It is fucking FREEZING here!
Ooh I'm getting my very own PROJECT at work
AND ABOUT FUCKING TIME TOO
I'm about to lose my job!
Shit, what's happened?
I think I'll wait! Better to do that than pull a Mel!
Darling, the whole thread is titled in your honour, it would hardly be pulling a Mel!
Why? Will you get a pay-off at least?
Seeing as Ag has disappeared...
I just sold a book to a pretty big publisher.
BRAVO MISS BEV!
Oh fuck it, I forgot that it should have been BRAVA
Thanks Aunty Lolly and Aunty Clara!
I'm mostly very embarrassed about it!
I suppose it's too much to hope it's a bodice ripper?
Is it something academic or a sizzling romp featuring constant scraps between breasty nymphomaniacs intent on getting the diamonds from a very handsome and obviously very rich Bulgarian prince?
It's a piece of non-fiction. But if it goes well, I'm hoping to sell some fiction next. My strategy was to get my name out there with something clever, and sell the stories off the back of that.
Sounds to me like you're going to love my fiction.
I know I don’t really know you from Adam or Eve (such is the way of the chat lounge) but I am most proud
Zu-K, you really are the tits <3
Nice one! Congrats!
When will it be released?
I should have time to read it by then!
That's amazing, congratulations!
2021 is quite a while to wait!
wow, Bev, that is huge! imagine seeing your own name in print in a bookstore. chills! get your author page up on Goodreads
Congrats Bev, that is wonderful news
You better sign my copy!
Thanks ladies. I don't really know how to deal with it. I think I'm worse now that everybody knows.
I know I need to shut the fuck up, but still. Telling people has made me so anxious. WHY AM I SO BRITISH
Aaaw! Try to enjoy it, you earned it and deserve to enjoy the praise! Sorry for sounding a bit American self help.
I've just got home to an unsolicited copy of Wetherspoon News.
I think I'll put the house on the market tomorrow.
I saw a stack of newspapers in the shopping centre and picked some up as I needed it for vegetable waste at home. I didn't realise it was the Jewish times.
Is the Duke of Edinburgh IMMORTAL?
@Beverley congratulations habibie! Hope it ships to Singapore because I'm buying a copy
How exciting - and since bookshops are apparently the only retail stores IMMUNE to the internet, you’ll definitely see it on the shelf!
I'm sure it'll be fine, it's just that your sprouts will be kosher.
Well done Sheikha Bev!
