I can't believe I'm posting here! I sold a NF sub to Highlights Hello and signed the contract with them today. I'm super excited as this is my first ever sale...

Thank you to all the people who have been so helpful here. I wouldn't have been able to make it without SCBWI :)

Thank you Jayca, Vijaya, Schriscoe and Sue G.

I've heard that the acceptance to publication time can be pretty long with Highlights. I don't know how much of a wait I have ahead of me. Nevertheless, I'm excited. Thanks again!  :)
