I find EEK to be a really useful word, which is why I overuse it so shamelessly. Facebook friends will confirm that I EEK at every opportunity. There is no anniversary, anecdote or lame joke that I won’t EEK at. I even EEK at photos of peoples’ lunches, cats, etc, etc. Especially the cats.
That causes a problem when there is something that’s really worth EEKing about. Like now. What can I possibly say?
I recently signed with a brilliant agent from a brilliant literary agency. Therese Coen, are you sure you didn’t confuse me with someone else? And thanks to my brilliant agent, Blaggard’s has just been sent to some of the best publishers of kids’ lit in the UK. And she’s subbing it at the Frankfurt Book Fair next week.
All I can say is - yes, you've guessed it -EEEEK!
