You guys!!! I woke up this morning to a very special treat. My book deal was announced in Publisher’s Marketplace! Woot-woot! If you’re unfamiliar with Publisher’s Marketplace, it’s the place where all the bigwig pub professionals go to get their industry information (things like job openings, reviews, new book deals, etc.). And for a writer, the sensation of seeing your deal posted here is trumped only by finally spotting your baby sitting on the bookshelf. Without further ado, here it is:

Children’s: Young Adult Victoria Scott’s THE COLLECTOR, in which a bad boy teen soul collector needs a girl’s soul, but she’s making him forget his mission and endangering his heart instead; big boss Satan is not going to be happy, to Liz Pelletier at Entangled, in a nice deal, for publication in 2013, by Laurie McLean at Larsen/Pomada Literary Agents (World).

Yeah, you know what I mean.
