Here are the authors' own words, used with their permission:
I'm not sure if you remember us or not, but we participated in one of your Secret Agent contests back in February 2009. We didn't win, but we did get a ton of amazing feedback from Kristin Nelson and your fantastic readers. We used all of that great feedback to revise our manuscript and ended up scoring an amazing agent in March 2009. And now we've hit another huge milestone. Our debut novel, A Kate Lowry Mystery: The Haunting of Pemberly Brown, will be published by Sourcebooks in Spring 2011. We are beyond excited and we can't help but think that we have you and the community of writers at your blog to thank.
Thank you so much for all of your hard work! We can't imagine all the time and effort that goes into maintaining your blog, but we sure do appreciate it.
Sincerely,Lisa and Laura
Woot woot and triple woot! It's a measureless honor to have been part of this book's exciting journey.
Read their blog post announcing the deal.
They're even giving away a Kindle to celebrate!
Throw confetti along with me. When two of our "own" make it, we're all part of the happy that happens. You could be next!
