Signing on the line

Yesterday I signed a contract with a US literary agency and put it in the post. Once I've got the counter-signed copy back I'll say a bit more (not that I'm paranoid or anything). I'm really pleased with this, and hopefully it will lead to good things. The agency has a great stable of writers, and if nothing else, if it enables me to meet and chat with them that would be great. The journey to the contract offer was started by a short story submitted to a flash fiction challenge organised by Jason Dukes and hosted by Paul Brazill - thanks guys. Who would have thought that Harry and Pete's first outing would deliver this opportunity? We'll see where it leads ...

That is so cool. I think sometimes we think we have to make a big splash when all we really need is a little one to get going.

I look forward to hearing more about it.

Well done Rob. It is nice to get some good news from Ireland.

Let's hope it's not Inkwell, Rob.

Thanks, everyone. We'll see where it goes. I'm not familiar with Inkwell.
