The Birthday of Albatross

Albatross is out officially out today!  Huzzah!  Also, it doesn’t seem quite real.

Micah, Daisy and Tess insist that it totally is quite real.

I’m going to go on a quest to find a copy in the wild, and then I’m going to sit around with my friends, allow them to buy me beverages, and make them read my favorite passages out loud (I am especially fond of chapter 17).  What?  It’s like it’s my book’s birthday, and on your birthday you get to do whatever you want, right?

But seriously, I am a million different kinds of happy and grateful that Albatross is out, that I got to tell this story, and that (hopefully) people will read it.  And (borrowed from the acknowledgments page) there are many awesome people who made this possible…

Endless thanks go to my agent, Kate Schafer Testerman, and my editor, Brian Farrey, and everyone at Flux who made this book-of-my-heart possible.

Deepest gratitude goes to my family, who have always made me feel loved and supported, and to my amazing and talented friends, both old and new.

And special love and appreciation go to my mom, who tells me “don’t have a wishbone where your backbone ought to be” whenever I need to hear it.

My joy is perhaps best summed up by one of my favorite songs:

Happy Birthday, book-of-my-heart.
