I sold my first Young Adult Novel!!!
Okay, so maybe I didn’t actually do the selling part but my amazing agent, Laura Rennert, did, in a two book deal to my wonderful editor, Gretchen Hirsch, at HarperCollins! (I know, right?) The name of the book is The Body Finder, and it will be available in stores September 2, 2009 (seriously, I can’t believe I just said that!).
Here is the link to the Publisher's Weekly article about the deal:
So, now that it’s finally ok for me to talk about this, I will be blogging about how I got the news about my book deal, what the editing process was like (don’t worry Gretchen, you were freaking awesome!), what the official launch dates for both books will be, when it will be available for pre-order (shameless plug), when the cover is posted on my website, when the reviews start coming in (crossing my fingers) and…again, I can’t believe I’m saying this…where I’ll be doing book signings next year.
I hope you all visit my blog often to say hi and to chat with me! I would love to hear from all of you!! If you have some time, check out my website and register to receive official updates! (I have no idea what an “official update” is, but as soon as I figure it out, I’ll let you know).
Thank you all for your friendship, good wishes, and support!
For those of you who are wondering, I used 20 exclamation marks to create this blog…but, really, can you blame me?
