BIG NEWS

At last, I can write the blog post I've been dreaming of for years and years:

Yesterday, I got a basket for my bike!!! Yes! It's something I've always wanted. It makes my back happier, and it's cute.

Oh, that's not what you wanted to hear? Ok... How about:

I AM GETTING PUBLISHED!!!!!!!!



Before I go any further, here's the blurb from Publisher's Marketplace:

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Amber Lough's THE FIRE WISH, in which an unwilling princess betrothed to
the caliph's son captures a jinn and makes a wish to go home, but is instead
transported to the fiery realm of the jinn, while the young jinn who granted
her wish is magically bound to take her place in the royal court of Baghdad,
to Diane Landolf at Random House Children's, in a two-book deal, for publication
in Fall 2014, by Laura Rennert at Andrea Brown Literary Agency.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Laura did a great job with the blurb! And I'm getting published! By Random House!
I can't stop the exclamation marks! I get my Editorial Letter TODAY!
I have to write a sequel before August 1, 2013! My book comes out in two years! 

Ok. I'm done.

No, wait. No I'm not.

Great news! I've visited your blog before but not in a long time. Saw the news on the Verla Kay Boards.

So awesome for you!

Congrats!
