Sorry, but I have one more post to make.

I know I said I was done for the day, but I think you'll forgive me:

Folks who have been reading this LiveJournal a while know I like to make self-deprecating posts like this one: The Universe Has Stopped Making Sense in which I announced that I had signed with an agent. It's just my way of having fun and I don't mean anything by it. Sure, "reasons i suck" is one of my most common tags, but I'm not really brimming with self-loathing. Sometimes I wonder if that's the impression I'm giving.

But this has been a good week for me, and I'm not going to do that here.

I've just gotten permission to tell everyone I know (and everyone I don't know) that yesterday, thanks to my agent's hard work, I accepted an offer from Del Rey to publish Harvest of Fire and two sequels.

Holy shit, just typing that gives me tingles.

So.

Yeah.

I've been having a good week.

Congratulations! We're going to share a publisher. Whose your editor at Del Rey?

I keep pinching myself and not waking up. (Or am I only dreaming that I'm pinching myself?)

I KNOW! I used a real glass and everything. No jelly jar!

Salad Eater has a bottle of champagne chilling in the fridge for when I sign the contract in a couple weeks.

It's crazy!

Thanks! I'm sitting here at my desk staring off into space. If I was on the nod, I couldn't have a more vacant expression.

Yay!

I'm glad you didn't cry. If I'm not allowed to poke fun at myself in this thread, then there's no crying either.

Whoo-hoo! You're next!

Hey, I just read "A Treatise on Fewmets" this morning on the bus, as chance would have it.

Great story!

    This reminds me of the time my wife was injured and the insurance guy handling her case did everything possible to deny and stall the payment. We had to put her surgery on a credit card because this…

    Yeah. It's godawful what people will do when they have authority and no fear about using it.
