publishing agreement

I signed my first Publishing Agreement!

It's official! My Lizzy Gardner Series has been sold to Thomas and Mercer (Amazon).

I signed my first Publishing Agreement and it was official as of March 27, 2012!! I am unagented and therefore reported the deal on Publisher's Marketplace. The deal showed up yesterday on PM, but it says it's a four book deal. That's not's a three book deal as follows:

T.R. Ragan's LIZZY GARDNER series, featuring a private investigator known as the "one who got away" and her two young assistants, including untitled Book 3 and re-release of ABDUCTED and DEAD WEIGHT, to Alan  Turkus of Thomas & Mercer, in a very nice deal, by author.

It's a scary thing, giving up control, especially since I love having control, but from the start I said I was going to try everything and that's exactly what I'm doing. I'm waking up every morning and doing what I love best. And I'm getting paid to do it. Yay!

I am enjoying every minute of this indie journey and I can't wait to see what tomorrow will bring.

If you have any questions, feel free to ask!
