Whew, that was some fun launch party! Lots of streamer scraps and deflated balloons around this blog today. And the celebration continues for the winner of our giveaway. The lucky teacher who has won lots of cool swag as well as a free 30-45-minute SKYPE Q&A with Lynda Mullaly Hunt is….. Bobi Martin! Congratulations!! Woo Hoo! More confetti!!
It’s a good thing this blog is self-cleaning.
I can hardly wait for the next Emu to debut! Fortunately I’ve gotten really good at waiting. As anyone out on submission knows, this publishing journey is filled with long stretches of waiting. Waiting to hear back on queries. Then waiting to hear back on fulls. Then waiting to hear back on revisions. And then hopefully if things go well… waiting on an acquisitions meeting that you maybe have a ‘really good feeling about’ but that can take weeks to hear back on. Here I vlog about the agony of waiting (with actual unretouched footage of myself waiting to hear the outcome of a certain exciting acquisitions meeting).
I’m thrilled that the waiting in this case has resulted in the sale of my newest novel, ADRENALINE, to FSG/Macmillian for publication in early 2014. Squeeee! I couldn’t be happier. Waiting for new release celebrations are the best sort of waiting.
