Got the word from my agent that I can now officially share the news . . . I sold a book!
The Last Great Getaway of the Water Balloon Boys, my young adult novel about two teenagers who steal their principal’s car and end up on a life-changing road trip, will be published by Simon and Schuster. Edited by David Gale. Expected publication date of 2010. Kudos to my fabulous agent, Rachel Vater at Folio, who’s been great through this whole process.
You can read more about the book here. In the coming months, I’ll add sample chapters and other tidbits to the page. I’ll also have some more Mutterings about this whole process down the road a bit. But for now I just want to say one thing.
