Happy News!

This is my friend, Renee:

She is awesome. Yesterday you might have seen this news:

Debut author Renee Collins' RELIC, pitched as True Grit meets The Prestige, set in a world in which the remains of long-extinct magical creatures are mined and traded on the black market in the red rock desert of the Colorado Territory for their residual magic powers, where a young girl must learn how to harness the power of relics and forge a risky alliance with a local land baron in order to survive, to Stacy Abrams at Entangled, by Mollie Glick at Foundry Literary + Media.

This is awesome. I love it when awesome people and awesome news come together in one big awesome explosion. 

I just wanted to say, congratulations to Renee! She has been my critique partner, and good friend, for the past several years and always has excellent insight and encouragement. I've also had the privilege of reading her books and she is very talented. I'm so excited RELIC sold and I can't wait for you all to read it. It's truly an amazing book! Drop by her blog to congratulate her if you get a chance. 

Also, if you're in the mood to drop by other blogs, I may or may not have a vlog up on Friday the Thirteeners right now where I embarrass myself again.


  1. Yay for Renee and awesome explosions! We've had a few of those around here lately. They make me happy. :)

  2. Yay!!! I've been following Renee's story just as she got an agent (or right's been so long, I can't remember). I'm SO excited to one day get to read Renee's book! *snoopy dances*

  3. I'm so happy for Renee! And I'm excited to read her book which sounds completely original and amazing. Now to go see you embarrass yourself...

  4. That sounds fantastic! How great to be reminded, yet again, that there IS room for debut authors in publishing.

  5. Kasie! How did I not notice this before?? I guess I can blame it on a certain book that had me glued to my laptop every spare second. :)

    Anyway, thank you so much. You're a wonderful friend. I feel truly lucky to know you. You're the best!
