For those who didn't read the "where else do you write" thread, I have been waiting to hear whether I will have a book actually published by someone real, and I just heard today that I got the deal!
The best part is that the bulk of the slogging through reams of previously written stuff, editing, formatting, chasing up interviews, and so on, will be done by a professional writer with years of experience, so I won't have to become a hermit for two years.
The book will be called Raising Entrepreneurs, and will focus on teaching kids about money and business. All profits will go to microfinance charities. (Don't know what they are? By some weird co-incidence I have just answered a request on that topic! http://hubpages.com/hub/Best-Value-Plac … nate-Money)
Serendipity, co-incidence, or opportunity-meets-preparedness? I'm not sure, but at this point, I really don't care!
Colour me happy (and I'll spell it MY way this time )
Take note - Peter will be doing this again next year, and he's taking applications now. If you're a keen writer and you're happy to donate the proceeds of your book to charity, hop on over and look at the submission guidelines.
P.S. Feel free to leave a comment on his blog telling him what a great thing he's doing

Normally, I don't do self promoting crap like this because I feel it promotes ego and this sense of rubbing things in others faces. Which is why I don't do stuff like this. However, after thinking about it,...
