I've been friends with Jessica Love for a while now, and to say she is one of my favorite people on this great bluish greenish brownish planet we call Earth is a vast understatement. Jessica Love is one of the best people I know, and I consider myself truly lucky to call her my actual IRL friend.

For the past few years I have been privileged enough to watch as Jessica embarked on her own journey to become a published YA author. It's been amazing to watch her go after her dream and even more amazing actually watching it come true.
That's right folks, my friend Jessica Love HAS A BOOK DEAL!!!!!!!!!!
You can read the specifics on her blog but the basic facts are she's co-writing a YA novel with Chelsie Hill from the Sundance Channel show, Push Girls. The story is a fictionalized account of Chelsie's life and will be published by St. Martin's Press!!!! I KNOW RIGHT?!?!!!!
It's so freaking exciting, and I highly doubt there is anyone on the planet that is happier for her than me. Watching this come true for her feels awesome and I can't wait to be the first in line to have her sign my copy of her book. That's getting published. Like a real book. (still not over it)
One of the most amazing things about Jess is how supportive she always is of other writers. Whenever one of her writing friends has amazing news she is always the biggest cheerleader and the first to break out the Dancing Banana.
Well Jess...it's my honor to do this for you. I'm so happy that it's finally your turn!!
Congratulations friend! You absolutely deserve it!!!
