I Signed My First Real Writing Contract–Photo Album

I wrote last Friday sharing that I was getting my first real writing contract. See that post for the details. Well, I signed and faxed the contract today and my husband and I documented the whole thing in photographs. Because, you know–my first real writing contract! And real cash money for my work!

I hope you enjoy the photo album below. The captions tell the story….


I’m holding the contract in my very own hands!


I’m super excited to have received this thing!


I have the contract before me and the pen in my hand…


Here I sign, I can do no other.


I’m a happy writer, today. 🙂


The contract is all signed now!


I’m handing the contract & fax cover letter to my husband, David, for him to send it from the church fax machine.


David is dialing the fax number for Pat at Augsburg Fortress who is waiting to receive my contract.


David is pressing “send” on the fax machine. This is it!


Pat at Augsburg Fortress acknowledges receipt of the contract (and a tax form).

Thanks to Augsburg Fortress for giving me my first real writing contract! I can’t wait to get started on the project!
