Big Announcement!

Sooooooo… I have some news.

I have AWESOME news.

I have the VERY BEST NEWS IN THE WORLD!!!!!!!!!

I am giddy with delight to announce (and I cannot believe I’m saying this and it’s true and this is really happening) that Orbit has acquired my fantasy novel, THE TETHERED MAGE, for publication in Fall 2017!

NO SERIOUSLY THIS IS A REAL THING THAT IS HAPPENING! HOLY CRAP!!!!!!!!

(I am being totally professional about this, as you can see.)

And you know what else? You know what? IT’S GOING TO BE A TRILOGY! So I really hope you like my book, because there’s going to be THREE OF IT! WHEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!

LOOK! Here’s proof I’m not dreaming:

You guys, I can’t even tell you how happy I am. This has been my dream since I was literally five years old. And Orbit is an amazing publisher, and my editor (Lindsey Hall) is amazing, and my agent (the incredible Naomi Davis) is a goddess.

I am so far over the moon I can’t even SEE the moon from here. I’m past the Oort cloud in deep space. It’s crazy. I probably need some oxygen and I might die. OF JOY.

YAAAAYYYYYY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
