Acceptance

Dreams

I’ve been writing since I was a child, and though I have had a few pieces published in some form or another, I had not yet achieved my dream of seeing one of my longer works published. Well, that changed recently, and I find that my mind and heart are still trying to catch up.

Enter Meryton Press

I wrote a piece of romantic fiction, a Pride and Prejudice variation called A Chance Encounter in Pemberley Woods. It was fun to write, and I quite liked the story, so I decided to try and publish it. Feeling like I had little to lose, I submitted the work to Meryton Press. You may imagine my surprise at receiving an email from them, asking for more of the work.

With my heart in my throat, I sent on the entire manuscript. When the positive response came, informing me that the editors at Meryton Press liked my work, and wished to publish it, I was thrilled. Okay, I cried. Yep, I actually started crying right there at my kitchen table.

And now…

That was a month or so ago. Since then, I’ve been working with the lovely folks at Meryton Press to edit and refine the manuscript. The whole experience has been so informative and more fun than I imagined! I can’t wait to share more details about the process. For now, I can tell you that we are in the midst of editing, and I’m enjoying every moment.

    1. Thank you!! You were the one who introduced me to the whole idea of Austen variations 💗 Next life goal: actually going to the Jane Austen festival in Kentucky. Maybe this year!
