Congrats to the book deal! Wish I were you!!!

And what a beautiful cover. I'm like swooning from it's beauty right now! I must make it a part of my home library.

Empress Awesome said...

First comment! Yeeesssss!!!

Tamara said...

Congrats, Alyson! The cover is gorgeous! Can't wait for the book!!!! Good news? Well, I got two rejections this week, but I'm turning it into good news by thinking about the other 7 agents currently reviewing my work! That's the good news...hopefully it gets better!!!

Melissa Walker said...

So, so exciting! Earlier release, gorgeous cover! HOORAY!!!

Alyson Noel said...

Thanks so much, eveyone!

And Tamara- don't let the rejections get you down, it's just an unfortunate part of the process and we ALL got them. ALL of us. No exceptions! Fingers crossed for you!

Shelli said...

I gave your blog an award today!

Daisy Whitney said...

Congrats Melissa. I loved LOVESTRUCK SUMMER and now I must read your Violet series especially because my perfect dog is named Violet and I love the name! And I adore the cover of SHADOWLAND and am thrilled it'll be available so soon. My good news is my debut YA sold! Little Brown bought my novel THE MOCKINGBIRDS about an underground, vigilante group of boarding students committed to righting the wrongs of their peers. And I get to write its sequel too!

Hardcover??? {{{{{ALYSON!!!}}}}}

Empress Awesome said...

Oh sorry, I forgot to share my good news-- I haven't gotten any rejections yet! That means they're still thinking about it, which is alright with me.

Alyson Noel said...

Shelli- Thanks so much for the shout out on your blog--much appreciated!

Daisy- I think I'll have a little champagne tonight on your behalf--I'm just so dang happy for you!

Lauren- Thanks for being such a sweety!

Empress Awesome-- My fingers are tightly crossed for you!!

Alyson, your new cover is gorgeous and I love that it's coming out earlier than previously scheduled and that it'll be hardcover. And all the great news with Daisy (squee!) and Empress Awesome and Tamara (Alyson's right; EVERYone gets rejections so I'm proud of you for keeping it positive)and Melissa ... whoa. And thanks Shelli, for the shout-out.
