Wherein I Announce My Publishing News, SQUEE a lot and Abuse the Use of Exclamation Marks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I can't believe it! It's been such a long, hard, difficult journey, but I'm thrilled to announce that I have a publisher!!!

My first book - CINDERSKELLA - a Middle-grade humorous fantasy, written with my co-author, my co-hort and my friend - my 12 year old daughter, Bethanie, will be published by Jolly Fish Press fall 2013!!!

I can't even begin to express my excitement!!!!!


*jumps up and down*

*falls on floor*

*checks pulse*

*yup, I'm still alive*

Thankfully, Bethanie's "Happy Dance" best sums it up:

Good thing she keeps me grounded, because I was running around, screaming, crying and being, well, basically, a total and complete spaz. And let me tell you, you really don't want a video of that.

Here's the official press release from Jolly Fish Press:
