What do you do when you have good news…and can’t share it? Do you just want to burst with the excitement?

That’s how we’re feeling here in Carpenter Country. We’ve gotten word that our next young adult novel–tentatively titled A Ghost in the Gardens and featuring a spunky young lady named Chrysantha–is on the short list for acceptance at a publishing house we’d love to be a part of.

And that’s all we can share at the moment…but you can be sure we’ll post the news as soon as we can, and you’ll be the first to know!

While we’re waiting, how about sharing your own good news? Let us know what’s going on with you in the comments!
