I have some good news and have no one to share with so thought I'd post here.

I'm from an abusive background and am estranged from my family. I won't go into too much detail but to cut a long story short, reading saved my life. I read and read and read. I had one goal and that was to be a writer. I've always been very passionate about writing and wrote because I love it, never really wanted to do anything else.

I found out yesterday that a publisher wants to publish my novel. I haven't seen the contract yet so at the moment, it's not real if you see what I mean. But I needed to share the news with someone. smile

Thank you. It took me ten years to write, so it was an awful amount of work. I'm very pleased.
