I'm not one of those people who imagines what they'll say under certain circumstances.  Especially moments like this one.  

This morning, Tor made an offer on the Psalms of Isaak and I accepted.  More details to follow but as you can imagine, there is much rejoicing in the West Scholes Forest Manor.  I've been very fortunate in how this has unfolded -- I've had my first choice of agent and editor and publisher -- all people who love this story.  And I've had a lot of help along the way to get here.  I'm awed and humbled by this.

I'm also grateful to a long, long list of others.  My wife, certainly, for constant support -- especially during the madcap frantic race I was in to write that first book.  And jaylake, who along with Jen, taunted me over dinner until I took their dare and started the project...and more Jay for loving the book the and guiding me along the path.  Then of course there's the Other Jenn, my extremely wonderful agent, who's patiently navigated me through the process of selling.  And John and Jerry and Jim and Aimee -- amazing eyes on the work, amazing souls to know.  The folks at Realms -- Shawna and Doug -- who put the story out into the world in the first place (and also dared me to write a novel with it.)  Patrick Swenson at Fairwood and Sean Wallace at Wildside -- they both know why.   And last but certainly not least, all of the folks at Tor who read and loved the book.  I know there are others to name -- if I've left anyone off, apologies.

Whew.  I've got a lot of books to write now.  I hope you all enjoy them.
