Another yahoo moment!

I’ve talked before about yahoo moments and how few and far between they can be.
Qwikpick has given me some — good reviews and fun school appearances. (But also a lot of heartbreak.)
And Llama with a Hat gave me a big one when I found it was actually going to happen AFTER I had given up on it.
But the Civil War Extravaganza hasn’t really had a yahoo moment. It’s been – what – four years of labor, lots of ups and downs and occasional really good news for me and my co-author. But there’s never really been a single moment for celebration.
But today… YAHOO!
Our new editor through us some tough challenges and today we heard that she dug our revisions! The book is SO much better now and our enthusiasm has been growing.
And then the editor drops the bombshell. She’s got an illustrator in mind and –YAHOO! — the person in question ROCKS THE MIC! If this works out this particular illustrator should tear the roof off with this cover! I cannot wait to see what it’s going to look like, but I think the word KUNG-FU may apply!
Coming to a store near you in 2009!

  1. YAHOO! YAHOO! YAHOO! I cannot wait until you can reveal all…

  2. Congratulations! This post has the soundtrack of the Proclaimers’ “I’m on My Way,” I think.

  3. Thanks everybody! I can’t wait to reveal stuff and hate keeping secrets. But I don’t want to drive my editors or agent crazy. Or jinx anything either!

    And word up on the Proclaimers!

  4. EXCELLENT! Way to go!
