I don't post on here very often because, well, I don't post very often anywhere. But I have to post this:

I got an email from an editor at Scholastic who congratulated me on being runner-up in the SCBWI work-in-progress grant. I was shocked! Then, he went on to say he liked my manuscript and would I please consider letting him see the rest! He said my story would probably be a good fit in his imprint.

Now, I have to hurry up and finish my book so I can send it to him! (Ah, the pressure... I love it!)

Wow! Arthur Levine (I went to your blog)!!! He is US editor for Harry Potter and the original US editor of THE GOLDEN COMPASS/Philip Pullman. You're in great company.
