Yippee! Woo hoo!

This bottle of champagne has been waiting around a while.  It's a little bit dusty and it was reduced in Sainsbury's when I picked it up, but hey, I'm going to drink it anyway because...
It's now official!

I can announce that Andreas and Kizzy's story will be published next year by fabulous, gorgeous Embrace Books.

Now, will someone tell me how long you can live on boiled pasta and Dolmio alone? And wine obviously.

Congrats again, Rachel. From experience, I can tell you many, many decades!

Rachel Lyndhurst said...

Oh bless you, Sally.

Not such an unfit mother then? Give it time, yes I know!

Jane Holland said...

Very glad to have you at Embrace, Rachel.

Hope you enjoyed the champers!


Rachel Lyndhurst said...

Over the moon, Jane!

Not even slightly hungover this morning--better buy some more, eh?

Hi Rachel,

Many congratulations - "Embrace" the moment!

Hee hee, the advantage of swigging champers is that hangovers always seem worth it following the joy of celebration.

Though believe it, "Hare of the dog" with champers really works!

Well, I won't be joining the ranks at Embrace - got the big R for mine: airing Rom-Com, apparently. Guess there was more to it than that, and just Jane being nice! A no seller, and damn it people itching to get their hands on it via my blog snippet "Sharing dreams blogfest" and, follow-up e-mails at that.

But hey, it's always worth testing the waters of new imprints at publishers, and having been published before I learned a long time ago to take the Rs as they come. As it is there's always the two subs elsewhere so we'll see if they get the big thumbs down, one of those drawing a lot of interest from bloggers too.

Congrats Rach, you deserve it

Rachel Lyndhurst said...

Oh Francine, big hugs on the R but keep trying--badges of honour and all that. I'm sure you'll find a home for your writing very soon, I get the impression you're a bit of a saucy one! And I owe you a big drink some time actually, I only found out about Embrace through your blog, so there we go!

Sylv, you are an angel.As always, my darling.
