It’s official, folks: I have signed my first book contract. I signed with Wicked Whale Publishing, and it’s amazing owner, K. R. Conway.
I found Ms. Conway through the website, Netgalley, when I was given an ARC of the first book in her series, Undertow. After devouring the YA fantasy in a few days, I put my review on Goodreads and also sent her a message, telling her how much I had enjoyed it.
This began a back and forth conversation that has continued, on and off, for around three years. After finishing Lift, I chose to publish independently. Ms. Conway’s small press, Wicked Whale, puts out wonderful books, and I decided to publish Lift with her.
Signing this first contract was surreal. I honestly wasn’t sure I would get this far. But thanks to very supportive family and friends, it happened. I am hoping Lift will be available by mid-winter.
I look forward to sharing my first YA fantasy novel with the world. The prequel to Lift, entitled Whirl, is available for free here, under The Flying Ponies page.
I hope every one of you has a blessed weekend.
