I won’t say or even claim that it has been easy, but I felt a little bit of relief this morning.
An invite to discuss
I received an email from my publisher to say that they had acknowledged an excellent report about the draft of my book from an independent proof reader. As a result, I have been invited to their office in Cambridge to discuss the process of publication, royalties and other associated things that need to be clarified etc.
So why the relief?
Well, when I received the email this morning there seemed to be a rush of approval, appreciation and acceptance of what I had been saying. As you know, proving your innocents is one thing but being heard is another.
From the outset I knew there was nothing for people like me who had found themselves in this predicament and so I wrote my own. This wasn’t an attempt to profit or gain from what had happened but to try and attempt to make my voice heard.
Well, today my relief was endorsed by the fact that a highly regarded publisher (Arena Books) appeared to have agreed and are willing to discuss a contract with me.
I know this blog is brief, but I felt it was/is nice to share positive news for a change. I will of course enlighten you with tomorrows developments as and when.
