Hello!

This feels so self-indulgent, but I am very excited and so will post it anyway :D

I've just confirmed a two-book deal with Picador (Pan Macmillan) for my book LATKES WITH SYLVIA, which will be released in early 2015, and my second book, which I should hurry up and write.

This forum was fundamental in providing motivation and feedback and goodwill, and I am so grateful. Thank you!

Yay!

Thank you everyone! You are wonderful :D

Elaine, I can definitely inspire people to procrastinate forever while swimming in a vat of ice-cream. Is that the kind of inspiration you're after?

That's totally 100% freakin awesome & cool Anna. Proud of you.:partyguy:

Love your writing too!

I'm not an agent, but if I was, you'd be the kind of writer I'd love to rep.:Sun:

Congrats and good luck with that second book.

BTW, do you mind me asking, what's the book about? I had to Google Latkes. Never heard of the word. I figured it was something Australian, but nope, it's Yiddish for a potato pancake. Hmmm, interesting.
