Where I Stand
“Maybe” was contracted before I’d finished the first draft. I actually wrote the book under a deadline. I felt extremely lucky; most authors don’t have the security that comes with a contract whilst they write, especially those of us whose commercial success is unproven.
But things went a bit pear-shaped; it was noone’s fault, just some bad luck. So I parted ways with my publisher on good terms. We’re still friends.
That’s the story! I’m querying. Wish me luck!
