you know, as you do, and I had an idea for a book. About a teenage girl and her dead boyfriend, to be precise. And also about the things we do in the name of love, and the things we're capable of, good and bad, even when we're still figuring out who we are. 

And as of today, HarperTeen bought it! With a second book to follow! I'm still a little shaky, and mostly convinced that I was at some point doing the good drugs and hallucinated the whole thing, but others assure me that it's true.

The tentative plan is that the first book will probably be released in hardcover in fall 2011. Meanwhile, I have to finish writing it. I should probably get started on that.

Also on ordering flowers (or, like, A PONY) for my awesome agent, and for my brand-new editor.

WOOOOOOOOOOOT!!

I suggest chocolate-dipped Cabana Boys as agent gifts. ::nods::

How cool that we sold on the same day? I only hope we release around the same time so we can plan lotsa mayhem!

It was clearly in the stars. Or something. ;-)

I think my agent might prefer the straight-up chocolate, but it's an idea!

It will make it easier, but not sooner -- we're not going anywhere till summer of 2010, before I start which school I decide on. No need to move the kids twice, you know?

Hi Amy :-) Just saw your YA deal announcement in Publishers Weekly - congratulations! And since you sold World English rights, there's a good chance that HarperCollins Australia will publish your series, too :-)

Have a lovely day! :-)

Wow! It's so funny to think you read about this in Australia before I was even awake! And thank you! I hope you get to read it there, and if not, let me know and I'll get you a copy!
