I am officially a Tricycle Press author!

At last, after very long negotiations where my wonderful agent Jodi Reamer earned every single penny of her commission, I am thrilled to announce a sale! Tricycle Press just bought my middle grade verse novel HUGGING THE ROCK which they want to bring out fall of 2006.

I'm doing the happy dance!

Write on right now.

Oh, I''m jealous, jealous, jealous! I saw their booth at IRA and decided they were in my publishing future. Wait for me, I still plan on filling out your reader survey, I've just been too swamped as of late.

Oh, and congrats! Can't wait until I can blog the same thing. Now, tell me: how long from start to finish did this take.

Thanks so much everyone! It is such fun to be able to share this with so many people.

Don, it took a while. I finished the first version of the book November 2002. The deal came July 2005. In-between there I changed agents, revised the manuscript twice more,and bit my nails, a lot. Tricycle had the first version of the book for over a year.

It's worth it. Really it is. And I am so excited that Tricycle is only about an hour away from me.

Keep believing in the dream.

Write on right now,
Susan
