Woot! Woot!

I've been swallowed up by edits this summer
(it's a good thing, I'm learning and growing as a writer, I think..but with growth comes some challenge, right?)

and feeling a bit lazy in between those rounds of work

I wouldn't blame any of you if you forgot who I was...I've been so absent

But I wanted to give a shout out to Shelley Moore Thomas who sold her MG novel to FSG in a swinging deal...congrats StoryQueen!

and also to the talented Michelle Argyle whose novella Cinders is almost go Lady Glamis!

Is there other good news I've missed out on? Do share!



Scott said...

Glad to see you're still around! : )

storyqueen said...

Thanks for the shout-out, Tess!

So excited!


Michelle said...

I think you've kept up on the Slushbuster news. I'm deep in revision land now myself. You sound happy where you are, though!

Tess said...

Scott: is it weird to say I have missed you? or at least the giggles you regularly provide my mornings.

StoryQueen: so excited for you!

Michelle: yes, lots going on over there. All good. And, I am very happy where I am. Busy and on that learning threshold, but happy.

Michelle Davidson Argyle said...

Thanks, Tess! CINDERS is already here! So yay! And congrats to Shelley!

Scott said...

Tess - how can you miss me? We're friends on Facebook!! Ha!

Jill Kemerer said...

Woo! Congrats, ladies!

And, Tess, summer is just an animal. I always think I'll have all this time, but then I forget about those little things called kids. *sigh*

Stephanie said...

I was amazed at how much stringer I became as a writer after the editing process with my editor at Lyrical. Fingers crossed that this means for the next one we won't have quite as much to fix!! :) Good luck with your editing!! My big news...a Bitch Named Karma is now available in print!! Yippee!!

Paul Greci said...

Hi Tess,
Good luck with your edits!
And, congrats to Ladyglamis and Storyqueen!!

Davin Malasarn said...

Hi Tess! Glad you're learning. And, thanks for sharing the news about StoryQueen. That is awesome!

Cynthia Chapman Willis said...

It's always wonderful to read good news! Congrats to all!! Very happy. And I know what you mean about being swallowed up this summer. No edits for me, but still the days disappear before my eyes! Continued success with those edits.

Tess said...

Scott: yes, but I've been slacking on all fronts

Jill: kids, yes! I love 'em, they're lots of fun, but they are also consuming.

Stephanie: hope so, too...and, congrats on the print release

Paul: thanks!

Davin: it is great news for her. and, I'm being schooled and humbled and it is wonderful and a blessing.

Cynthia: thanks so much....are you having any fun adventures in those quickly passing summer days?

Corey Schwartz said...

Oh, yay Shelley! Heading over to her blog now to congratulate her!

Sharon K. Mayhew said...

OMGoodness, I had no idea about Shelley! I can't wait to go and congratulate her!
