‘A Very Special Announcement’

All my life, I've had three ambitions.

Of course, one of them was to invent and popularise a game called paintbucket. Think about it - Paintball is a cruel, sadistic game which involves shooting balls of paint at helpless innocents, but paintbucket? A field full of people laughing and splashing each other with little buckets of paint until both people and field are multi-coloured? You know it would be awesome.

The second ambition was - No, you guys. I can't even joke. Because the truth is I've only ever really wanted one thing in my life, and now I have it.

This is an excerpt from a magazine called Publisher's Weekly.

Sarah Rees Brennan's debut urban fantasy trilogy (young adult), starting with THE DEMON'S LEXICON, about two brothers hunted throughout England by a powerful magician's circle after their mother steals a charm and when the eldest is marked by a demon, the younger uses swords and dark arts in an effort to save him but unwittingly uncovers the darkest of secrets, sold to Karen Wojtyla at Margaret K. McElderry Books, by Kristin Nelson at Nelson Literary Agency

I am so happy. I am laughing and crying and firmly convinced that it's a dream. I will tell you guys more later, but for now... Who's for champagne? Or paintbucket?
