What's up, Doc?

Some news.

First, the release date for Novel the First is set for Fall 2010. Because the Imprint is part of a larger company--a company that is in fact a school and library publisher--we're looking at a two season, even two-release-date, schedule: January or July. So Fall 2010 essentially means finished books next July. (Release, btw, does not mean in stores; it means at the warehouse and available. Or it did at S&S, anyway. I can only assume.)

I learned this last night, over my first-ever editor lunch, albeit a dinner. It was at Ngon, which I am still not confident trying to say out loud. But the food was fantastic. I had two appetizers, including the tofu lettuce wraps, and one other that I won't mention because I think some people who read this might faint or never speak to me again if they find out I ate rabbit. Oops.

But I'll definitely eat at Ngon again, and they're even baby friendly. There were like three babies there last night, actually, and Editor mentioned he and his wife brought their own baby there too. He liked the pho. (Baby did, I mean. Though I'm sure Editor did too.)

In related news, I have become a Tenner. This thrills me more than you can imagine. If you want to get an idea of how awesome they are, look at all the comments in my first entry. They are a supportive and welcoming crew!

Some links this morning:

Head over to Carrie Jones's blog, because she waxes poetic about my new agent and her deep affection for him!

Jay Asher, rags-to-riches author of 13 Reasons Why, has a great little post today in answer to the question "What is wrong with these kids today?!"

Finally, someone up and bought kidlit.com! I suspect it's going to be big, what with the excellent URL. I recommend subscribing to the feed now to stay ahead of the mob.

I just read your book blurb over on the Tenner's website, sounds awesome! Also, Kidlit looks it's shaping up into something great!

I hope you enjoyed it. It will be your last. If I end up in MN, you can bet I am going to be organizing an army of lapins. When the animal revolution comes, you will be toast. Yours will be a slow death, a death by 10,000 bunny bites.

Roo, I'm giggling just thinking about having 10,000 bunnies nibbling on my person.

Apparently you can get Guinea Pig at Chino Latino... so glad my friend didn't get that. I wouldn't have been able to eat a thing!

For a guinea pig, I feel like being eating is probably one of the more humane possibilities of things it might be fated to. It's either that or chemical testing at a mascara company, right?

I guess the only reason she didn't get it was because her husband said she would be the only one eating it! I guess she's had it before! That would just gross me out beyond belief though!
