SOLD!!

Deep breath.  Still have goose bumps and my heart is going a mile a minute.  

I am so, so happy to tell you all that I accepted a two-book deal from Pocket Books for my urban fantasy, THE BETTER PART OF DARKNESS, and a sequel via my Absolutely Awesome Agent of Extraordinary Things, Colleen Lindsay!

I will have more to report soon . . .

Actually, you did all the hard work by writing the books.

Agents can't do anything unless they are blessed with the opportunity to work with talented writers. Writers make our jobs possible.

Congratulations!

Ooops, something weird happened.. Anyway, Way to go Kelly! Thanks for sharing the news of your success. It's very heartening to those of us still out there trying. Savor every moment!

Champagne and lavender chocolate truffles then. Mmmm, gotta get me some of those.

Kelly Gay said...

You guys are AWESOME!! Thanks so much!

NeutronJockey: I will definitely have to change my tag line!

And no champagne or cheesecake for me. It was a Hot Pocket and a Newcastle. Pitiful, I know, right? (But they were both yummy)

HOLY CRAP. Can I say that? Ha ha.

I am so excited for you! We don't know each other, but that's okay. :D I'm an aspiring author and to be told that your book is being published? I can't even begin to imagine how that must feel!
