Today I finally get to spill the beans and tell you my exciting news.
I've been waiting impatiently to be able to share, but now that the day is here, I'm actually a bit lost for words.
Here's someone else's words.
Deals from Publisher's Marketplace:
Children's: Young Adult
Terry Lynn Johnson's ICE DOGS, in which a 15-year old dogsled racer and sled dog owner loses her way on a routine daytime outing with her dogs; with food gone and temperatures dropping, her survival and that of her dogs and the mysterious boy she meets in the woods, is up to her, to Ann Rider at Houghton Mifflin Harcourt Children's, for publication in Winter 2013, by Caryn Wiseman at Andrea Brown Literary Agency (world). firstname.lastname@example.org
My novel will be a real hardcover book in two years!!!
I cannot even begin to tell you how good this feels. My dream of being published with a big publisher has come true!! And I owe much to my amazing agent Caryn Wiseman of Andrea Brown Lit Agency.
A GIGANTIC and GRATEFUL shout out to my long-suffering crit partner PAUL GRECI
who read the manuscript about 608 times without complaint.
He is beyond awesome. He is also a spectacular, uber talented writer.
Really, a writer's most important tool is her critique partners. I also have to thank
Sue Kay Quinn
Cynthia Chapman Willis
also my good friend, and not even a writer Jackie White who keeps me grounded with her honesty.
I also owe a debt to the good friends I have made this year at the ELEVENSIES
See the village of support I have? I am one lucky writer! And now, thanks to my support team, I am soon to be a Houghton Mifflin Harcourt author.
