Soooo, I can finally share my AWESOMELY FAB news!!! My lovely agent Jenn Mishler ( at Literary Counsel), sold my YA contemporary romance entitled The Romeo Club to Georgia McBride at Swoon Romance, in a two book deal. The Romeo Club will have a May 2014 release date.
So for those of you keeping track (GAH–this is crazy insane), I’ll now have The Legend of Me releasing December 2013, The Romeo Club releasing May 2014, and The Winter People releasing June 2014. HOLY BOOKS!!!
I’m super excited for everyone to read The Romeo Club. It was such a FUN write. And this is the book I got the title idea for from a spam email (which was actually advertising er…adult things). My daughter’s excited for everyone to read about C.C. (one of the nerdy guys from the book who’s super flipping hilarious) and I can’t wait for you all to meet him and the rest of the cast of TRC, I hope you’ll love this story as much as me.
I have to thank my FAB crit group (YAFF), you ladies are awesome and help to make every story WAY better than it started out. I love you ladies so much!!! And of course, my FREAKING AWESOME agent, Jenn Mishler, who lets me talk about crazy stuff that has nothing to do with writing (stalker cats who can open doors–hehehe). Lastly, have to give a giant shout out to my teen daughter Erin (who is beautiful, funny, and honest) for reading through my first draft of The Romeo Club and encouraging me to hurry up and finish so she could see what happened next. Between her and my sister nagging me to write this, I was able to crank it out in a short time and have fun writing something outside my comfort zone (contemporary YA Romance).
This has been a blessed year on the writing front. This is the 2nd book deal Agent Jenn has brokered for me this year. She’s a ROCK STAR who believes in my stories and champions them! MWAH!!!! Will post the official PM announcement in my News Tab when it’s posted!!!!
