I HAVE DIED AND GONE TO HEAVEN !!!!! !!! !! !!!!!!!

I might have said something about a particular author...the one that got me thinking I too could write a book.

His name is Bill Wallace, and he wrote "A Dog Called Kitty" as well as numerous other WONDERFUL animal stories. The man is an animal story writing MACHINE.

Well, guess where else Mr. Bill Wallace has written something FABULOUS?

WANNA GUESS???

ON THE FRONT OF MY BOOK COVER !!!

That's right! (Envision this in all caps because man would that be hard to write.)

Mr Bill Wallace, the legendary animal writer, blurbed POSSUM SUMMER !!!!!!!

*OMG* *FLAIL* *DIES* *TWITCHES SOME MORE*

"A heartwarming, vibrant story.”
–Bill Wallace, author of A Dog Called Kitty"

And there you have it, kids. I've officially died and gone to heaven.

EDIT - but wait! There's MORE!

THE FULL QUOTE::::

"Jen K. Blom's Possum Summer, is a heartwarming, vibrant story of a western Oklahoma 'country' girl [that] mixes themes of honor, resolve, and courage with just the right blend of adventure, excitement, humor, danger, love, compassion, and a small touch of romance. It's a book that middle graders will want to read. The author should brace herself for all the letters and emails she'll receive asking 'did this really happen?' --Bill Wallace, author of A Dog Called Kitty and many other books
