A funny thing that happens when you’re a writer is you find yourself in text and dm threads with other writers, the subject of which is mostly all the shit you can’t talk about. Some of it, you just don’t want to jinx it before the check clears. Some of it, it’s not real until it is. You’ve got a writer friend who’s sold UK rights but it hasn’t been announced yet. Another writer friend just found out a massive name author is reading their book for a blurb but
Woo-hoo!! And please narrate the audio book. (Cate Blanchett is amazing, but I missed your voice when she narrated parts of "Leaving".)
What tremendous news! I’m thrilled for you. And for all of us who’ll get to follow your adventures with Woody as you trek around this crazy country. Congratulations, Lauren!
CONGRATS! Thrilled for you and Woody, and for the rest of us who will get to read it! Also it’s so fucking great to see good things happen to good people. YAY.
This is going to rule so fucking hard. Congrats!! (I never thought I’d sell a second book either. Maybe no one believes till it actually happens.)
I'm catching up on old post and I wanted to say 'Yay! Go you!'
Congratulations! Super excited to read this.
Fantastic. Come through Chicago, we got you!
Congrats! Can't wait.
Was just last week telling some (mostly younger) friends that Travels With Charley is by far the best Steinbeck book. And you’re by far the best person to take up that mantle. Congrats and I can’t goddamn wait!
Congrats, Lauren! I can’t wait to read it.
Holy shit!!! That's AMAZING!!! Please come to New York!!
Yay!!! I live it when people get good news (and share it).
Can't wait for your words.......
Congratulations! Can’t wait to read it.
