Today’s Soundtrack – What else could it be but my song, Tiffany Blews by Fall Out Boy?
Do you have any idea how long I’ve been waiting to tell you guys? Do you??
Entranced Publishing, those lovely, lovely people, have signed me and my manuscript, Blood Born.
I’m not ashamed to tell you that when I got the message, I burst into tears and scared my family to death because they thought there’d been some kind of tragedy. I initially found out I was being offered a contract when I sent a message to check on my submission – tenterhooks do not look good on me – and was totally expecting an, ‘It wasn’t right for us’ in response. So when I was told the contract was being drawn up, I self-combusted.
It took them days to get the stains off the kitchen ceiling.
I couldn’t have done this without my Twitter family. Julie Hutchings. I never thought it was possible to care this much about someone you’ve never met. I count you among my closest friends. When something happens, you’re one of the first people I turn to. And you have always believed in me. You’ve picked me up and given me a spit shine when I need it. No matter how moany or down on myself I get, you’ve told me to get off my ass and write. You truly are one of the funniest, most badass don’t-care people I’ve ever met, and you are freaking amazing.
Kristen, we actually met, and I love you all the more for it. You’re hilarious and it’d be impossible not to have a good time around you. It means the world to me that you’re always there, that you’re not afraid to tell me when something is shite and equally ready to tell me if something’s ace. I sincerely hope both yours and Julie’s books do fantastically. In fact, I know they will.
Cassandra Page, Louise Gornall, Kat Ellis, Kristen Jett, J.C. Gregorio, Ruth Shedwick, Laura Hughes, J. Liz Hill, Meghan Schuler….I could go on. Thanks for putting up with my ridiculous tweets, for taking part in my projects and inviting me to be a part of yours, for making me laugh and brightening my Twitter feed. You’ve all been a part of my journey up to this point. This is me saying thanks for everything. I love you all.
