...on March 4, 2010:
ACCORDING TO JANE and FRIDAY MORNINGS AT NINE author Marilyn Brant's THE GRAND EUROPEAN, the story of a conservative young woman's journey of self-discovery as she travels abroad with her adventurous aunt's sudoku-and-mahjong club, to John Scognamiglio at Kensington, by Nephele Tempest at The Knight Agency.
The copy edits for FRIDAYS are now en route to New York...I'm still working on finishing up my RITA judging (due Tuesday!), but I'm getting there...and the book proposal I've been hoping--and hoping--would get approved by my publisher just sold yesterday ;-). Thanks to my agent, my editor, my CPs/writing friends and to all of you. I can say--with nary a hint of understatement--that this has been a pretty wild week.
Also, I've had a series of questions haunting me since my first sale, almost 2 years ago: Would the second time around be as thrilling? As emotional? As anxiety producing? As overwhelming? As wondrous?
Short answer: Yep.
