Success updates

Knowing that someone has a book contract is always exciting, and knowing that you in some small way had something to do with that person acquiring that contract - make it even more exciting!!!

It is with great pleasure that we update the success page today with 4 amazing successes, and let you in on the secret that 3 of them,   Georgie Donaghey,  Hélène Magisson,  and Jennifer Loakes will have books in their grubby hands before conference, so they will be on the success panel. The other one… well Megan Forward is in the draft already for 2016 CYA Conference.

Congratulations to all these beautiful talented ladies and we wish you every success in your future with your books!

Competition Update:

The entries continue to come in fast and thick from the judges, which is fabulous to see, and we are on track for getting all of those completed in time for the Final Editors to read and make their picks. So keep those fingers and toes crossed!

The invoices will be emailed out this week - so look out for them. We have had a large number of people put CASH as their transaction type, and then pay by PayPal, so you will see the shortfall this year is being requested. You will each be sent a separate ayPal request for payment email - yes they are legitimate and the CYA Conference address.

Conference Update:

With few editor appointments now going begging, it is time to get in there and book one if you want a 15 minute preread consultation. Remember the work is due at CYA’s email by 14th June 2015.

The conference is shaping up to be a big one!

Until next time, keep writing, keep illustrating and keep smiling!

CYA later!
