Congratulations again, if this is your first time, it never gets old. Your name is on the cover of a book and your words inside it.
What happens next? Contracts will be sent today and will need urgent attention. You will keep all the rights, we just need the right to publish the story in the book. I will also ask you if you can write a blog post to help engage the community - the post will go no this site. And again, we will co-ordinate when to buy books so we can hit the best sellers list.
Thank you also to Mark, Emma, Elinor, Lawrence and Savannah for working around the clock to make this happen.
OUTSTANDING! Publishing date of the 16th December now loking very certain.
