.

For I have received everything else in the way of friends and family, and my dreams?  Well, they remain intact, as well.

Hugs, Friends.  Huge hugs.

Karilea,
   Congratulations!  ELATION! First, I'm glad your brother is doing better and that he hears the great news!  Secondly, may I have your autograph? And book me a couple of copies, please!   I'm so happy for you, Sunshine!  This made my day (but secretly, I knew they'd go for your book!).   Let us know when when they hit the stand!

'Yesterday's Love'
Now, what about movie rights, who will be the producer/director, who gets offered the leading roles?

Maureen, super baby...we've been through a lot!

Dautz, for a new member, you're finding yourself at home right off the bat.  I hope you find everything here that you've been looking for.  Thank you for the well wishes!

Kacy, believe it or not, you're not asking a "new" question!  Share a dream with someone, and chances are they are going to jump up and down with you, and FOR you!  That's what I've been experiencing, and it's a nice feeling!

No, it's a GREAT feeling!

This book is almost "three" years old  already...having started it in March 2002.  I have learned so much along the way.  You can probably all imagine that I did not expect it to be picked up first thing out of the shoot.  Heck, I figured it would find several series of eyes long before finding acceptance [outside of my Passions family, that is.]

And I would say that for every two people locally, one has asked, "so when is the movie coming out?"  LOL...one very kind friend doesn't ask "when", she's making plans for me to pick out the cast now.  ROFL...

I worked 12 hours Sunday on the sequel.  I am just as excited to work on this one as I was to work on the first.  Simply because of all of you.

Those of you who read the first few chapters...you were all marvelous inspiration.  But the biggest thing of this for me is the "sharing".  

Yes, that's the biggest thing...

Thank you all for your wonderful comments, and marvelous attitude.  I hope to soon see many more "successes" of acceptance by publishing houses from many of our poets and prose writers.

Because [and here's the cliche]...if I can do it...so can most of you...[and I say most, because I know we have a LOT of readers here, and don't try their hand at all in writing.  Won't it be wonderful for us, when they do???]



Yea, one happy camper here...

GADS...

and once it's in their hand?  We head to Production!

What a LOT of learning I'm in store for!

Thank you, everyone, for the e-mails, notes, and general enthusiasm you've brought with you!

Excerpt from E-mail received today from publishing house:

quote:
Your contract was received!

Welcome and congratulations on the first step to achieving the dream of
having your book published. Today
we received in our offices your signed contract.

...Second, you will be contacted within one week from today by our Pre-Production Staff. They will be sending you information on preparing your final draft, delivering other materials, and they will provide a delivery date for all of the items we need to begin production of the book.

...Again, welcome to the beginning of a dream come true.


So in addition to getting giddy over Christmas...and other things...I get to look forward to extra packages "in the mail!"

Oh, it's going to be a fun month!

That's one hell of a Christmas gift you're getting Karilea and a well deserved one too.

I'm so happy for you.
