Well I've been sitting on some news for a little while now, waiting for the go-ahead to tell, and now the secret is out, so I'm telling!
I SOLD MY BOOK!!
The deal info from Publishers Marketplace is as follows:
Alyssa Goodnight's AUSTEN IN AUSTIN, in which a Jane Austen addict gets thrown from her obsessively rigid life plan when an enchanted journal inhabited by an interfering fairy godmother (who just happens to be the spirit of her beloved Jane Austen) enters her life, to Megan Records at Kensington, in a two-book deal, by Rebecca Strauss at McIntosh & Otis.
I'm so excited!! This book has been so long in the writing--and so long in the editing--that I'm thrilled that it has finally found a home!
And now I'm on to Book 2 of the 'two-book deal,' trying to get a ahead, as it's expected in a year, and my track record runs about four. Yikes! I'll reallly need to buckle down. But I'm excited!!!!
