In Which I Meet The Doctor and Travel through Space and Time (i.e. Get a Book Deal)
November 29, 2012
You have no idea how long I've wanted to write this post. (Since I was seven, basically.)
I mean, really, who WOULDN'T be ecstatic about meeting the Doctor and traveling through time and space with him? This is what happened to me. Sort of. Well, not exactly.
But something just as cool happened.
Basically, this was me early last week:
First I couldn't believe what was happening.
Then I realized it wasn't all a dream.
And I was very pleased.
WHAT HAPPENED, YOU ASK?
Extraction is going to be published by St. Martin's Press!!
Here's the official PM announcement:
Here's what it says in case you can't read that:
Nineteen-year-old film student Stephanie Diaz's debut EXTRACTION trilogy, about a girl who wins escape from a life of brutality on her planet's surface only to face the cruel realization that her new life within the core has its own set of horrors, pitched as Divergent meets Ender's Game, to Kathy Huck at St. Martin's, at auction, in a three-book-deal, by Alison Fargis at Stonesong. (world)
Yup. You read that right. A trilogy. And it was pitched as Divergent meets Ender's Game? My life is pretty much complete.
