I am in the throws of my vacation. It isn't a trip to Paris or laying on a beach. It is a working vacation to complete my novel. I am filling my days with yoga, family, friends... and writing.
I had to deal with a huge disappointment last month. After months of negotiations with a Chapters location (brick and mortar as opposed to on-line store!) I was going to be on the shelf. Turned out the deal with my publisher did not include the pre-requisite "book buyers return it program" necessary to be stocked on their shelf. It continues to be available on-line. I licked my wounds and vented about it on Facebook... as it turns out that was the right move, and as I've always believed everything happens for a reason.
The right person saw my post and offered an introduction to an agent. Most of you may not realize this but it is almost impossible to land an agent without an introduction. This offer is a HUGE gift from this person and the universe. Wish me well and send me positive creative vibes and the reward will be worth the energy sent!
It is imperative that I finish this piece for my own peace of mind. I'll keep you posted!
