Book Deal for my YA Novel

Finally, after a year and a half submission and during that time having a failed agent, I got a contract offer. And I did it with the help of me, myself and I.

I'll announce the publisher soon. All I can say right now is this place is top notch and I couldn't be happier!

Tenacity is the key my friends!

Ah, got it. I'd thought you were talking about the book you'd received some helpful feedback on from a couple of agents. Which book did you sell?

Thanks again peoplez.

To answer your question from before Unimportant, I did have one I got a lot of agent help from, actually 5 R&Rs, it was nuts. That one is also a YA, but it's not the one that got the offer.

This publisher only deals with one genre, but they wanted to look at that one too. Though I'm not sure it will fit. It's nice they're at least looking at it.

Just waiting to get the contract back and get the okay to publicly announce it. Should be sometime next week I'm hoping. Thanks again everyone for your great support!
