I Interrupt My Brain Eating Post to Announce.....

PIVOT POINT is going to be published! I SOLD MY BOOK!!! Well, I didn't sell it, my agent, Michelle Wolfson, did because she is amazing! I don't have a lot of specifics right now and my head is spinning and my brain (which really feels like it has been eaten) is still wondering if it's true (especially after my agent played a prank on me this morning), but I am so incredibly happy!

The things I do know are: I want to marry HarperTeen, I want to kiss editor Sarah Landis (and just might so she better watch out when we meet), and I get to write a sequel!! Wahoo!!!!!!!!!! I'll have more details in the coming weeks. But I am so happy....have I already said that?

  11. Insert here praise, adulation and copious amount of girly screams and laughing and joyful dancing. Add to that a couple of pesky text messages from my husband to your zombie killing iphone and about four phones calls to rehash what had already been hashed and you will have the very beginning of my celebrating over this awesome news!!! YOU ARE AMAZING!! And Michelle and Sarah are brilliant for recognizing just how amazing you are. Little do they know they've barely scratched the surface!!
