You Heard It Here First!

Well, Buzz Blog readers, you really are on the cutting edge. You are the very first group to hear my announcement (and it's a good one, too).

Drumroll and fireworks please...

OH. MY. GODS. (aka my first novel) has just been optioned for TV by a company called FREEMANTLE on behalf of ASHLEY TISDALE!!!!!!!!!


Yes, Ashely Tisdale (of High School Musical and Suite Life fame) will spend the next year deciding whether she wants to turn OMG into a TV show (or made for TV movie, I'm not sure). Ashley Tisdale, who just happens to have been voted Most Perfect Stella in my Casting Call contest last week, might actually wind up starring in it.

The high I'm feeling right now is second only to the high of selling my book in the first place. In other words, I am beyond on top of the world.

Hugs,
TLC

That's amazing, Tera! I even know who she is--my boys, though they will NOT admit it, enjoyed High School Musical and the sequel, and also that cartoon Fineas and Ferb in which Ashley does the voice of the sister. Way to go! Hope it works out.
