    Oh spegs, CONGRATS!! You've just realized the dream of every aspiring writer out there - to be published. And you did in less than half a month!

    Absolutely-friggin incredible! Brava!

    And did y'all read this - sequels are in the works! I would hug ya if I weren't just a teensy-weensy bit envious, spegs.

    ...we're not worthy, you writing-Goddess.

    Congratulations Spegs. Reading back to the beginning of this thread how you seemed quite shy about the writng thing and look at you now. Way to work hard at realizing your goal of being published. I'm sure your family is so proud of you as they have every right to be.

    My book is going to be published by Little, Brown, which is the YA division of Time Warner. It probably won't come out until spring of 2005, so, not for a while, but that is fine by me because it gives me lots of time to perfect the editing, and work on the sequels. I am a little bit high still today, and none of it has really sunk in, but I'm in the mood to shout my joy from the rooftops.

    So thank you so much to those of you who were so kindly encouraging and helpful with the title mess. FORTies rock.
    I cannot believe my FORTlessness of late caused me to miss this! Whoo hoo Spegalicious!

    <-----------are you doing a lot of this???

    I'm sooo excited for you! Yeee haw! Okay, you were already my role model for writing 5 million pages per day, now you're my role model to be a lot less lazy and kick my writing a$$ in gear!!

    Spegs, thank you for sharing this with us.
