YAY RACHEL! (Aka, An Ode To Best Friends)

I'm so happy to announce that my good friend Rachel Searles has signed with Joanna Volpe of New Leaf Literary! YAY!

"Today is a good day!"

You may remember that I interviewed Rachel a few months ago. We met about two years ago, and started critiquing each other's books - and they were a mess.

"Don't mind us, we're just revising."

But as we both revised and critiqued and got better as writers (slowly) we also became close friends.

"We gotta stick together to get through this!"

Soon we were talking every day, yelling at each other to finish revising, and consoling the other person when they got a rejection.

"How's it going?" "Don't even ask!"

Now I honestly don't know how I would make it through my day without Rachel keeping me sane!

"Did you see that post?" "I know, right?"

I'm so happy she stuck with this book, and didn't give up even when the universe seemed to be conspiring against her. Her book is so much fun and features one of my favorite characters ever, so hopefully one day you'll all get to read it too!

"Time to go party!"

Now head over to Rachel's blog and congratulate her!
