The ANTS Blog Tour Begins. (Happy Birthday Lucky Linderman!)
A huge happy birthday to Lucky Linderman and EVERYBODY SEES THE ANTS! (Keep reading to win a FREE COPY!)
You have no idea how hard this book fought to get into your hands. It started as a seed in July 2008 with a file called The Pool Book. Thinking back, this would have been during the second draft of PLEASE IGNORE VERA DIETZ. Then, I spent all of 2008 writing VERA DIETZ and after I sold her early in 2009, I started on ANTS. Like VERA, I wrote most of the first draft in one insane month. Then I spent the rest of 2009 revising both ANTS and VERA for two different purposes. VERA to get to publication, ANTS to find an agent.
ANTS did its job and found me an agent by October, 2009, but then it turned out it had to find us a new publishing house, too. Which turned out really well, I think. The people at Little, Brown are completely fantastic and have loved the book from the very beginning. Now, three and a quarter years since the book sprouted, we are looking at a really awesome tree.
All of you who helped this happen (and there are so many) thank you very much.
Y.A. Love. You can also enter to WIN a free copy, so get thee to her blog and enter!
