Making The Deal: A Dream Come True

Yes, I know I didn't post anything on Saturday, but that was because I was waiting for a VERY important contract to be emailed to me from Leticia. What contract, you say?

(I'm aware the pictures are backwards, but the only camera I have is the one on my laptop, and we all know how good those are.) :P


After four years, dozens of turn downs, and a crapload of editing and rewriting, it is done. I, Colleen Elizabeth Boyd, have officially sold my first book, The Swamp Angel, to Spencer Hill Press. The contract is signed and has been mailed. By Leticia's predictions, TSA should be out in stores by the end of 2013.

What am I feeling? Amazed. Wonderful. Glorious. You probably couldn't tell if you talked to me, but I've never really been the squealy, bouncy, jump-for-joy-at-good-news type (just ask the parents). But that doesn't change that I feel so proud, so awed, at how far I've come to this point. I have a feeling greater writing and greater days are to come.

Now if only I can survive my math final. :P

Later days,
Colleen (now a writer) Boyd
