And the title is...

Congratulations to everyone who figured out that this

can't be de-coded to read this

Cross My Heart and Hope To Spy

Yep. That's officially the title of the sequel to I'D TELL YOU I LOVE YOU BUT THEN I'D HAVE TO KILL YOU.

Do you like it? I really like it.

Coming up with this title was much, much more difficult than the LYKY title that literally just came out as I was typing the first ever email to my agent, pitching her the idea.

This one required gathering long lists of cliches and many many hours of googling hit.

I don't know exactly when the book will hit shelves--just that it will be sometime in the fall of 2007. (Also, FYI, the paperback version of LYKY will be out next spring!)

If and when I know more specifics, I'll share. I promise. Cross my heart...

Now, the moment you've all been waiting for: THE WINNERS!

Here are the superspies who successfully broke the code in record time:

Under 18 Category: Victoria S, Kami E, and an honorable mention to Kristin B.

18 & Over Category: Kelsey W and Paul

School: Louisville HS Book Club, Woodland Hills, CA.; and Kinz and Friends

Blogger: Jennifer Lynn Barnes

(Winners, I'll be contacting you soon to make arrangements for delivering your fun prizes.)

Many, many thanks to everyone who took part. I hope it was as fun and educational for you as it was for me.

I''ll be going through all of your 'I'M TERRIBLE WITH NUMBERS" entries over the weekend and hopefully I'll be able to post the finalists early next week.

Happy Thanksgiving!

It was fun. :)

Yesterday afternoon, I discussed the premise of LYKY with a teen who just started reading it on Monday. (We traded books. She gave me ANGELICA by Sharon Shinn.) I'm sure she'll finish it this holiday weekend, and I'll pass her comments on to you.
