If you haven't already heard from Facebook or Twitter (or Publisher's Weekly), Michael Jensen and I have signed with Scholastic! After months of waiting, we finally get to say, "Woven is happening!"
I'll have more in-depth details within the next couple of weeks. Right now I'd like to celebrate this moment and say a special THANK YOU for supporting and believing in us and this book. We can't wait to share this fantastical weaving world that we've woven, with you.
And a special thanks is in order for those who helped make this deal possible: To our incredible agent Meredith Bernstein, who fell in love with our story and auctioned it to Scholastic. To David Levithan and Zack Clark for catching the magic and offering Woven a home. To Natalie Collins who literally stepped in as our "temp agent" and helped us navigate the New York publishing waters. And to the countless authors, friends, and fans who have kept us going!
Now, if it's alright with you, my inner child would like to do something he's wanted to do since he first dreamed of publishing a book ...
Thanks ... It felt good getting that off my chest. I know I keep saying this, but I'll say it again: thank you, everyone! Now for a celebratory cruller and an awkward happy dance. Keep writing, my friends!
I'm David, and this is what's going to be in my head all day ...
