It's finally my turn to say this: My book is getting published!

I've known about this for two weeks, but was supposed to keep my lips shut until the official announcement. So thanks to Perks for letting me know that it appeared in Publisher's Marketplace!

Quote:
Ramsey Hootman's COURTING GRETA, about what happens when two people who don't believe in romance give love half a chance, and the freedom that comes with letting go of every last scrap of pride, to Micki Nuding at Gallery Books, by Jim McCarthy at Dystel & Goderich Literary Management (World English).
I owe a huge thanks to everyone here at AW. I've been here for upwards of five years now, and seen tons of you folks land your own amazing deals one after another. I've often wondered when it would be "my turn." Part of me honestly didn't believe this day would ever come. But it has. Thanks for all the advice, camaraderie, and support.

Thank you everyone!!!

I'm not sure whether it's fate or irony or fitting that I went to sleep with this news and woke up to find that my first and greatest literary hero, Ray Bradbury, has passed away. A bittersweet joy.
