Signing Contract with Penguin USA


Signing My Contract with Penguin USA

Sunday, April 8, 2007

Happy Easter.  The publishing process continues to move along.  I signed my contract with Penguin USA in March and yesterday I received my copy of the completed contract, along with my first check.  Yippee!  I can officially say I've earned money as a writer.   I'll have to dig up all my old receipts so I can be prepared for next years taxes.  The manuscript has been submitted to my editor.  Right now I'm working on obtaining permissions for the photographs that will be used in the book -- from both the person who took the photo or people in the photo.   I also have to get permissions for some of the quotes in my book - I have three of the four granted.  So it's time to take a break and go to Washington, D.C., to see the cherry blossoms.
