And So It Begins

Well then.

I received my contracts just now for all four books in my space opera series, and by so signing have committed myself to four or five years hard labor in the spice mines of my soul. I’m kidding. I couldn’t be happier with how my career is going. Like I said in my last moon-faced post, this is all I’ve ever wanted, all I’ve dreamed of in life (except maybe for love and unlimited new Star Wars movies from now until I die. One of those came true).

But it’s done. Or it’s started. Hard to say which is more true, now I stop to think on it. In any event, I am now–by all the measures of gods and men (or at least legally speaking)–an author.

Couple other life updates! My revised draft is due to my wonderful editor, Sarah Guan, by June 30th, so I’ve battened down ye hatches and gotten to work. These days, that means working 9-5 for Baen Books and then hurrying home to crank out 2000 words for DAW.

Also on the subject of work, I have at last quit waiting tables at the Casa Carbone. I’d worked their nearly seven years, since about this time in 2009. Now that I have a proper job and a book deal, it seemed that it was time to move on. There’ve been a lot of changes in the past couple of months. Only 4 months ago I was just a student, waiting tables and waiting for graduation. It’s weird how quickly things change.

Anyway…back to work.
