Good news!!!

Posted by houndrat on Friday Jan 14, 2011 Under writing, Young Adult

So, you know how I was MIA from the blog a lot at the end of last year?  Well, I was kind of busy. I can’t tell you HOW EXCITED I am to finally share one of the things keeping me preoccupied:


I know, right?  A BOOK DEAL?  I’m still in shock, too. But at least the PM announcement makes it feel slightly less surreal.  I’m so thankful for my wonderful agent, Taylor Martindale of the Sandra Dijkstra Literary Agency, who talked me off several ledges along the way, and Editor AwesomeSauce Claudia Gabel, who I’m so excited to work with, it’s not even funny!

Also, this book deal was a bit atypical–you may have noticed it’s not for my book I snagged my agent with–and I’m looking forward to sharing my journey to publication with you!!!  Only, I have to run around SQUEEEING a little more first!

Stay tuned…..
