Had enough of the Anticipation theme?  Me, too. No condiments this time, just real news.

This has been in the works for a week, and I’ve been about to pop the whole time. Monday, my wonderful agent sold SOUL TACO ENCHILADA to Virginia Duncan at Greenwillow/HarperCollins, as part of a two-book deal.  Publication is set for Winter ’09, with ARCs available sooner.

To say that I’m delighted is like saying that cheesecake is, oh, pretty good.

The deal will be announced in PW and PMP later. This is all new to me, so I’m taking advice on how to handle this whole “I’m a soon-to-be published YA author” thing.
