I *kinda* did it again…
(You can see the complete article HERE)
I know–it's totally unexpected. Believe me, I was just as surprised as you. In fact, I'm probably the most accidental YA author EVER. But … it's really happening. The book is already written and edited–and I promise I will tell you more about how that all played out in another post, when my head isn't spinning so much.
It's funny. I thought announcing the news would be less emotional this time, since I just did this a few months ago for my middle grade series. But that actually makes it MORE overwhelming.
I am so humbled and stunned that I get to share both of my series with the world–and that I get to work with my incredible editor on both of them. In fact, I get a little teary every time I really let myself think about how amazing that is–and believe me, no one is more grateful, or shocked, than me.
My sincerest thanks go to Laura Rennert for always believing in me and working tirelessly to help get me to this point. HUGE thanks also must go to Liesa Abrams–and Simon & Schuster–for trusting me enough to buy so many of my books. And of course I also have to thank all of you, for your unfailing support and enthusiasm. I'm so honored to have you all along with me for this crazy publishing ride. (Strap yourselves in–the next year is going to be CRAZY!)
And… I'm starting to sound like a lame award show acceptance speech (and I'm getting a bit choked up, typing this) so I'm going to stop here for today. But I'm SO glad the news is FINALLY out there. I've been stuck sitting on the secret since July. (yes, JULY!!!!)
So *phew*–I don't have to keep quiet anymore. Once again I made it through the endless waiting without leaking anything important. It was torture, you guys. TORTURE.
