First, let me just say thank you to everyone for congratulating me on the big news.  I am so honored to be part of this industry and writing community, and having people to celebrate news with-- people who totally get it-- means so much.

SHATTERED is a book that means a lot to me. There's something about sharing it that scares the crap out of me. I feel like I'm baring my soul or something. It's *SO* different from Prada & Prejudice that it's like debuting all over again. I'm just so thankful for the opportunity to put it out there!

Things I am also thankful for:

*Having a whole new publisher to work with! I can't wait to get to know my new editor. I have learned *SO* much from my editor at Razorbill, and I really credit her with helping me become a better writer. It should be really fun and educational to go through revisions with Brian.

*Having an amazing relationship with my agent. Sometimes I wonder if I drive her absolutely crazy becuase I email so much. But she puts up with it and supports me in all my endeavors. I feel like we have a wonderful relationship built on mutual respect, and it's a beautiful thing.

*Getting fan mail for PRADA & PREJUDICE. The ones from teens are especially adorable.

*Having a healthy, beautiful two year old. It cuts into my writing time like WHOA, but man, does she crack me up. Especially when she says, "One more time!" and shakes her finger very sternly at me. I also love how much she loves reading. Her bedroom is a picture book explosion.

Oh, fun

I turned in DRIVEN revisions today. (Driven is the romance novella for Harlequin's NASCAR continuity-- pubs in June 2010.)

26 minutes later, I received my revision letter for YOU WISH.

I guess there's no rest for the ambitious.
