New Book Deal for Jenny Gardiner

Last year, LLLer Jenny Gardiner landed a new agent. Now she has more good news to share:

"My humorous memoir, PARROTHOOD: Twenty Years of Caring for a Vengeful Bird Determined to Kill Me, will be published by Simon Spotlight, spring 2010, in HARDCOVER!"

Here's the Publishers Marketplace announcement:
Author of SLEEPING WITH WARD CLEAVER Jenny Gardiner's PARROTHOOD, pitched as "Marley & Me with parrots," about a disgruntled African Gray parrot and the owner who loves her despite the bird's best efforts to quite literally bite the hand that feeds her, to Emily Westlake at Simon Spotlight Entertainment, by Holly Root at Waxman Literary Agency (World English).
Big congrats all around! (And who says publishers aren't acquiring books?)
