 :thankyou :grouphug2 You guys are the best!!! Thank you so much for all the congrats and love and for everyone reading my blog post and for those that commented on my blog and yep now I am all sniffly and rambling.  :love5

This board has been such an inspiration to me for all these years. I am so excited to have all of you join me in celebration! And I have met so many wonderful friends and CPs from here.

To my dearest and closet CPs an extra thank you from the bottom of my heart! Love you guys!

Stephanie, (Hey Louise:)) I do believe that cliff has been calling our names for quite a few years now and I would have never made it without you. You have been there for me through all the great times and the bad in both writing and in life. :love5


Sarah, I can't thank you enough for everything you have done for me over these last few years! Writing and in life, I cannot imagine a day without you! Boy am I so thankful that your son is a Boy Scout and that we connected to become besties!  :love5


Jessica, OMG I cannot thank you enough for the countless times you critiqued this little race car and helped me to FINALLY understand that darned ole meter :) He wouldn't be vrooming to first place without you that's for sure!  :love5


Lori, You are such a dear friend to me and I am truly blessed to have you as a friend and CP for quite a few years now. Ha! We are getting old. Nah. We will be like my dad always said, Stop having birthdays and you never get older. I eventually passed him when I turned 38 :)  :love5


PJ You! I owe so much to you! You are so giving of yourself and I cannot thank you enough for the referral to Jessica! WOW were you right when you said we'd make a great team. And I am so tickled that you are my agency sister!  :love5


Sue Thank you so much for all of your kindness and love over the years! Your emails are always inspiring and uplifting and you are always there for me.  :love5

And to all of you BBers! You guys  :yourock :grouphug2

I placed this Race Car on here for critique early last year and the amount of help I received was phenomenal! Thank you to all of you.

Yep Lill! You are right! Thank you for all of your help with Race Car! I truly appreciate it!

And last but certainly not least. THANK YOU VERLA for creating a safe place for all of us to come and have fun, be silly, and learn TONS of info. We are so lucky to have you!!!!

And if I missed anyone please know I didn't mean to and I  :love5 you!

 :car :car :car :car SO cool!  I didn't even know there was a car on here! :)  :car

Sharon and I connected through Write On Con last year. I had just started writing picture books, my Mom had just passed, and I was really down in the dumps. Sharon's encouragement kept me going through a lot of lumps and bumps. When I read RACE CAR then, I knew it was special. I am so thankful that our mutual dream agent Jessica saw it too. I knew RACE CAR would sell---but how fast it sold, I think it took us all by surprise, and happily so. I've been busting a gut! Sharon's story is a perfect storm---the right story being pitched to the right person at the right time. It can happen, and it can happen to you.

And don't forget--this is a TWO BOOK DEAL. You can't ask for better than that.

Ooh, I just saw this on Children's Bookshelf, like Vijaya did! Sorry I missed your announcement earlier, Schriscoe, but I love the story of your sale. It sounds like such a great book---no wonder you had two offers! Congratulations!
