Three bits of good news!
1. My fab critique group-mate, Laura Riker, has sold her book Cybernetic to Disney/Hyperion! Uber woot! Seriously, people, this book is awesome. It has beasts and deception and cool cyborg thingies. (I think I should write the jacket copy, don't you? I also think Laura needs to revive her blog so I can link her.) Anyway, I can't stress how important it is to have a good crit group. And mine (Laura, Kiki, and Ellen) is The. Best. We'll be taking over the world next. No worry. We're the benevolent despot types.
2. The super sweet Beth Revis has sold HER book, Across the Universe, to Razorbill! I haven't read this one, but it deserves special mention because Beth's so nice, and I want to read it so very bad, so I'm preemptively buttering her up. Yeah, I admit it.
3. My brain hasn't exploded. I'm pretty sure this is a good thing.
