Two things, actually. Two.
The first thing is that by this time tomorrow, I’ll be in Savannah and it will be awesome. Not only will I have the pleasure of meeting fellow authors , , , , , , , and , but I hear there will be food there. And Spanish moss, and possibly ghosts. Also, I understand there’s a beach. (For those who may not be truly familiar with the great paradox that is me, I hate water, but I love the ocean.)
The second thing is . . . I have a book deal!!!!!!
It’s with Razorbill, an imprint I have coveted for a long time to an obscenely covetous degree, and while I’m completely unable to express myself clearly, I can still communicate by pasting the PW announcement here:
Lexa Hillyer at Razorbill acquired the debut novel FE by Brenna Yovanoff at auction during BEA. The book tells the story of Malcolm Doyle, who seems like everyone else in his perfect little town, but he has a secret: he is a Replacement, left in the crib of a human baby 16 years ago. Now the dark side wants him back and he must decide where he really belongs. Pub date is fall 2010. Sarah Davies of the Greenhouse Literary Agency was the agent.
That’s about me!
Also, my fabulous and . . . what’s another word for fabulous? My super-fabulous agent, Sarah Davies, gives an account on her blog.
So, uh. You should check it out. Yeah.
