Something "Writerly" Now


The 'good lucks' from all of you in the Land of Blog worked. So, many thanks *smile*. I had a letter today from the large print publishers. They've accepted Sunlight on Shadows. No publication date yet - hopefully it will be sometime in 2009.

Pat Posner said...

Thanks, Annie
Actually, (shhh!) I don't like bubbly. How sad is that! But I'll settle for a G&T or a coffee liqueur or maybe a Pimms.

Christina Phillips said...

Hooray! Love, love LOVE this story and soooo happy it's going into large print as well!

Annie Bright said...

Not too heavy with the tonic, eh? ;o)

Jo said...

Even the sun seems to have popped up to say well done, so I say go with the Pimms

Pat Posner said...

Thank you, Christina!
It seems like yonks since you first read it im ms form doesn't it!

Pat Posner said...

Shirley, thank you. LOL on easy on the tonic. You know my gin preference TOO well *smile*.

Pat Posner said...

Hi, Jo
Good to see you here and thanks for the congrats.
Yes, the sun is shining...now where is the Pimms!

Lane said...

Well done Pat!!! That's great news! Make your Pimms a very large one:-)

Pat Posner said...

Thank you, Lane.
It will be a very large one; it's been a while since I sold anything.

Maddie Moon said...

Woohoo! Fantastic news, Pat! Very well done.

ChrisH said...

Brilliant news, Pat! Good to read about someone's success. Enjoy it.

Debs said...

Many congratulations, what wonderful news. X

Pat Posner said...

Thank you Maddie, Chris and Debs.
Being able to share my news with all my new blogging friends (who really understand the downs and ups of being a writer) has made it even nicer.
I wish all of you a lot of 'ups' in the very near future.

HelenMH said...

Oh that is good news. Well done x

KAREN said...

Oh well done, that's great news :o)

Tam said...

Yes I can't only echo what others have said - very well done! Oh and don't drown the gin...in fact, if I can find any tonic I might join you!

Pat Posner said...

Thanks, Helen and Karen. The print in the novellas is so small it'll be good to see a nice size font.

Pat Posner said...

Tam, thank you.
You really won't need much tonic, I think 1 small bottle would last me a whole bottle of gin.

Thank you, Annie W
I hope you're getting on with your novella?

Pat Posner said...

Hi, two of my fellow witches!

Over on her blog, Annie B accuses me of nagging. Well, I think you, Amanda and Sally taught me how to nag.
You're the worst *best* Amanda, you nagged me SO much to finish Sunlight.

Pat Posner said...

Hi, Yvonne and JJ
Thank you for the congrats - I did indeed celebrate. But everybody's comments here are THE BEST celebration!

Pat Posner said...

Thank you, Weaver
I hope there will be more to come - I'm working on it *some of the time*

Pat Posner said...

Aww, Katherine
So you signed up with blogger to leave your comment here! Did Weazelbub have to help you?

As for the editor...well, I did sort of promise there'd be more books. Does that count as paying her *smile*

Pat Posner said...

Thanks, Nell
I think your very first was the PF novella, Marrying Max, wasn't it? And now you're an LBD author! So I hope I can follow in your footsteps.

Pat Posner said...

Yum, Kate, thank you.
I hope there's walnut and cream in with the coffee!
