Oh My God, I got The Call
December 29, 2005 | Hot Damn
I am in utter shock. Yesterday at 12:31 central standard time I opened my emails to find Terese Ramin from Triskelion Publishing offering me a contract for my latest work, Teddi Turns On. Tears ran down my chubby cheeks as I whooped and stamped my feet right before I jumped around my little office like a crazed Samoan at a fertility ritual. Without hesitation I emailed Terese a resounding YES!!!! and I would send a proper acceptance once my mind reconnected with my body.
Unfortunately the “B” was at work so I could only leave her a message on her cell phone as I pounded out an email to Studly. Then I had to plague Beth and Yasmine, my CPs, right before the Brazen Vixens were notified of my great news. All of these people have been so supportive I felt it was important to let then know their time and effort hadn’t wasted. Each and everyone was elated and wished me well.
Today my throat is still sore from screaming which became a croak when I opened another email from Terese with my contract. Of course the ferility dance got kicked up a notch. But I’m now back on level ground and ready to greet this new pase of my life with joy.
What a year. I have a daughter who is proud me, a man who truly loves me, granddaughters and a son-in-law who think I’m cool, and a contract with a respected publisher. God has given me more than I could ever want wrapped into one awesome year.
May 2006 bring you all your most pleasant surprises and the happiness you need.
