The News I Have Been Waiting to Share!

I will put up a longer and more detailed blog post later this week about my path to publication, but right now, I am so excited that I can barely string together a coherent sentence. So, here is the short of it...

My co-author Lindsay Currie and I have sold not one, but TWO books to Brian Farrey at Flux! We are grateful to everyone who has helped us on this journey so far, and tremendously excited to be working with such a brilliant editor. More to follow, but for now, here's the PM announcement:

March 28, 2013

Children's:
Young Adult
Trisha Leaver and Lindsay Currie's LEAVING EDEN, in which three teens en route to a concert have car trouble leaving them stranded in an eerie rural town that is cut off from civilization and populated by a radical cult whose leader is determined to keep the community pure from outside influences at all costs, even murder, to Brian Farrey-Latz at Llewellyn, in a nice deal, in a two-book deal, for publication in Fall 2014, by Kevan Lyon at Marsal Lyon Literary Agency, representing Trisha Leaver, & Kathleen Rushall at Marsal Lyon Literary Agency, representing Lindsay Currie (World English).
