In which I announce a book deal!

Thrilled doesn’t even begin to cover how happy I am about this news. I’ve known since Monday but was asked to keep quiet until official announcements were made. I practically had to sit on my hands to comply, but now I’ve been given the okay so here it is…I got a book deal! Not just any book deal, but a two-book deal with Delacorte Press/Random House!  RANDOM HOUSE, PEOPLE!


Here’s the official Publishers Marketplace announcement:


Michelle Krys’s THE WITCH HUNTER’S BIBLE, in which a snarky sixteen-year-old cheerleader is forced into a centuries-old war between witches and sorcerers only to uncover the first of many dark truths about her life, to Wendy Loggia at Delacorte, in a good deal, in a two-book deal, by Adriann Ranta at Wolf Literary Services (World). 


An actual book is going to have my name on it and be sold in bookstores! My agent rocks my world. 


If anyone needs me, I’ll be in the corner puking and dying of happiness.
