Signing a Contract

It’s a few days from my birthday, but an amazing present came early.

I am so excited to announce that I’ve signed a 3 book contract with Little Lamb Books for my YA superhero series!

This came about in an unexpected way. I participated in #FaithPitch on Twitter, an online pitching opportunity in July. I’ve done this before and had a few nibbles, but no real bites with either my adult suspense or my YA.

I got tagged by Little Lamb Books, and I had noticed them from the same thing the year before. I could see they had developed and grown their author list. The timing was crazy busy with a lot of family stuff going on, but in a couple weeks I was able to get their requested submission together.

After I sent that off, I was asked to call Rachel, the founder and publisher. Of course, it would just be a little get to know you session.

How could I expect to get an offer that day?

That was crazy enough, but it was also cool how God orchestrated things. Listening to Rachel, I really felt a match with her vision. She brought up things that my wife and I talked about regarding ways to promote the book.

So with a little discussion and negotiation, we ended up at this point today.

Right now the first book has the tentative title of Launch. Finalizing titles and working on edits will be the first steps. We’re looking at a 2018 release date.

I’ll be posting more updates along the road. The first details will come to my author newsletter, and you can sign up here. You can read about Rachel’s side of the journey at the Little Lamb Books announcement.

Overall, it’s the beginning of an exciting journey. I can’t wait to show you the world of Launch. It promises to be a wild ride. DSC_0689 (2)
