I Just Signed My First Book Contract!

by Nicole Trilivas


Last evening, I met my agent to sign my book contract over champagne. Carrie, my agent, has been nothing but supportive and it was so wonderful to celebrate this moment. It was a long time coming: I wrote 4 books to get here. It wasn’t an easy road, but it was a great one. I’m so excited to see GIRLS WHO TRAVEL in print, hopefully in May 2015! Carrie and I ended the night with a little stroll to L.A. Burdick’s for chocolate penguins [because I signed with The Berkley Publishing Group (a division of Penguin)].

As if the night of great food, champagne, chocolate, and conversation wasn’t enough, I ended up sitting next to lovely woman on the train home. We ended up chitchatting the whole way: she works in the wine industry and was sharing her knowledge and telling me fun stories of her travels. When she found out I was writer who had just signed my first contract that night, she pulled out a bottle of bordeaux from her bag (she was carrying about 10 bottles as she had just been to an event) and insisted I have it, in celebration! How sweet is that?!

People are so freakin’ awesome sometimes. Life is so awesome. Keep going. You’ll get there. (I’m talking to myself and you.)
