Dude...can I get a FINALLY and a few heck yeahs?!
And there is more good news! I'm getting published with Flux! Who I think is the perfect fit for this edgy, male-protagonist, YA thriller. For reals.
Here is my Publishers Marketplace announcement to prove I'm not making this shiz up:
J.R. Johansson's INSOMNIA, about a teen boy who thought spending every night trapped in other people's dreams was bad, but discovers that losing control of his own body and mind is so much worse, to Brian Farrey at Flux, ina two-book deal, for publication in 2013, by Kathleen Rushall at Marsal Lyon Literary Agency (NA).
Foreign: Taryn Fagerness Agency
Film: Brandy Rivers at Gersh
And still there is more awesomeness...
I know what you're thinking: It's not possible.
I tell you: Yes, my bloggy friend. Yes, it is.
And then we eat cupcakes...
Oh wait, I forgot to tell you the more awesomeness! Here it is:
As of right now, my debut novel is scheduled to be published in Spring/Summer 2013 -- wait for it -- in ALL THREE COUNTRIES! Yep. In Italy, Germany, and the U.S. at the same time!
Whoa. Just reading that paragraph makes me dizzy, or it could be from me screaming and jumping up and down...Nah, I think it's the paragraph.
Does it get any better? I think not. May the glee and hyper-ness I am feeling be contagious! :) Seriously. I feel so blessed.
Check back on Friday if you're interested and, assuming I've calmed down a bit, I'll tell you about my road to publication and the ups and downs of doing it backwards. :) Huzzah!
