Fellow Corker, Robin Mellom scores 2 book deal with Disney-Hyperion!

Exciting news is going on in the Corker world. You don't know what the Corkers are, do you.

Literary Agent Extraordinaire Jill Corcoran has provided a forum for all of her clients to mingle and meet each other, commiserate on harships such as, oh, the writing process and celebrate fun and joy such as, oh, the writing process and also celebrate each others successes.

Enter, success.

Robin Mellom's debut DITCHED, pitched as THE HANGOVER for teens, in which a girl finds herself lying in a ditch the morning after her prom with no memory of the last twelve hours which includes a disappearing prom date, a Tinkerbell tattoo, and a dog-swapping escapade, to Christian Trimmer at Disney-Hyperion, in a very nice deal, in a two-book deal, for publication in Winter 2012, by Jill Corcoran at The Herman Agency.

There have been other success stories among the Corkers lately and I am stoked for everyone, but I only just thought of sharing the stokedness with the world, um, today.

And how great does Ditched sound? I reckon it will be hilarious. :D

Congratulations Robin! And Jill and yay for Christian Trimmer at Disney-Hyperion, as it sounds like he has awesome taste. :D

More later. You know, when I have the internet again and am not borrowing it all the time,
