My Amazing News!

Wow. I can't believe I'm actually writing this post, guys. It's one of those key moments that every bright-eyed newb writer dreams of. I'm sure, years ago, I would have planned a long, gushy post, adorned with many exclamation points and PHRASES IN ALL CAPS to relay this news.

Today, I find myself at a lack for words. So I'll let Publisher's Marketplace do the talking for me:

  I'm just so grateful. Grateful, happy, thrilled, and rather moved, actually. (Tears may have been shed in the writing of this little post.) In the coming days, I'll write more about getting to this moment. Though, I do have to include one of my other favorite key moments in this post. The contract signing photo! My favorite!

Huge congratulations to you! That is so exciting! I've heard amazing things about Entangled, and I'm sure they'll do your book right. Oh, also - I love your premise. Sounds like a wonderful book.

P.S. I had to laugh at the contract signing photo. I did that with my how-I-got-my-agent post, and I got teased about it (mostly by my husband, who took the picture), but it was such a fun, giddy moment that I HAD to document it on film. Or, well, pixels, since we haven't had a film camera in years.
