Last night I posted a cryptic congratulatory note about an unnamed writer friend; turns out that if only I'd waited a little longer, I could have skipped the crypticness. I already posted a link in comments on that entry, but for the benefit of those of you who read this journal via LJ etc:
Huge congratulations to Sarah P for selling her YA fantasy trilogy to HarperCollins!
Sadly, the first book (Magic Thief) won't be on bookstore shelves until early 2009, to avoid getting lost in a deluge of other YA fantasy books in 2008. But still: so cool! Yay, Sarah!
