Congratulations Debbie Ohi!!!!

If you all haven't heard yet, my crit partner Debbie Ridpath Ohi from our MiG's group has announced her picture book deal. She will be illustrating I'M BORED by Michael Ian Black - Simon & Schuster 2012.

VERY exciting.

Yeah, as you can see all my crit buddies are getting fantastic book deals. I'm hoping their good luck will rub off on me! LOL.

Regardless, I'm so, so excited. She's got a great story to tell. Check it out here.

This girl with the red dress is my favorite illustration of Debbie's. Isn't Debbie talented? Just wait until a publisher grabs up her middle grade book!

AND we're having a PARTY to celebrate her book deal over at the MiG Writer's Blog. Check it out! Cool prizes and a video congrats too.

Come party with us!

Congrats to Debbie. I know that she is a whiz at illustrating. *turns green* And Christina, your time will come. My crit partner's book debuted at #7 so I try to rub her as much as possible. I think I wore a sore place on her arm. ;)

That is Awesome! Grats.

I woke up Sunday a.m. to find my blog, my 500 plus followers, my 100plus author interviews, and my 200 plus reviews gone. Blogger gave no explanation, but I think the account was hacked. Change your password often!

I have reloaded the interviews and reviews, plus redesigned the blog. But if you could, please hit the "follow" button so I can reclaim the fellow bloggers I miss. I'm still following you, as my account remained--thank goodness!

Thank you!

I know Debbie from the SCBWI LA conferences. You are so lucky to have her as a CP. She has so much energy and is super sweet.

Congrats, Debbie. I'm super excited for you.

And Christina, my fingers are crossed that your crit buddies luck will rub off on you too. :D
