Let's pounce on P

The word for today is P. P for persistence, P for perfection, P for pleasure. And it is my Pleasure to announce that my YA Paranormal will be Published by WiDo Publishing sometime in 2012. I'm so exited and happy! Very, very happy! I received encouraging words last night from the wonderful Allie at WiDo and should expect to see a contract today or sometime this week I imagine.

I know this isn't an awards show or anything, but I'd like to thank all my friends here for sticking with me and giving such wonderful words to help me along. Molly, thank you for reading the early manuscript and giving your thoughts and love. Karen, thank you for reading the manuscript, for putting in a good word for me, and for helping me through this whole process. Cro, thank you for being so positive and for giving such calm wisdom to keep me from freaking out every two days. Tom- thank you for those early compliments and for being so hard on me at times- to make me work hard- I really appreciate that! Talli, Jenn, Tess, MC Howe thank you for the love and smiles. Thank you to all my newer blogger friends as well! Mom, thank you for all the advice and patience. Marshall, thank you for being such a dear friend. Everyone at AW thank you.

Okay so here is a short pitch for the book:

Seventeen-year-old Emma Shay is dying to get out of small town Springvail, but after falling in love with a young man no one else can see, decides to stay and fight to get his soul back from a cult called the Soul Seekers.

Happy Tuesday to all!

WiDo has been looking for a YA paranormal romance for-- ev--er. Most of them are too copy cat, or need way too much editing to take on. I am soooo thrilled that yours was THE ONE to catch Allie's eye!!!!

  13. Congrats, Amy. Your novel sounds interesting. Soul Seekers -- sounds demented and evil.

    Best of luck on your writing career.
