In today's mail arrived a check from Cambridge University Press in compensation for permission to quote a fair portion of one of my Hubs in a textbook for ESL students, on how to formulate an argument.
This has been in the works for several months, and I was told I would be paid once it went to press! Today was the day! I am stoked! This makes up for the pittance I have been making from HP directly.
Congratulations, MsLizzy! How exciting for you!
Congratulations Ms. Lizzy. I am extremely happy for you.
Congratulations, Ms. Lizzy! That is very encouraging. May I ask how Cambridge University Press located your hub? Did you send them a copy of it or did they find it online?
It is so good to hear of your success. You deserve it. Congratulations!
That's Great! You know you're doing well when someone else quotes you as an expert on a subject!
Delighted to hear your good news. I bet that made your day:)
You are my favorite teddy bear and have always been.
Great news! It's wonderful to have your work acknowledged this way.
Well done on your achievement. Very exciting news!
Wonderful News! Nothing like validation and respect! Whoo Hoo! This is also encouraging for everyone here. So happy for you!
LOL, Rochelle--nope--no homework at all. It was an opinion essay.
Congratulations! Isn't it great how they hunt for quality material online and then treat the writer fairly?
They picked up an article of mine on homelessness for use in a textbook for children 11-13 in late 2014 and they were a delight to work with. Their turnaround time from request to print is amazing and I have to say I never worked with a more pleasant editor.
I'm very happy for you and I hope it leads to even more.
Congratulations to you as well, Kylyssa, for your writing! That is very encouraging.
Awesome, Kylyssa--did you work with Joanne? She was very nice to work with.
I worked with Christina Hughes. I swear, everything she did was perfect and she left me feeling really good about the finished piece as well as the publication it went into. Our interaction was so short but she accomplished everything that needed doing in three, maybe four emails, and was unfailingly polite and respectful.
[edited to add] OMG, I'm such a dumbass! I just looked up the emails to see how many there were for sure and realized it was a different publisher entirely! It was a different educational material publisher, Cambridge Media Group.
Anyway, I'm glad you had a great experience and it's even good to find out that multiple educational publishers are making use of useful content they find online and treating those who write it well.
Definitely very encouraging to know that multiple publishing companies are seeking and finding quality writing online! Thanks for sharing.
The name sounds as though it could *possibly* be a related or subsidiary company....
I like it! Congratulations on being a writer, a lady and a scholar.
How great and we should all bear in mind that things like this can unexpectedly happen.
That is wonderful!! Is there a possibility they might commission more work from you on other topics?
Congratulations! It's great to be compensated for your hard work
This is wonderful news! And they wanted to pay you instead of taking it, is just incredible!
