Secret Revealed... Honest!

I SOLD A BOOK!

Read My Lips has been acquired by Simon and Schuster's YA line Simon Pulse. Eight months after it had been subbed! Eight months! Michelle Nagler left and Caroline Abby, who replaced her, happened to come across the manuscript and loved it!!!

So I am officially a contracted author!!

Must go celebrate by doing more yard work! Spring waits for no woman, even a contracted author!

AWESOME!! I'm so glad you mentioned on my blog to come over here. I've been so busy with RWA stuff that I've had zero time to check out the blogs I like to read. Huge congrats on making that sale!

Bill Clark said...

Hi, Teri, I saw your comment on Diana Peterfreund's blog thread, so hopped over to find out more. What a great twist, having your book come out of the reject pile! Sorta like the Psalm (?118): the same stone the builders rejected is become the headstone in the corner.

Congratulations!!

(Now I gotta hop back and congratulate Diana!)
