A Day Late and a Dollar Short

(curse you, small town internet problems!)

Anyway, I still wanted to send a HUGE shout out to my friend Kiersten. She just signed a THREE BOOK DEAL WITH HARPER TEEN!!!


Let me tell you guys, I’ve read this book and it’s brilliant. I am not surprised in the slightest that it got snapped up by editors. In fact, I think those were my very words when I emailed Kiersten my crit. “SNAPPED UP.”

Kierst, we MoMo’s have been through a lot of ups and downs together and I am totally thrilled to be able to celebrate this triumph with you.

    Thank you thank you thank you!!!

    And who was the genius that said, “Hrm, these chapters could probably be combined?”

    Oh yeah. YOU.

    You’re right! Okay, I want you to dedicate the book to me then. 😉

    Seriously though, I can take no credit. You’re the one who came up with the brilliant concept and wrote the book brilliantly.

    I’ve missed you! Stinking internet issues. Hope you’re doing well and stuff:)

    Also, another SQUEE for Kiersten.

    Yay, Kiersten! I think this is so awesome, and I’m jealous that Ren and Natalie have already read your awesome work! Guess I’ll get to read it soon, relatively speaking!

    I’ve missed you, too, Ren. Come back come back!
