Making The Call

I'm not there yet, but I was wondering today about my fellow writers, aspiring and published, what was your "making the call" to tell people you got a "deal." I've thought about this a lot. Here's mine, in order

  1. My wife.
  2. My mother, who will in turn tell my brother and sister.
  3. My father.
  4. Wife's grandmother.
  5. Mine and my wife's aunts, uncles and cousins via mass text message or email.
  6. Betas and writing supporters. (Y'all know who you are.)
  7. Some close friends, either email or text massage. When I know they all have found out, then I got to #8.
  8. Facebook/Twitter friends.
  9. Blog entry for the whole world.
So, what's your order?

I haven't got the call for a book deal yet, but I have been paid for writing. Usually when I tell my family I got paid, they respond with "Can you make al iving off of it?" I say I should be able to and their answer usually is "...Okay. Call us back when you actually are making a living."

So there is that.

Probably no one. I'd assume it was a trick until I saw the book in print. Then I'd direct them to the book in stores and online!
