( 2:38 PM ) Rebecca
I have some good news for you. I do not want to brag. I do not want to gloat. I do not want to prance around the rainy streets of Seattle, exulting because after years of hard work and frustration and discouragement and rejection and perserverance:
I SOLD MY BOOK. TO RANDOM HOUSE.
Look at me - I am so calm. Sitting here in my windowless office telling you that I SOLD MY BOOK.
Thank you mom, dad, Li'l Sis! Thank you all you noncommital boys - you know who you are! Thank you Geeksoft for letting me come in at noon! And thank yooooouuu you-know-who for begetting The Great Unpleasantness and the ascendancy of Breakup Babe. I never knew how well I could write until I got my heart smashed into a zillion pieces, thenn stepped on, and ground into dust (then again, you always did believe in me when I didn't believe in myself).
No! I'm not gloating! Really.
Oh, and you, readers, thank YOU for tirelessly reading, commenting, and making me feel kick-ass about myself (except when you were insulting me). This book is going to be a lot about you, and you better believe that! And most of all, I'd like to my fabulous agent, and of course, Random House!
More details to come.
