Last year with the release of Panda, I redefined the type of Hubs I was writing. I wanted to create a consistent content image. So I removed all the Hubs that weren't related to programming and started focusing on programming topics that were trendy.
Anyway, last fall an acquisitions agent at a major IT books publishing house, Sams Publishing, started following my work on HubPages and contacted me with an opportunity to write a book for them. I was so ecstatic, I have only been dreaming about being a "Published Author" my whole life.
After 5 months of preparation, I had to submit three versions of the table of contents for the proposed book along with a marketing plan and sales plan, I have finally signed the contract. So if everything goes according to plan, I will be a Published Author by this Spring/Summer.
So I would like to thank HP for this fabulous venue for fledging writers and, ironically, to Google for forcing us to be better writers.
That's wonderful news! Great job and good luck with your book.
Nice! Congratulations. Good luck with this book and any that may follow it.
Congratulations! It just goes to show that hard work does pay off. Good luck with the book and the rest of your endeavors!
Congrats! I saw you mentioned this in answer to my question, too. Sounds like a really cool opportunity.
Congratulations. What an exciting thing to have happen. I'm sure it will be the first of many books for you.
Congratulation! Your story is one that brings encouragement to other hubbers. I am so glad to see this positive thread among those numerous negative ones! Have a wonderful day and best wishes for your book and future work!
Congratulations! This is wonderful news for you and for those who, as Sofs has already stated, will be encouraged by your success. I'm passing the word on...
This is a great achievement, and wonderful chance that has been bestowed on you.
Congratulations. I wish you all the best.
Congrats,on your book. Your story is inspirational and encouraging, thank you! so much for sharing it
Congrats! I'm not sure I'd be brave enough to even try if I were asked! Good luck to you.
Congratulations this is an amazing story and an excellent opportunity, I'm sure you will absolutely nail it and I hope that is the first of many for you. Good luck and keep us posted.

So I've worked on my novel for the past 3 years, finally buckled down and finished it this year. Just recently published it on Amazon Kindle, and I'm so very excited about it. The thing is, I don't know how to promote myself in the best way. And I don't have a ton of $$$ to spend on website design...

I'm in my 12th year with HubPages and just reached a significant milestone. Today my stats report went over the 3,000,000 mark and I'm doing my happy dance.

It's hard to imagine that I've been a writer on Hub Pages for 8 wonderful years. I owe my growth as a writer to many of my Hub Page friends. Loving my Hub Page life!
