That time I got a book deal

So … yeah. No need to beat around the bush. I have a book deal! Here, I’ll let Publisher’s Weekly tell you all about it.

 (And a HUGE thanks to Pam for forwarding me the announcement because I would have missed it)!

I’ve known about this since July, which accounts for most of the radio silence on this blog lately. You know when you have something you want to talk about SO BADLY but can’t, so you just kind of don’t say anything … ever? Yeah. That. But I can finally say that I’m so happy to be working with Marilyn and the entire Amazon team. Their enthusiasm and support for my book has been overwhelming!

Yay! Exclamation points!!

    Haha I was wondering about the lack of excessive flailing, that makes perfect sense if you’ve known about it for so long. Congratulations!!!! 😀

      Oh trust me, there was LOTS of excessive flailing when I first got word. Lots of incoherent phone calls and tears all around. 😉 Thanks for the well wishes!
