After a long, hot summer filled with plenty of rejections, Finishing Line Press sent me an email last week stating that they “loved my manuscript” and wanted to publish it. I was so stunned that I sent them an email to confirm that someone hadn’t made a mistake. No mistake. They have accepted it. I’m pinching myself.
I haven’t received the contract yet, or even had time to read through the incredibly long, pre-contract email, but nevertheless, I’m celebrating. My poetry manuscript has been accepted!
It’s not the manuscript I thought I would publish first (i.e., my memoir), but it’s one I worked hard on. I’m proud of it—even if I do want to make a few tiny little edits before it goes to print….
I will keep you posted as things develop, but publication is expected in 2016.
Until next time,
