From the end of September to mid-October, I mentioned that I was working on a proposal for a travel guide in several of my posts. I mentioned it so often, in fact, that I have no doubt my gracious readers grew tired of hearing about it. But, as some of you might know, putting together a book proposal is no easy feat – especially when you’re competing against an author who’s previously written about the region in question.
Well, without revealing too many details, I’d like to share a little good news. Last week, my acquisitions contact at Avalon Travel informed me that she’d chosen my proposal to submit to the acquisitions committee, which she’ll be doing later this week. So, that’s one hurdle tackled – I just hope the committee likes my proposal, too. After all, I'd like to have some even better news next week!
