Tuesday Newsday: early signs that November will rock.

Last night, I was all mopey and tired and hating work, so I logged on for a blogger high (um, I mean pick-me-up. like coffee. totally legal.). And what did I find? Only the best news I've heard so far for November:

The lovely sister-sister writing team of Lisa and Laura Roecker (a.k.a. "LiLa") is going to be published!! Can I get a woot woot?

*The crowd says, "Woot Woot!"

Here's their Publisher's Marketplace blurb (which I totally stole from their blog; don't tell): From Publisher's Marketplace: Lisa Roecker and Laura Roecker's A Kate Lowry Mystery: THE HAUNTING OF PEMBERLY BROWN, a quick-witted mystery starring a private-school sleuth with attitude and pearls, who receives an email from her dead best friend, to Daniel Ehrenhaft at Sourcebooks, for publication in Spring 2011, by Catherine Drayton at Inkwell Management (NA).

Congrats, girls! Try to remember the little people. Or, at least don't have us arrested for stalking if we show up in your backyard in Team LiLa t-shirts, bearing Twizzlers and "Vote 4 LiLa" bumper stickers. (Um, I mean at your front door. With like, a card or something. Whoa. Creepy moment there.)





Lisa and Laura said...

Thank you so much Jess!!! We are so excited! And for the record, we're totally ok with stalkers...er...friends showing up unannounced as long as they come bearing Twizzlers.

Li-La, Li-La.

I'm chanting in a sports enthusiast kind of tone.. in case you couldn't tell.

Such exciting news! I had a big stupid grin on my face for them all day and started most sentences with, "You know MY friends? The sister writers, LiLa? Well, they got a book deal!"

Champagne on me, ladies!

Katie said...

Woo hoo! Jess, you are your self-proclamed stalkerness makes me giggle :-)

Our new goal: to all be Eleveners!!!!
