This is what it looks like when a dream comes true. I can now officially announce that I’ve signed a contract with Atmosphere Press, and my coming-of-age novel Here’s Waldo is getting published!!!!! There’s still the process of development, editing, and publication ahead of us, but when that’s done, my book will be available through Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and other retailers, both in print and digital. I am honestly in shock right now, in the best possible way. It’s been 6 years since I first started writing this. I’ve put so much time and effort into this story, so much of myself into it. I was that poor kid living in the torn-up part of town. I was that young man struggling to make it in the world, and now I’m about to be a published author. A novelist. This is surreal. Dreams really do come true. To everyone who has read drafts of this over the years, followed along with all of my posts and updates, and given their support: thank you, thank you, thank you!!!!!!
