Couldn't be prouder!

Two years ago a quiet young woman turned up in our summer intern group.  Once we got her talking, she was hilarious and fun.  Then she showed us her brilliant taste and incredible work ethic.  By the time summer was over, while we were glad she got a job we wept when she left.  Fortunately, she liked us too and came back to visit often.

Thus it was with great pride and affection I read in Publishers Marketplace:

Jaime Reed's debut SOUL IMPULSE, about a 17-year-old girl who discovers her co-worker at the local bookstore is a Cambion, the offspring of an incubus and human, who must feed off of other girls' souls to survive - and while trying to protect herself, she falls for him, to Selena James at Dafina, in a three-book deal, by !!!Kathleen Ortiz!!! at Lowenstein Associates (World). 

There's really only one thing to say: Yayyyyyy!!

Yay @KOrtizzle!

Good for her! By the way, I've met a few soul suckers before.

Kathleen Ortiz said...

Aww, you so sweet :D

(I'm not so quiet now, huh? lol)

I like the "come back to visit often" especially considering she is right now sitting on the bordello couch behind me.
