Five Years Later – Celebration Time

Yes… today in 2011 this blog saw the light of day!

The main reason, at that stage of my life, for starting a blog was to support my soon to be published first novel. The first category I created for the blog was AJ’s Novel. Now I’ll have to amend that to AJ’s Short Story!

Yes, a week or so ago the publisher’s contract arrived in the post. They’d accepted my submission so, after many years of writing we have a physical hard copy contract in hand! I say we because the good lady is my editor in chief.

Really what it all means is that one must


So after a week short of five years of daily posts where the blog took on a life of it’s own I may eventually begin telling you how the whole publishing process is going! At last… really a dream come true!

Yes... it's true!! A real contract!!!! There are a few T&C's to iron out but it's real!!!
