Except today my book deal was announced so I had a whoopie pie! (I opt for sweets over alcohol every.single.time!) And, I received these beautiful flowers from my bff and her family.
All in all, a delicious, fulfilling, humbling-beyond-belief kind of day — the first of many I’m thinking – although I’m going to save whoopie pie consumption for only the most auspicious occasions.
Here’s the official announcement excerpted from Publisher’s Marketplace:
Amy Sue Nathan’s THE GLASS WIVES, a portrait of the effects of divorce and death on the modern family unit where a woman is compelled to live with her ex-husband’s widow and her baby in order to save the home she loves, all while dealing with the scandal which erupts in their suburban paradise, to Brenda Copeland at St. Martin’s, by Jason Yarn at Paradigm.
Of course a huge thanks goes to Jason who has believed in me and my novel from Day One when I met him via a Query Tracker contest. My editor, Brenda Copeland, has enough enthusiasm for the book and confidence in me to fill a stadium.
Again, it’s all pretty exciting and very humbling. I have a feeling the best is yet to come and I hope you’ll stick around and find out right along with me.
