…thanks to some breaking reporting from DC Women Kicking Ass last night.
I have two words for you:
Oh, wait, and another one: FALLOUT.
Lois Lane is getting a YA Novel by @gwenda http://t.co/TPOu9B9LzB

But there is still more fun news to come. And more of the great teasers Switch/Capstone have designed. Here's today's — voila!

I am completely overwhelmed — in the best possible way — by the reaction to the news. Because Lois deserves that reaction!
Lois is an icon, of course, a superhero without any superpowers . . . except her unmatched bravery and smarts. Not to mention her sense of humor and her commitment to truth and justice. She's also one of my all-time favorite characters — which is why I jumped at the chance to write a novel featuring a teen Lois, moving to Metropolis and becoming a reporter for the first time. As I said yesterday, it's been an incredible honor to do this project and work with the fantastic teams at Capstone/Switch Press and DC. And, most of all, to get to put Lois front and center in the starring role, obviously. (Plus fun to write lots of banter with her maybe-more-than-a-friend from Kansas, screen name SmallvilleGuy.)
Also from last night:
She did. RT @Gwenda: Because Lois is…LOIS. And I want to do the character justice. I hope that I did and that you guys think so too.

That was my editor @bethbrez — and now I think I've got something in my eye. Definitely something in my eye.

Now for a geeky photo…
Me and a compendium of some of Lois's greatest moments + a T-shirt Christopher got me for x-mas + in the background a Daily Planet toy with lego Lois and a monkey finger puppet perched on top:
Super-excited to have this secret out in the world so I can share it with all of you fellow Lois fans.
Now back to trying to finish a different book entirely and prepare for Dragon Con. Another teaser tomorrow!
