Woot Woot for LiLa!

My fabulous friends, Lisa and Laura, got their first book deal this week for A Kate Lowry Mystery: THE HAUNTING OF PEMBERLY BROWN.

After a long 5 month submission process.

They have fulfilled one dream in a long line of many. And Im so happy I've have been on this journey with them.

And of course to make it really official - here is the PW announcement. See it is real!

CHILDREN'S: YOUNG ADULT
