Book Contract; Day 6 of 16 Days Campaign

The book contract from the publisher finally arrived. Yay! I've been looking forward to this moment for so long. Yet, this is also the beginning of a long frustrating time when I expect I'll work harder than I've ever had to, and maybe even wonder why I ever wanted to write a book in the first place. The contracted book is non-fiction and part of a series. The publisher is small and international.

Meanwhile, our blog party continues on Shukumisa.

Here are the blog posts for the day:

1. Pamela Moeng talks about the fact that sometimes the abuser blames the victim in her post, "Look What You Made Me Do!"
2. Ruth Israel says you could change a girl's life in "Nurturing a Parentless Generation"
3. I have a guest post on Riehl Life, talking about 'Reclaiming our pride" as South Africans.
4. Moira Richards continues her series, this time talking about "honour killings."
If you missed some of Moira's posts, you can read them here:

thank you ladies! Spent a couple of hours going through the contract. Damn, these things are tricky! It also doesn't help that I wouldn't know a clause that has hidden ramifications if it jumped up and hit me in the face. But google is my friend. Found a sample contract from Simon & Schuster and while it had terms and conditions that were irrelevant, it also had some very useful info.
