    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 tongue)

      Kenny, I missed the picture of your kitten.  It looks like my cat, when he was younger.

    Thanks everyone.

    It makes such a difference knowing that something I write is actually going to be printed, and sit in bookshops, and be scribbled on, and bent backwards and creased at the spine!

    My regards to Kenny's kitten, too.

    If you do at least a book a year, Jenny, you will be a famous author one day. That's what Wodehouse says. Looking forward to that, cheers!

    Congrats! I need to start working on my book again. I hit a stump, and haven't really picked it up since. Plus, I like to edit on paper, and I kind of misplaced my drafts... Oops. Guess I'll be reprinting what I have again..

    Anyway. Congrats. When will it be available?

    It should be available in stores around this time next year, if all goes to plan.

    Do you think I should make a new thread about applying to be Peter's co-author for next year? Maybe people who have already commented won't be following this thread any more ...
