For Writers, Hashtags are the New Glass Slippers (My #adpit Success Story)
At least, that's how I like to think of pitch contests. Then again, I have a little girl who is really into princesses, so maybe I have a bit of a one-track mind right now.
In my case, a recent #adpit contest did have a fairytale ending. The fabulous Kara Leigh Miller saw my pitch and, after reviewing a partial, requested my full manuscript.
When I received notice that Anaiah Press would be offering me a contract for publication, it was exactly how I had always imagined. (You know, little cartoon birds fluttering around to lots of whimsical music.) In all seriousness, Kara was extremely professional and enthusiastic about my manuscript. Therefore, I am thrilled to announce that I've signed with Anaiah Press for my next title, Tess in Boots, a contemporary romance scheduled to be released in January 2015.
I know the manuscript is in very capable hands, and I can't wait for this next chapter to unfold!
