I have been sitting on this news for at least a month and the possibility of this news for two months and it has been AGONY so without further ado:

"Tor Takes Debut Fantasy Trilogy by Doore

Diana Pho, an editor at Tor, acquired world rights for K.A. Doore’s debut fantasy trilogy, Assassins of Ghadid, in a deal brokered by Kurestin Armada of P.S. Literary. According to Armada, the trilogy centers on a desert city “where control over water means control over both life and magic itself.” Pho added that Doore’s work draws on “the cultures of sub-Saharan Africa and ancient Egypt” as well as queer romance. The publisher expects to begin publishing the books in winter 2019."

You can read the announcement in all of its gorgeous, Publisher's Weekly glory here if for some reason you don't believe me. I wouldn't blame you. I don't believe me.

Okay.

Now that you've read that.

OMFGBBQWTF

THREE BOOKS

THREE FUCKING BOOKS

TOR

FUCKING TOR

I LOVE TOR

...

I can't even. I've had two whole months to digest this and I still can't even. I know it's a cliche, but I have been writing and rewriting and editing and re-editing books since sixth grade. Since graduating college I have written/re-written a book almost every year and four (five?) years ago I started querying. I have almost given up so many times and I have wondered how long it would take, if it ever would, if it was worth not pursuing another career path, and I have suffered through a shit ton of self doubt and I have gotten my hopes up and crushed and received so many form rejections and then real(!!) rejections and and and

This is only the beginning, I hope. The start of a real, honest to god career. Please, please please, because I have so many more stories to write.

But before all that, I have a book to write (while somehow keeping an infant alive), because of course the one I have done will be the second book, of course.
