In case you missed it, I made my debut post over on the Emu’s Debuts blog earlier this week! Emu’s Debuts is a group blog maintained by debut authors represented by the Erin Murphy Literary Agency (get it? E. Mu.?) We blog about that nebulous, murky area between an author’s first book offer to the publication of that debut book: Contracts! Revisions! Reviews! Oh my! It may seem like it’s easy once you’ve signed on the dotted line, but it’s a whole new set of problems, anxieties, and rewards.
Anyway, it’s tradition on Emu’s Debuts for the introduction post to be about “the Call.” So, please click here to read how my first book deal came to be.
Have you gotten “the Call” yet? If so, what was it like for you? If not, what do you imagine it will be like when it finally happens? Let me know in the comments!
