I’m heading into the resolution phase of the first draft of Chosen, out next year. It’s a new genre for me, and it’s pushing me hard.
Today, Robyn gave me this lovely gift. It’s glass, with the date I signed my contract. I love it.
We do this for each other; little gifts that remind us of the day our novels were contracted. Special days that mean our dreams of publishing keep coming true. So far hers have been Zippos with the titles and contract dates (themed to go with her books, if possible).
I’ve got a beautiful glass book with the Afterlife series on it. We’ve both just gotten new contracts for our next books, and so the tradition will continue.
I’m feeling very lucky today.
