A Writers’ Journey To Publication

Dreams do come true

I’m so excited. The manuscript of my novel, ‘Something Missing’ has been accepted for publication by MadeGlobal Publishing and I’m over the moon. I feel like a child on Christmas morning unwrapping something I’ve wanted for ages.  Imagine the pleasure in reading these words from Tim Ridgway,  ‘I’m attaching the contract. Can you sign and send back to…?’ Fantastic.

It all came about because my dear friend, Wendy Dunn, author of Falling Pomegranate Seeds published by MadeGlobal suggested I send the  manuscript I’ve been working on for ages to them  just in case it was what they were looking for.  Apparently all the planets aligned  and here I am on this exciting journey.

Mary Jane Neil did an amazing job designing a cover for me when it isn’t even her field of expertise. She used several old envelopes with American stamps etc. I’ve sent it to MadeGlobal for their consideration, plus they asked for a couple of extra photos.

This story, about two women, a life-altering pen-friendship and the lies they tell, has been through many reincarnations before it was finally accepted by Tim Ridgway and Melanie V Taylor at MadeGlobal . This is a predominately a Tudor England site but they will soon be branching out into popular fiction. Tonight, in London, they have an inaugural, Meet the Authors night and for those of us who can’t go they have arranged for us to join in via live streaming. Below is their invitation to join them.

Meet MadeGlobal and Authors in London – online or in person
24 September event
(5am Sunday 25th Sept if you are live streaming  in Australia)

19 of our authors will be in London on Saturday 24 September, and you can meet them in person. You’ll need a ticket, so book soon!

Can’t get to London?
Don’t worry, you can join us online through a ticketed private streaming event where you can ask questions, and you’ll enjoy the whole event from the comfort of your own home (or wherever you are in the world!)

8pm tonight, London time will be 5am here in Australia Sunday morning. Even though I’m never at my best at 5am and it’s the first time I’ve live streamed, I’ll hopefully be joining them. Fingers crossed I’m not too bleary eyed and please wish me luck that all goes to plan.

  4. This never happens in isolation and would not have happened without wonderful women like you. Mairi, remember the hours we worked together on this book? Lisa you are always supporting and encouraging writers and Jenny your enthusiasm and support has made my day. Many thanks to you all.

  6. How lovely to see you here, Susan. Your books about palliative care nursing, ‘Caring vs Curing’ and ‘Choosing End of Life Nursing’ have been absolutely invaluable. They are so interesting and thought-provoking. All the very best xx
