I am very excited. On Friday, I'll be driving down to Portland to meet up with cyn2write , my critique partner of a few years. We met at this time last year--for the first time--and things looked so different then! We were both agented but had more than a few rejections between the two of us (I was about to get my 28th rejection).
Now? We have five books under contract! She has three with Delacorte, including her debut FAIRY LUST, which sold in a pre-empt, and I have two with Razorbill! YAY!!
Plus, added bonus: Powells Books is only about 6-7 blocks from her hotel, so we can go be dorks and see where our books would go.
