There is nothing to compare with the unforgettable feeling that comes with getting a book contract.
Your first baby perhaps? Jeez I didn't know it would be that painful - is not the same – unforgettable.
Nor is the first time you fall in love – that glowy radiance from the first kiss and the delights of the fumbled follow up, haphazardly undertaken by your first lover, just don't compare.
Getting your first car and the freedom of 4 wheels – just ain't the same as the elation from an email saying, we'd love to publish your novel The Warlock's Woman.
Getting the yes for my second novel, Half Blood, no less a brilliant thrilling sensation - and I'm sure as my published works increase in number it will always be the same unforgettable.
