Happy Release day, Cyn!

Guess what hits stores TODAY??

Once upon a time, in early 2006 or possibly late 2005, Cyn and I friended one another on LJ. (She's cyn2write , if you want to do the same!)  Back then, she critiqued THE JETSETTERS SOCIAL CLUB, and I crtiqued a hilarious MG she wrote called Me, Me, and Me. I knew when I read it she'd be published someday.

But for both of us, it wouldn't be those novels. We continued critiques, emails, and obsessive tendencies. A year passed, and the emails grew a little more frustrated, but it was amazing to have each other to bounce things off of--- when she had a really tear-her-hair-out day, I'd talk her down...and wen I wanted to scream about the rejections, she'd tell me they had no idea what they were missing.

Finally, in late 2007, Cyn scored her deal. I was so excited I literally cried. I don't think I could have been more estatic if it were me. But as the months passed, and I didn't get that call, I started to think I might get left behind. I was still happy to live the road to publication vicariously through her, but I was sad that our emails might not be as fun if all I did was whine about rejection while she talked about revision letters and covers.

Lo and behold, I sold eight months after her-- and much to my delight, we debut the same month. (Proof that every publisher   and eveyr journey works differently!)

Congrats on this day, Cyn. You deserve it! ENJOY!!
