My little secret

I have a secret. I have been keeping my secret since just before Christmas.

I have an agent.

Why have I kept this secret? Mostly, I think, because I didn't believe it was really happening. I needed the agreement to be signed and sealed before it would be real.

That's all done now.

My first YA novel - Sealsong - is going out to editors this week.

OMG! There's a party going on in my head!

Yay!! congrats to you. Did you keep my "next line" for your scene in the book from EE? As you surely remember, it was the "I didn't even know you could do it with a seagull" line. No, really, it's yours. Free of charge.

Congrats again, 'oala.

McKoala said...

'true, as ever, you are all heart.

Sorry, though. The seagull scene is from another story altogether...
