That is ruddy marvellous - well done!

I've just had my first short story accepted - head-hunted, really - for publication by an almost-real publisher in San Francisco (I'm in London) so I have the tiniest inkling of how you feel right now.

But only the tiniest.

Congratulations, Billy! I can't wait to read it.

Ann Wesley Hardin

Billy, Billy, BILLY!! What WONDERFUL news! I'm leaping out of my chair for you! There's nothing quite like that first sale, is there, for a novel, that is. Something that's purely YOUR creation. No one else could've done it.

Fantastic! I'll be first in line at B&N and then Fandango. Hey, can we all get tickets to the big premier, just for knowin' you back then? Huh? Can we?

~Ann, going to bed tonight knowing a bell has rung in the wonderful world of fiction.

Maggie Burns

Congratulations!!! That's such fantastic news! CELEBRATE! I think we'll all celebrate on your behalf!

kristen

Wahoo! Excellent, excellent news. What a great year-end gift.

christina

Well, I'm not surprised at all! I'm so glad they didn't make you wait through the holidays. Now the question is: who is designing the book cover?

Barbara

Bravo, bravo, bravo. Love every single minute of this success.

Abby

And in the spirit of Chanukah, let me ephatically add....

MAZEL TOV!!!!

So happy for you, Billy -- really, congrats....we're all out here whooping and hollering along with you and eagerly awaiting standing in line for "Making Up"-- the movie!

Happy Chanukah, indeed!

love,
abby

Billy, baby, bubby, I TOLD YOU it would happen!!!! And I got to read it (trust me, Billy Blog readers, it's a good book).
To quote one of my favorite writers,
"AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!"
Let me buy you a drink when I'm in LA. I am so, so happy for you.

How exciting! Congratulations! I can't wait to read it.

Tom Green

Well done Billy. Great news.

Ann Wesley Hardin

Oh, BTW Billy, I don't think you're in Periphery anymore :)

glenn

That's awesome!!! Congrats! Make sure you get the herky-jerky dance on video. That could be worth money to someone someday. :)

Glenn

Denise

I hate using this word, but it's one of those times when it seems appropriate...

AWESOME!!!!

Daniel W.

Mazel tov, Billy, and tell us. . . what do we have to do to get our hands on an advance copy?

jenny

Yay!!!! Congratulations! I can't wait to read it when it comes out. :)

adam

Fantastico! I will be most pleased to have it on my bookshelf.

Again, GREAAAAT!!

Annie Dennison

CONGRATULATIONS, Billy!

Will get a copy as soon as it comes out. Keeping my fingers crossed for Fall 2007.

And, of course, I'm going to want you to sign it ;-)

HH

Shaye Areheart is a tony subimprint of a top imprint, indeed. The German owners of RH know how to make lederhosens full of Euros. Bravo.

Now get your agent to post the deal on Publishers Marketplace.

http://www.publishersmarketplace.com/deals/

And your producing partner's name is Brian Brightly. That's possibly as silly-sounding as my own.

Scott the Reader

Nice work, and well-deserved. Kudos.

writergurl

That's SO great! I couldn't have happened to a nicer guy! Congrats and I'll be looking for you to autograph my hardcover copy of your book!

Congrats!

writergurl

Damn typos!

"It" couldn't have happened to a nicer guy!

"I" haven't happen to a guy in a looong time! ;)

Congrats again!

Ruth Yunker

FABULOUS!!!!!!!

CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!

CELEBRATE CELEBRATE CELEBRATE!!!!!
