I have some big news to share with you today:
Morgan James Publishing will release an expanded edition of my book A Couple with Common Cents in 2016!
How did I do it?
Author Gets New York Publishing Deal on First Try Without an Agent or Written Proposal
It all started nearly one year ago. I went to a workshop in Denver, Colorado and met a New York Times bestselling author there. I took copies of this book to give away to all participants.
This author (Joel) really liked A Couple with Common Cents and said on the second day,
Ryan with Joel Comm, November 2013
“It’s time to take this to the next level. Let me introduce you to my publisher.”
I was blown away. Here was a business author whom I highly respected, treating me as a peer.
But I didn’t expect Joel to reach out to me like that.
Not to a self-published author like me.
Not for a little book that’s not even 100 pages long.
Those things didn’t matter. Joel, as a serial author, knew what to look for and knew that my values and style would be a good fit for Morgan James.
And he was right.
