But April isn’t the cruelest month after all. (My apologies to TS Eliot.)
I HAZ BOOK.
And I’m feeling incredibly fortunate.
…that I have supportive friends and family who’ve believed in me all along.
…that I attended that SCBWI conference and submitted Memento Nora to a fantastic editor at Marshall Cavendish who saw some glimmer of potential in the book.
…that I found an equally fantastic agent who fell in love with Nora, Micah, and Winter—and texted me from the bathroom of another author’s book launch to tell me so.
…that I stumbled upon a great outside-the-box publicist who saw ways to engage readers that I never imagined.
…that I’m surrounded by wonderful community of my fellow YA/MG debuts—from which came this opportunity to blog alongside four other great writers.
…for the love you guys (readers, writers, and bloggers alike) have shown so far for Memento Nora.
So long, and thanks for all the fish!
JUST JOKING! I’ve always wanted to end a post that way.
But really … Many, many thanks to everyone!
Oh, I almost forgot. The winner of the Memento Nora Challenge is:
Emily a.k.a WilowRaven
Congrats! I'll get that prize out to you as soon as I get your mailing address!
