I'm kind of belated with this, but wanted to congratulate some fellow writerly types on recent successes:

--Courtney Allison Moulton snagged a 3-book deal with Katherine Tegen / HarperCollins.

--Debra Schubert signed with Bernadette Baker-Baughman of Baker's Mark Literary Agency. You can read all about her journey here.

--Jill Myles has not one, but TWO books coming out in the upcoming weeks! She'll be making an appearance here on the blog soon talking about...what else? sex.

I'm sure I'm missing a few. Please comment if you know of anyone else!

Now I'm off to do some Christmas shopping. What mother of two girls would miss out on picking up one of babies to teach important life skills?:

Awww, isn't she adorable? But I have to say, she won't earn many tips with THAT outfit. Take it off! Woo!

Oh dear. I hope this is a hoax.

OMG - please tell me the pole-dancing doll is a joke. If not, before long they'll be showing up in Victoria's Secret next to the thong undies for 10-year olds. What responsible mom wouldn't buy them for stocking stuffers?

Oh, and thanks for the lovely mention of my agent-snag. I'm still floating on Cloud 9. Okay, that's a bit of an exaggeration. I've finally set my feet on more solid ground. I'm down to Cloud 8. ;-)

And did you see the doll you breastfeed? No, thank you.

Congrats to those you've mentioned! Best to all.

Melanie Hooyenga said...

Congratulations ladies!!

Oh my... I really hope that toy isn't real. What kills me even more is that there are people who will buy that for their children.

Those dolls are very very frightening!! Well done to those folks you mentioned... wonderful.x

Debra--I'm expecting great things for you, missy!

Janna--Yeah, a Breastfeeding Betsy doesn't appeal to me very much.

Mel--How about the stripper-pole-in-living-room trend? I was thinking of having one installed.

L W M--Indeed!

Allie said...

Stripper pole in the living room? I mean, really the kitchen makes much more sense!

Nice to see happy publishing news!

A kitchen stripper pole would be a great idea. That way, I can stir dinner as I swing upside down. Saves time!
