Yeehaw!

Dear LJ,

I'm happy to inform you that my (Dutch) YA novel Daughter of Jinn will be published in August or thereabouts.

With suppressed glee,

yrs Bo

it's the novel that I entered the contest with. It's such a strange story...I decided to enter 2 hours before deadline, on New Year's Eve. I had about 1/3 of it and then had gotten stuck two years ago. I wrote the rest in two months and delivered essentially a first draft to the publisher. I mean, things generally don't happen that fast in publisher country....:-)

I got the bit about hoping that the book becomes a best seller. (I took 3.5 years of German in college.)
