Further Evidence...

...that I have the Best and Cutest Editor Alive. From an email exchange this morning:

"I would cry, too. We could cry together. And then send each other cupcakes for comfort. And then cry into the cupcakes. And hence have to buy MORE cupcakes because we ruined the first batch. It would be a vicious, vicious cycle."

(Lest you worry for the sanctity of cupcake frosting, we have no reasons to cry. This is the same woman who, when asked if I should include Snow Patrol in my acknowledgements, said, "ABSOLUTELY YOU SHOULD." All cupcakes the world over are safe from my tears when Editor Erica is in charge.)

you're very lucky.

Kiersten White said...

I am VERY lucky. I feel incredibly fortunate for how wonderful and warm and genuinely delightful both my editor and agent are : )

Mama White said...

And what are we crying about? Enquiring Moms want to know!

Kiersten White said...

Oh, we're not crying about anything. I'm not sure what strange hypothetical led us to that statement. I just know it's one of my favorite statements EVER.

Marsha Sigman said...

She sounds wonderful. You just cannot beat a great sense of humor.

Kaela said...

That's fantastic! As if having an editor weren't enough, you get the bonus of counting her among your favorite people. That's so nice.

Claire Dawn said...

lol!

You and Natalie have such wonderful stories about your agenty/editory people.

I hope I'll be so lucky!

Mariah Irvin said...

You're including Snow Patrol in your acknowledgments? You get more awesome by the day!

Abby Stevens said...

But what kind of cupcake? I wouldn't be too concerned about tears ruining certain stale kinds I've seen at the grocery store. :P

Kiersten White said...

Abby! Honestly. Editor Erica and I would NEVER send each other stale, grocery store cupcakes. My goodness. : )

Mariah--Maybe ; )

And everyone else, yes, I feel SO lucky to work with the wonderful people I do!

Kristan said...

I want cute editors and awesome agents in my life too... But at least until I get them, I can live vicariously through yours! :D Thanks, hehehe.

And oh yeah, ARKFU! (Says your word verification.)

Samantha Bennett said...

I was worried about the frosting! All those tears could seriously compromise the sugar to salt ratio.

Abby Stevens said...

No? In that case, maybe you can send me one, too. I prefer chocolate.

:D He he

Tawna Fenske said...

Is it just me, or has everyone been talking about cupcakes lately? Cupcakes, cupcakes, cupcakes...will you make me some?

You're so lucky. She sounds fabulous. I wish she were my agent. Maybe someday.

Kristi said...

That was a pretty freakin' cute email. It made my day and it wasn't even written to me.

And now for some odd reason I am craving sugar and a sad movie...hmmm...coincidence? I think not. :-)

Jessie Oliveros said...

What is it with cupcakes and writers? I made cupcakes with my son last week. No tears, but he did sneeze into the batter.

Of course, when you're life story is transformed into a broadway musical, this exchange will be a show stopper.

I can see it all.

A flight of white steps.

200 dancing cupcakes.

Hardback copies of Paranormalcy fluttering overhead like doves.

And oh, oh — the singing!
