Happy Anniversary, Little Book

One year ago TODAY, my book sold to HarperCollins.

One year ago TODAY, my dreams came true and my hard work finally paid off…

But it couldn’t have happened without my amazing, AMAZING agents: Sara Kendall and Joanna Volpe.

 So thank you…

For understanding Eleanor and the Spirit-Hunters from the beginning.

For finding the perfect home for my book.

For answering all my stressed-out emails without complaint.

For being my “knights in shining armor” when I needed it.

And for being really all-around really cool gals.

Happy Anniversary, Something Strange and Deadly.*

And to all you aspiring writers out there: DON’T YOU DARE EVER GIVE UP. Dream as big as you can dream because I promise you’ll get there. Seriously: if I can do it, then anyone can.

*Yes, I am totally anthropomorphizing my books. I CAN’T HELP IT. I am a writer, my brain is overactive.
