Another stream of exciting news

Current Theme Song (aka what's playing on my ipod right now): Hearbeats by José González.

It was unveiled yesterday that the amazingly cute/sweet/bashful/[insert your own adorable adjective here] Shannon Messenger now has an agent! And not just any agent, but the amazing Laura Rennert who has headed such small projects as Jay Asher's 13 Reasons Why, Ellen Hopkins Tricks, Maggie Stiefvater's Shiver (and upcoming Linger), and Kimberly Derting's The Body Finder. You know, those small books. So go over and congratulate her on this huge accomplishment! She really is about the sweetest thing you'll ever meet. (And you may want to become a follower while you're over there. She's got a rocking contest going on just this morning, with signed copies of all those aforementioned books in the running. Yeah, she's that cool. Click here to go straight to the contest).

Also in other small news, Stephenie Meyer is releasing a novella on June 5th, 2010 (in bookstores for $13.99 hardcover), set in the world of Eclipse about one of the newborn vampires, Bree Tanner, who was first introduced in that book. But even better, from June 7th-July 5th you will be able to read the full thing online, for free at Click here on Stephenie's Meyer's official site for more details. (How do you like that, Shannon? You're paired with Stephenie Meyer!) :)
