Major Prize, Major Prize...and its not Frah-Jih-Lay

I won a major prize. Well, its major to me anyway. I visit Cynthia Leitich Smith's blog, Cynsations and I entered one of her ARC giveaways...and I WON!

It is The Devouring: Sorry Night by Simon Holt. It is a YA fantasy book and I can't wait to bring it in for my students and tell them the whole story. Me, reading Cynthia's blog, sending her my entry email and then winning...see, reading can get you places, right?

On a side note, my journey towards securing my dream agent crawled a few centimeters forward last night. I received an email saying that she is waiting on an interim report on my book...whatever that is, and, she would be getting in touch with me soon. She promised.

Breathe in.

Breathe out.

Breathe in.

Breathe out.

News is news, even if it only moves my journey forward one centimeter at a time...
