Next, NYT Bestseller List!!

My editor just sent me this, and I nearly died:

STARRED Review, Publisher's Weekly:

"Hallaway's witty, fast-paced series starter cheerfully details the horrors of magical war and high school. Anastasija Ramses Parker is a modern day witch's daughter fond of wearing "black with black and black" but hopelessly unable to perform actual magic. When she flunks her coven's initiation ceremony, she learns her father is a vampire -- and not just any vampire, but a vampire leader, which makes her "some kind of vampire princess"... Ana's narration is pitch-perfect and totally teen: half calculated attitude, half wistful empathy. This all-too-brief tale will have readers hunting down Hallaway's Garnet Lacey series while they wait for Ana's next adventure. (Aug.)"


I guess I get to cross that off my "life list": Get starred review in PW....(faints!)

I was going to post a NASA photo, but I'll wait a day. This should be on top.
