The Most Interesting Thing: Little Green Buddy Gets a Book Contract

"I've been trying to get published for five years and this obnoxious alien gets a book deal on his first try."

Yes. It's true. Ace Hansen will have a book published before me. The beautiful people at MuseItUp publishing were brave enough to take on this gassy MG novel inspired by a breath mint commercial.

To celebrate, Ace is making a HUGE sacrifice and will send a big bag of gummy worms to the person who tweets the funniest link to this blog post (on Twitter.) Ace would love it if you'd follow him on Twitter, too. He gets lonely out there in cyberspace.

And just for fun, I (Angelina) will award (3) first page critiques (query or manuscript) to random commenters who also tweet about this announcement. Just tell us you did it. We'll believe you.

We'll announce the winners here next Friday. Sound fair?

Now clap your hands and jump up and down for Ace. His antennae will pick up the vibration. ^_^

  7. I recall Ace commenting on my blog a few months back. I was all, like, WHO is this character?? I began my search (stalk), which led me to his Twitter account and website. I was stumped, and bravely Tweeted "him". *giggles* why did I NOT pay attention to his last name? So, the joke was on me, but oh, it was hilarious! I'm so thrilled for (you) him and his book deal. *Squeals*

    Off to tweet. :)
