Not sure how many of you saw this yesterday when it went live, but I am so amazingly proud and thrilled to repeat it here. My friend, CP, loyal mentor, shenanigan-sharer--and one HECK of an amazing writer--the fabulous Ms CJ Redwine made an EPIC ANNOUNCEMENT.
Here it is, straight from Publisher's Lunch:
CJ Redwine's THE COURIER'S DAUGHTER, a YA fantasy debut in which an independent girl sets out to rescue her father from the Wasteland outside their cloistered city and in the process finds danger, heartbreak, and a new romance with her father's apprentice, to Kristin Daly Rens at Balzer & Bray, at auction, in a three-book deal, by Holly Root at Waxman Literary Agency
*Tosses BUCKETS of sparkles everywhere*
If you don't know who CJ is, I STRONGLY suggest you hop over to her blog and click the follow button, stat. Not only is she one of the kindest, funniest, most supportive people I've had the pleasure to meet--but dang can that girl write. And as someone lucky enough to have read THE COURIER'S DAUGHTER (Na Na Na Na Na Boo Boo) (ahem) I can tell you for a certainty that her book will knock your socks off when you can finally read it. I have no doubt it's going to take the publishing world by storm.
Huge Congrats, CJ--if you've dug your way out of the flood of support and found time to read this. It could NOT happen to a harder working, more talented, more deserving person. So glad you can finally quit the day job and focus on being a mom and writing full time. I can't wait to read all the books you have yet to write (and uh, you BETTER still let me be your CP!)
If you'd like to congratulate her yourself, you can find her announcement HERE.
