Update on the ohmygoshohmygoshohmygosh post!

Last we left our heroine, she was weeping with excitement, jumping up and down around her bedroom "office" when she learned that the Demi-God Author of Children's Literature had asked her gorgeous editor to read her novel for potential endorsement . . . and editor immediately had said novel printed, bound and messengered to the DGA of Children's Lit.

Last week Gorgeous Editor gets a letter from Demi-God Author. He read the book! He loves the book! He's blurbing the book!!! It's true, it's REAL!!!!

Gorgeous Editor starts jumping up and down, calls heroine/writer at dinnertime who thinks it's an anonymous salesperson calling for $ or a survey and ignores the phone and continues stirring her spaghetti sauce and setting the table. Two hours later heroine listens to voice mail . . . and starts crying again. And bouncing off walls.

Gorgeous Editor says that she's been running around showing off the beautiful blurb to all her fellow editors who begin jumping up and down.

She shows it to the publicity dept who begins jumping up and down.

The blurb comes *in the nick of time* to be lovingly placed on the cover on its way out the door to becoming an ARC!!!!

Heroine's novel THE HEALING SPELL is blessed by the Demi-God and Demi-Goddess of Literature.

Heroine is off to make an offering of chocolate to the Gods . . .
