Okay so finally I was given permission by my editor to share some totally awesome news, so I totally blogged about it!

My lovely little book has been blurbed by Eoin Colfer, author of the Artemis Fowl series! If you don't know who that is, and you really should, his books sort of became the anti-Harry Potter back in like 2001 or something, with this less than typical hero as the central figure.

Anyway if you are interested, please check it out in full at my blog: www.ididntchoosethis.blogspot.com

(You guys have no idea how excited I am by all this!! Okay, actually maybe you do, if anyone would have some idea it would be you guys!)

That's awesome! The blurb is so complimentary (I suppose that is the point of a blurb, yes?) and from such a well known author.

Tremendous!

I'm waiting on pins and needles for blurbs (I've received one awesome one so far), and have been waiting for about three weeks. I'm not sure how long it usually takes writers (there were 10 or 12 on my editor's list, including Scott Turow, Steven Hall, and Joe Hill) to respond...?

Very nice touch that you blurbed the blurb on your blog. How...meta.

Thank you guys all so much! Everyone is so darn supportive here! It's just crazy because I wasn't expecting to be blurbed at all because it's a children's book, and so this came totally out of the blue. It's really awesome.

Anyway, thanks again guys!

Golly geez, we fight the kids for the Artemis Fowl books at my house. A blurb by Colfer in a tremendous coup. Congratulations!
