The Luck of the Irish (seriously!)

I think the luck of the Irish has been spreading around the blogosphere. So many people have been sharing their good news. In case you haven’t heard, here’s what’s happening for just a few of my blogging buddies:

Everybody’s favorite Story Queen, Shelley Moore Thomas, signed with the fabulous Joanna Stampfel-Volpe. Woo-hoo! Shelley’s celebrating by sharing the love so visit her blog to enter for your own basket of luck.

High school teacher and blogger extraordinaire Beth Revis, sold her novel in a pre-empt to Razorbill as part of a three-book deal. Yay! She’s also hosting a contest to celebrate so check out her blog as well.

Myra McEntire is dreaming about Brazil since she just sold rights there to her debut novel, Hourglass, coming from Egmont in 2011. Sweet!

Congrats to all of you fabulous bloggers and writers!

Now there’s one more lucky person to add to the list because the winner of the autographed copy of Ballad by Maggie Stiefvater is:

I actually randomly selected Tricia O’Brien first (those lucky Irish lasses!), but then I realized she already had the book and wanted someone else to win. So Stina, you are the lucky recipient! Email me with your snail mail address at solvangsherrie at gmail dot com and I will get the book to you straight away! Enjoy!

And if any of you have some good news to share, tell me in the comments. I love hearing about the wonderful things happening to my favorite bloggers!

    My lucky thing was I got a referral to an agent, who is #1 on my list but only takes submissions based on referrals and she requsted the ms. I'm still giddy.
