Happy Dancing

I love to see friends do well and it seems that a lot of them have been celebrating this week. Here’s some good news I’d like to highlight this week:

If you haven’t been following Susan Quinn’s amazing story this week of how she got her publishing deal, then you need to head over there. The publisher approached her and asked her to submit! Yes! I knew you’d want to read all about this!

I was also happy to discover a wonderful article about author Greg Trine. I’ve interviewed him here on the blog, but this article in the Ventura County Star is simply awesome.

Last summer I got to meet the Southern belles from Plot This. Katie and SF are two of the nicest people you’ll ever come across and if you check out this vlog, you’ll understand why you’ve been hearing happy sounds echoing throughout the country from Mississippi.

Now I don’t know Kiera Cass personally. In fact, I just heard about her last week on Adventures in Children’s Publishing. But her story is amazing. From self-published author to being repped by Caren Johnson Literary to even bigger news this week. I love this vlog from Kiera. Warning: You’ll want to dance!

So tell me: what’s your good news this week?
