    yippee!!! I just followed the link to the first two pages of TATTF and they’re just as good — nay, better, you revisor, you — than I remembered!

    I am so excited for you!!! I’m with B.E. Sanderson – I can’t wait to buy it.

    You’re on the next phase of this journey and if anyone deserves to be there it’s you!

    Yep, Super-squee all the way around thrown in with some snoopy dancing, cyber chocolate, and cyber wine.

    Can’t wait till the August meeting to hear you say it outloud!!!

    YAY YAY YAY!!! This is just the best news ever! I’m so super excited for you because I want everyone to be able to read TATTF — it rocks so much!

    Erica, you worked so hard for this moment and are truly an inspiration!!!

    Congratulations!!!

    *Bill exhales, takes the tape off his fingers and uncrosses them, flexes them to restore the blood flow, draws a deep breath, and SQUEEEEEES!!*

    Erica, this is the best news this particular fan of TATTF could have hoped for! (Aside, of course, from moving straight to publication!) As you know, I have always believed in the Tooth Fairy (well, at least since you introduced me to Daisy), and in your story’s eminent publication-worthiness. It’s nice to know that others are now sharing that belief.

    Let it further be said that it couldn’t happen to a nicer guy…er, gal…er, Maven. You have shared and given so much, and spread so much good karma around, that it was only a question of time, IMO, before the butterfly of happiness (see my comment of 7/19) alighted squarely on your head.

    I think the backstory of how you came to write TATTF will ultimately play a role in its success – it’s the stuff of legend! Perhaps you should do a post on it for those who may not know the story.

    I am very, very excited! Not just for you, but for the world of readers out there who will soon meet Trevor and Daisy for themselves.

    You go, girl!! Congratulations!!

    *Bill examines his purple finger and wonders if it was worth it and decides that it was*

    I just want to go on record here and now as the Maven who predicted this. Because I do seem to remember saying, several months ago, that Lauren seemed awfully excited about TATTF and that I thought she was going to offer you representation.

    It’s nice to be right ;->!

    Yay, Erica. And double-squee (even though I’ve been squeeing for about a week).
