Because writing is hard.
HUZZZZZZZAAAAAHHHH!!!!Congratulations!!! Emily FTW! OTHER TRIUMPHANT CAPITALS AND ABBREVIATIONS!!Seriously, much deserved and anticipated! I can't wait to read it and to design alternate book covers for it.
Ha! Thanks Matt! I can't wait to see these covers! I'll set my Expectation Phaser on high.
Freehand Books is SUCH a cool publishing house! Also seriously smart, as evidenced by signing a contract with you. Really happy to hear your news. I can't think of anyone who deserves this more than you.
Thanks Alana! You've been my cheerleader all along so I know you'll buy at least 17 copies. Right? Riiiiiiight????
Congratulations Emily!!! I can't think of anyone more talented, hard working and deserved. I can't wait to see your book in print! I'll be the first in line to have an autograph on the back of my tablet :)
Aww... thanks. I'll do you one better, though: I'll sign the FRONT!
YEAHHH!! So, so very happy about this FABFABFAB news!
Thanks RL! The universe is weird, huh? One step backwards sometimes leads to one step forward. :)
The universe is so weird and smart!
OMG just like us!!
So excited for you. I can't wait to buy copies for everyone I know (except Chris b/c he's against art in all its forms [though he's very happy for you, of course!])
That's okay because I'm against semiconductors in all their forms. (Semiconductors are really lazy orchestra conductors, right?)
Ha! Yes - either that or they're those a-hole train dudes who only bother to call half the stops.
