Boo! Happy Fourteenth Day!

We have a LOT of happy news for October. (It’s almost as if, I don’t know, we’re getting close to our debut year, or something.)

New books/rights:

Heidi Schultz has sold a picture book to Bloomsbury Kids that will be out in 2015–and it sounds adorable: Giraffes Ruin Everything.

Livia Blackburne has published a novella that takes place in the world of her debut novel. It’s called Poison Dance, and believe me, it’s really, really, really fantastic! It’s on sale for .99 cents at Amazon, Nook, Kobo, and iBooks, so take a look!

Julie Murphy has sold the Australian rights to her novel, Side Effects May Vary.  Woohoo!!!

14KidLit in the news/media/lists:

Tess Sharpe‘s Far From You has been selected as an Indies Introduce Pick for Spring 2014. Congrats, Tess!

Kate Kelly‘s novel Red Rock was reviewed in The Guardian. (That’s a big deal, you guys.)

The Fourteenery had its 10 Seconds of Fame on BuzzFeed. (Buzzfeed!)
