Bloggers With Book Deals

Post placeholder image

Sometimes I feel like I am the only blogger without a book deal. Of course, I know that’s ridiculous since there are millions of bloggers out there but still after 4 plus years of pouring my heart out, I am somewhat disappointed that no publisher deems me worthy. Oh wait, maybe not! The reality of the situation is that I am finding it more difficult these days to blog in obscurity so I know I wouldn’t want to deal with the pressure that comes with being a published blogger. Well that’s what I’m telling myself anyway.

Judith O’Reilly began a web log to let off steam after reluctantly following her husband north – and was swooped on by a publisher. Here’s whyMoving to Northumberland from London was not my idea. My husband was the only one terribly keen. After a decade-long campaign he finally succeeded, and we moved in the late summer of 2005 when I was seven months pregnant with our daughter. Our two sons were two and four. When I asked my younger son what he thought he confided: “Bears might eat me.”
“There are no bears,” I told him as I looked into the darkness and the growling started.
Late last year I raised my head long enough to start a blog, wifeinthenorth.com. This is the adventure of the wife in the north as she tries to create a new life for herself and her family while her husband — irony of ironies — spends long stretches away working in London. At the end of this year we will decide whether we stay or return to the capital.
