Guess what!?!

From Publishers Marketplace:
February 9, 2009 Fiction:
General/Other
Allie Larkin's STAY, pitched as in the tradition of Emily Giffin and Claire Cook, the story of a woman whose relationship with a loveable Slovakian German Shepherd helps her recover from heartbreak after the love of her life marries her best friend, to Erika Imranyi at Dutton, in a pre-empt, for publication in 2010, by Rebecca Strauss at McIntosh & Otis.
Yeah, that's me. That's my book. And I feel like the luckiest girl in the whole wide world right now, for getting to work with my awesome agent and amazing editor on this book. I love my main character so much, and I'm thrilled that she's in such good hands.

Big congrats, Allie!

If the story you placed in The Summerset Review is any indication, this is a terrific novel.

That's incredible! Congratulations!

Even if I disappear from blogland in the meantime, you'll have to email me when it goes to press so I can be sure to buy a first edition.

Just awesome.
