We interrupt this Wineapalooza trip to bring you some very exciting (well, to me anyway) news...news that is far more relevant to this blog. News that I've been bubbling over with excitement about for some time now but have had to (very, very impatiently) wait to mention. News that had been a long time in the works and....oh the heck with it:
THE DOG LIVED (AND SO WILL I) memoir will be published in October, 2012 by Sourcebooks!!!
You careful readers will remember that I signed on with the Sarah Jane Freymann Literary Agency last November. And Sarah Jane has been ever so patiently working with me to perfect the proposal and several sample chapters. She then diligently set about selling it to a publisher and I am ever so pleased that we have found the perfect home for The Dog Lived (and So will I) memoir (and so far, that's still the title of the book too!) with Shana Drehs at Sourcebooks. I've still got work to do, but I'm super, super excited. October 2012 sounds like a long way off, but there's much to be done to launch a book and now it even seems a little overwhelming, but all so very exciting. I sold my memoir! Somebody wants to publish my book! And Shana, who will be my editor, is a dog lover too so that works out very well.
Seamus has already started making his demands for additional steak, chicken, and also toast. We know who the book's real star is.
(I expect I'll have much more to say about this, assuming I have time to blog...what with all the memoir writing I have to do!! But for now...I just wanted to share the news.)
