July 17th 2019 – Book deal offer

In the last few weeks I have made 8 submissions to publishers in the hope of landing a book deal offer. Today I received an offer from the History Press at lunchtime. Another company asked for the full manuscript, and nothing have I heard from the other six. It came as a great shot in the arm. My alternative of funding a self published book via sponsorship has yielded a poor response. A contract is to follow, and although I know the money will be small, at least after all the hard work the book will see the light of day…hopefully
