WRITERS: FOLLOW JEN K BLOM & HER POSSUMS!
(Someone needs to update their picture, e'hem!)
For months now there has been a RAT VS. POSSUMS throw down brewing between me and writer, Jen K Blom! And now that my good buddy has announced the sale of her debut, the throw down can officially begin!
Have you ever met one of those glittery people you just immediately take a shine to (despite their possum obsession)? Well, my good friend and fellow writer, Jen K Blom, is one of those special people!
As luck would have it, my buddy Jen's debut middle grade novel, Possum Summer, has been sold to Holiday House Books, coming out fall of 2011, right along with Nightshade City's sequel, Billycan! Now you all know how I rave about Holiday House, so it was crazy to me when my very best German bound bud, received an offer from them to buy her debut just last week! Even more providential, her shiny, new editor turns out to be my amazing editor, Julie Amper! What are the odds? Jen loves her agent, Marlene Stringer, as much as I love Marietta, so we have to plug her too!
So, long story short, follow this girls blog if you don't already! Jen is not only an amazing author, but hysterical and insightful! She has a cool husband named Soren and a there is an 80% chance her cat is plotting to kill her (jealous of possums perhaps?)! Jen not only just got her first book deal, but she has a baby coming any day now! So please shoot over to her blog with some warm congrats to her and the possums and little Izzy who is about to make her debut soon and follow, follow, follow her blog (mine too)! :)
The moral of this story: Rats rule, possums drool!
