I know this is not technically a day to post stories, but I need to announce this. The last of the three Merry Sister of Fate has a book deal that went official today!!

From Publisher’s Marketplace:

Tessa Gratton’s debut BLOOD MAGIC, about two teens who meet in a cemetery and plunge into a dangerous world of dark magic, first love, and the deadly secrets that hide in blood, to Suzy Capozzi at Random House Children’s, at auction, in a very good deal, in a two-book deal, for publication in summer 2011, by Laura Rennert at Andrea Brown Literary Agency (world).

I’ve read it, critiqued it, it’s awesome, tight, bloody, eerie, and sexy. I’m so excited for her. Now all three of us Sisters are published and all is right with the world.

I remember when we first met and the project she was working on then. Started in a motel room with a spray of arterial blood . . . aww, makes me nostalgic.

GIANT CONGRATS TO TESSA!!!! I’m so proud to know her!

    Very much looking forward to reading it in 2011 . . . sounds exciting in a dark, creepy sort of way . . . and I’m all about the dark and creepy.
