My new toothbrush! And– book deal
Three MAJOR things happened to me this week.
1) I finished classes and am getting out of grad school!
2) I won a bingo game after a presentation on oral hygiene, and got a free toothbrush!
I know, it’s madness, isn’t it? I can’t believe such a lovely toothbrush is mine, and it’s free, for that matter. I keep staring and staring at it, expecting it to disappear, but no, it’s still there! Sitting innocuously on my sink, like a toothbrush that isn’t free, like just a toothbrush I bought at a store, and yet I didn’t. Buy it, I mean. I got it from winning bingo, as I said before.
God, life is a crazy, amazing place sometimes. I’m almost scared to brush my teeth with it. I’m afraid of ruining its toothbrush-y perfection. I suppose I’ll try tonight… If I dare.
3) Oh, yeah, and I’m getting published.
From PublishersMarketplace: “S.J. Kincaid’s INSIGNIA, in which a teenage video gamer becomes a government weapon in a futuristic world at war, to Molly O’Neill at Katherine Tegen Books, in in pre-empt, in a significant deal, in a three-book deal, by David Dunton at Harvey Klinger.”
It’s my seventh manuscript. First six went nowhere, and to be honest, I was starting to wonder if seven unpublished manuscripts meant I was crossing that fragile little line between persistence and outright delusion.
But, well, yeah. Heh.
I’ll post again soon about trying my new toothbrush!
