The year is nearly over. It’s been a year chock full of events, news, and things, so it doesn’t completely surprise me that we are two months away from our Debut Year. That is very, very exciting.
Let’s get to our news. (There’s a LOT of news this month!)
Elle Cosimano’s Nearly Gone has a newly designed website.
New sales and rights:
Nicole Maggi has sold books two and three in her Twin Willows Trilogy to her publisher, Medallion Press. Each of her books will be published six months after the other beginning with Winter Falls in December 2014, so we won’t have to wait three years to read them all. Congrats, Nicole!
Reviews and Blurbs:
Tracy Holczer‘s The Secret Hum of a Daisy has gotten a blurb from Richard Peck! He says, “Tracy Holczer’s story is a lyric about love and loss and not being able to find your future until you’ve uncovered your past.”
Jessica Love has gotten two blurbs for Push Girl. Hate List author Jennifer Brown calls it “Tender, inspirational, and, most of all, important.” And National Book Award Finalist Deb Caletti says that it’s an “Honest, feisty, and painfully real story.”
Amber Lough has gotten two blurbs for The Fire Wish. Daughter of Smoke and Bone‘s Laini Taylor calls it “a fantastically compelling and romantic read from a shining new voice. I want more!” Tamora Pierce says, “War, magic, and romance kept me reading nonstop!” (No, I can’t believe it either. Really.)
Julie Murphy has gotten a blurb from Jennifer Echols. She says Side Effects May Vary is “a funny and touching novel about a strong-willed heroine who finds facing death simple, and facing life heart-wrenchingly complicated. A real original.”
