Title: EXCITING NEWS! I Have a Three-Book Deal
Post by: PatEsden on August 25, 2014, 08:23 AM

So after all the years I've spent hanging out on the boards, I'm not posting my debut novel sale on the kidlit good news thread.  I'm as surprised as anyone. 

I'm freaking overjoyed to share the official Publisher's Weekly announcement: http://www.publishersweekly.com/pw/by-topic/industry-news/book-deals/article/63763-book-deals-week-of-august-25-2014.html

If you'd like to know how this unexpected twist in my writing career happened over the last few weeks, check out my celebration blog post: http://patesden.blogspot.com
