I recommend you keep your traditional drawing style. Drawing Venn diagrams in a variable-width ascii font is too hard. :-)

Kathy said...

I am so excited for you! I bookmarked your site a few weeks ago and LOVE reading you! Many many congratulations, and I'll surely be first in line when your book tour swings through my city!

And just last week on NPR the commentator was talking about diagramming sentences and lawdy, that brought me back!

Hooray! A book!!

lizzyshoe said...

Chaucer's Bitch said...

That's becuse you know how to diagram sentences! Whoo-hoo! If sentence diagraming was a prerequisite to getting published the quality of print material would go through the roof overnight.

Roy said...

Mazel tov, and I'll be getting a copy to remind me how to think mathematically and creatively at the same time.

BiblioDiva said...

Of course you got a book deal! Indexed is awesome. Congratulations.

austin said...

awesome! congrats! although, not surprising given the awesomeness.

Anonymous said...

Terrific news for you! Of course, anyone who can baseline diagram a sentence deserves a book deal, IMHO.

Northern_Girl said...

Fantastic news! You SO deserve it!

Chrissy said...

yay! so glad!

Anonymous said...

Woo hoo.
How do we get our copies autographed?!

Noel said...

Very very cool.

Keep up the good work.

Lynn Jericho said...

Jessica,
Congratulations.

Please hold on to as many rights as you can. You deserve to make money from you ingenious talent. Otherwise you will be doing a diagram that shows everyone making money but you. Indexed is much more than a book. Let me know if you would like to be connected to a friend of mine who does similar work, has a great book out and would like to create more product but between the agent, publisher and branding consultant - there would be nothing left for him.

don't let the thrilling excitement of a penguin contract make you financially foolish.

Tim said...

Do you need me to tell you that Indexed rocks the house? 'Cuz it does . . . and now we have additional proof in the form of your book contract. The free market works! (Sometimes.)

Rock on!

Sandra said...

Well deserved!!!!!! Congrats!

Dan said...

Congrats!!!!! I want two!! I don't know what I'll do with the other one, but I'll worry about that later.

Laaw-yuhr said...

Fantastic! You and Postsecret are the blog breakout stars.

Yuri said...

congratulations!!!

Robert said...

Congratulations, I can't wait to buy one or two or three!
Also, coming from a party school it's in my blood to say...DRINKS ARE ON ME!

HOW EXCITING!!! You must be thrilled. I am! :)

showme said...

josiepm said...

Yay! Another book to add to my wish lists. ^^

Shan said...

This book will be great for everyone, and will sell as an excellent gift! Next up, a regular appearance in the newspaper?! I hope so.

Shan said...

Also, I foresee different editions based on theme (relationships, entertainment, politics, etc.) This is the start of an empire!

Congratulations, Jessica.

Mike said...

Congratulations! You totally deserve this!

Eddy Shergar said...

Your success is well deserved - looking forward to the book!

Nancy said...

I agree, it's wonderful news and not surprising at all!

Anonymous said...

You are receiving a lot of Kudos on this one. So many, in fact, that they are bring out the reactance in me.
So I'm NOT going to tell you congratulations. And I'm NOT going to tell you that it's great. And I'm NOT going to tell you how I read your page daily.
And I'm NOT going to tell you about how I too will be looking forward to the release date.
I will, however, wish you well, and wish you a great day.
;)

MacBigot said...

Awesome news! We'll look forward to sharing you now with our 'disconnected' friends and family (they have such a hard time understanding our social circles...).

Hope it far out-sells your highest expectations!

Scott said...

Fantastic! I recently discovered your interesting and unique site and couldn't be happier for your good fortune. Congratulations from all of us at Scott's Spot!

ECOPHOTOS said...

Congrats on your book deal (remember I advised you to copyright your blog entries!!). About the "book deal," I am not sure "book" should be treated as a descriptor. Perhaps the words "book deal" should be given equal weight, grammatically speaking, as if they were hyphenated.

Rachel said...

Congrats. I'm a medical librarian, and several of my librarian colleagues and I kick a huge kick out of the Boolean humor on your blog.

Adjil said...

Hooray!

Brent said...

That's awesome...and well deserved. I know I will buy multiple copies.

Hans Mundahl said...

Yay! Well done!

pilgrimparent said...

Weird that I was just thinking yesterday all this stuff should be in a book. Congratulations!

Sophie said...

Congratulations! You've picked such a great concept here - simple and accessible, with perception and wit to back it up. Go you!

Congrats!!! That's awesome.

I've been stalking your blog (and forcing it upon my friends) for months. Congratulations! You deserve it! I can hardly wait for the page a day calendar.

Good for you. Getting a book deal feels good.

Nimmy said...

Jessica,
First of all, Congrats! :) I actually caught myself wondering how fantastic it would be if you were to publish a book out of the wonderful posts you have and within a few days, I get to hear this!! :) I am surely gonna buy it and gift some to people as well!!

-Quite some time back, a friend from blogosphere had passed on a Blog meme called "5 Blogs that make me think" and I'd listed your blog as one of the 5 Blogs that make me think. :) Now, that obviously means you're tagged - The blogs that make you think are the ones which are tagged as well. :) I don't know if you'll want to take a break from Venn Diagrams and pass on this meme for a change. But if you decide to do it, it will be great! :) Here's the link....

As one other person said... I'm gonna go out and buy 12 copies and give them to everyone I know, people on the street, etc....

Amazing!
