Boy, I missed alot of good news! Super congrats to everyone! Pretty good stuff! :)

Claudie - that's pretty wonderful. There is nothing more energizing than to validation - when you feel like someone 'gets' you and thinks you're on the right path! Very cool. :)

Thanks Mira! And you're right, energizing is the right word. ^^ I haven't felt this motivated to go back to my main WIP since the beginning of the semester. And it'S not just thinking I'm on the right path. It's wanting to prove I can do even better, too. :D

Not a writing SQUEE, but in my grown up job I organized a friendly competition at the hospital I work at for the annual food drive for our city's Food Bank. Because of the flooding in the Midwest this summer, our food bank is completely empty. Our competition and food drive was a HUGE success! My team won, though it was a close close close race, and I was interviewed about coming up with the competition. Granted, the picture they took of my team was kind of a terrible picture (my eyes are closed. Naturally.) but the interview was lovely!

So there's my squee good news for the week :-)
May the word counts be ever in your favor. http://www.sommerleigh.com
Be nice, or I get out the Tesla cannon.

Sommer, congratulations!! That's impressive! And how fun to be interviewed.

Also, shining at work is a very wonderful thing - very validating and fulfilling, and it doesn't hurt to have your boss look at you with approval. :D

Squee! My second work just went online and available for purchase. Unlike my other recent release, the dreadnought fantasy novel, Crystal Shade, this one is just a tiny frigate, a little noir short, part of my new short story series. But regardless from it's size, I'm proud for this one as well.

Yesterday I signed with Pippa Masson at Curtis Brown Australia. :D I can't even find words for the way I feel now - and finding the right words is now my official job!

Finally received the cover art for my novella coming out in January from Carina Press. The design literally stunned me...or maybe it was the visual representation of all the work I'd done going from idea to publication. :)

I told myself I was going to keep my squeeing to a minimum and only to a couple of people in private, but I just had the most excellent surprise when someone told me to check the rankings for my pen name's ebooks. On a distribution site that shall remain nameless, my pen name has 6 of the top 100 spots for the subgenre...including #1. BOOM, baby.

Squee!!! My beauty, Crystal Shade got it's very first review from a dear Australian reader at Smashwords;
http://www.smashwords.com/books/view/104029

Stars: * * * * * (Out of 5)
To begin, this is not your everyday Fantasy novel. It's an interesting story about a little girl who dies and becomes an Angel. Without giving too much away, the first half of the book focuses on her training. There are lots of descriptive pages and the story is very in-depth and involved. The second half is about..... Well you'll just have to read it and find out. For a first novel from this Author, I'll have to say it's very well written. It's intriguing and thought provoking. It is not a book you can just quickly skim through and read in one night, you have to absorb the words and create the fantasy in your mind. I would call this a supernatural fantasy. It is very different. I'll be waiting for volume 2 to see how it plays out. Also if anyone's interested go to the Crystal Shade Angeni website and check out the artwork for this novel, the Author is also an artist and he has outdone himself. The artwork is absolutely breathtaking, some of the most beautiful art I've ever seen. Well done Mr. Szabo.
