Double SQUEEEEEEEEE!

Getting your first contract is a big deal!

So, I was ecstatic for my friend "F" when she contacted me last Friday to say she had sold a picture book!

I jumped and screamed and did all those cliche things that one does when feeling super excited. I composed congratulatory posts in my head and planned surprise celebratory gifts.

But then F contacted me again on Tuesday.

Are you sitting down for this?

She sold ANOTHER picture book!!!

TWO sales in one week.

Is that INSANE????????????

I can't reveal names, titles, or houses yet, but she got two deals in four days!

Holy cow.

I am speechless.

She is a Sudipta in the making.

Wow! Congratulations to "F"! (I can't wait to find out who it is.)

A couple questions that will not reveal her identity:
Is she agented?
And if not, did she make the sales through slush? Conferences?

Inquiring minds want to know!
