Secret's finally out

I thought of how I could tell my friends that didn't know that I wrote about my book and I decided that the "just spit it out and let them deal with it" approach was best - so that's what I did. I have to say that everyone has been so supportive, some were really interested, some wanted to know what the book was about and one wanted to know why I kept my ambition a secret. The answer I gave him was that if people that I actually physically know ie. colleagues, neighbours etc. didn't know then I wasn't putting pressure on myself to succeed all the while I got love and support from the like minded souls that I'd met in cyber-land. Best of both worlds really.
I'm at a bot of a loss at the moment. I'm working hard on NRIMH but I don't know what happens now to BTL. I imagine that my baby is out there being primped and prepared to go out in the world but I don't know how the publishing thing works. I'm sure they are looking after my baby but just like my sons I'd like to hear about them/from them from time to time.

Perhaps have a chat to your publishers and ask them what the process is? My publishers take about 2-3 months from the time I send them the ms to edit and do maps etc but I would imagine it's different for every publisher. Organise a launch date - if possible with someone else i.e. an artist? That's what I've done in the past. If you'd like to email me please do - Good luck! X

Thanks for that. I have emailed the publishers to ask them about the process. I may well be contacting you, thanks for the offer.
