It's pub date and I have HUGE news!

Today is the official publication date for THE OTHER LIFE and my agent said I can let the cat out of the bag, so here goes ...

THE OTHER LIFE has been optioned by HBO for a TV series!

I found this out over the summer and was gobsmacked. This is the best news I ever got.

Understand that this is an option, which means it could be a while before I find out if the show will actually be produced, but I am over the moon!

Of course, I hope you'll want to read the book first ... maybe even buy your copy today. (Those early sales make all the difference!) You can find it at your favorite bookstore ... or online.

That's amazing! Congratulations! I can't wait to read the book and watch the series if it's really going to be produced (gosh, I'm crossing my fingers for it). You go, Ms. Ellen! :D

I've said it before and I'll say it again: You are a superstar, Ms. Meister!

Cannot wait until the mailman comes today with my copy of The Other Life because USPS tracking says it's here! So if I am missing from the Internet for the next couple of days, everyone will know why. :)
