Got My Contract, First Check and a New Editor
Wednesday, May 16, 2007
It's official -- I'm a paid author. Yippee. The first check from my advance arrived in the mail along with my copy of the publishing contract with the signatures of the president and senior vice-president of Penguin USA. I'm working feverishly on getting the permissions for the photographs that will appear in the book.
While I was on a three week trip to Washington DC and the adjoining states Samantha, my Berkley Books editor, advised me that she was leaving the publishing business. I've talked to my new editor Katie Day and she is just as committed to and excited about my project at Samantha. I'm waiting for her to edit the manuscript.
