This Is Why We Do This – Congrats Maisey!

We do this so that one day we might actually be published authors. Like Maisey Yates. This damn fine woman got the call yesterday and I would just like to sent out a huge…

(no, get your mind out of the gutter)…


Presents/Modern’s brand new author is not only a very cool person but a great writer too. It’s enough to make a girl simply green… 😉

Well done, Maisey. Can’t wait until your book comes out!

  1. It is great eh, Suzanne?

    Veronica – I know, weird huh? Well, Maisey told me her ms took 18 months to make it through the process so if I ever get my call, I’m sure everyone will have long since got bored of me and gone away! 🙂

  2. What can I say? I can’t make sense of anything right now because I’m just so genuinely happy for Maisey. I’m lucky enough to be a part of her crit group and let me tell you, her writing absolutely rocks. That lady is only 23 years old and the way she can convey stuff on paper is scary. And it’s all done with just the right balance of wit. Love, love, love her stuff.
    The girl herself is quite easy to love too. And I’ll get a signed copy, woohoo!!!

    This will be you soon Jackie, I’m sure of it. Fingers crossed.


  3. Jane – she so deserves eh? Well, still waiting on that synopsis. Let’s hope it’s good!

    Aideen – I know re being 23! And with little kiddies! She rocks. And, having been lucky enough to read her writing, it IS awesome. Oh signed copy! I wonder if she sends to NZ…:-)
    As to it being me soon… Well, as long as soon is relative. Ha! ‘Soon’ in publishing could well be 10 years! 🙂

  4. Now my ears are burning! 🙂 You’re all too nice!! Jackie, Aideen, signed copies of course!!

    Aideen, you were a huge part of this getting accepted! So thanks to you!!

    We can keep the cyber party going. 🙂

    Jackie, it won’t take that long for you! I went through slush. Spent seven months sitting on a desk, so that was a big part of my wait.

  5. Ha, Maisey, you did promise to be optimistic for me so I’m holding you to that. Thanks, m’dear. And go the signed copy! You can sign it ‘youngest Presents author ever’. 🙂

  6. This is so great, being able to participate in someone else’s wonderful achievement.

    Wow, Maisey, only 23! I’m not sure I could even write joined up at that age 😉 Huge congrats, can’t wait until the book comes out.

  7. Yep! Optimism all around. For some reason I’m feelin’ it today…

    Pass me some sparkling cider (no champagne for the pregnant author!)
