Most of you probably don't know this, but Daniel and I have been working on various humorous picture book manuscripts together and I have been working on a YA novel.
Today we signed with Super Agent Stephen Barbara of Foundry Literary + Media. We met Stephen in Bologna in 2008 and I love his taste in books (some of the authors he represents: Lauren Oliver, Leila Sales, PJ Bracegirdle, Betsy Bird, and Jack D. Ferraiolo). So I was floored when I got the *best e-mail ever* from Stephen this morning (I am printing it out and framing it).
This is amazing news!!
But....it also means I have a very tight deadline now and will have to concentrate on writing until Feb 28th. The downside of that is that I'm going to have to reduce the scope of Dystopian February. I will still be offering giveaways, reviews and interviews this month...just not as many as originally planned.
The upside is that there is now a very real chance you may one day get to read my books! And that is incredibly exciting.
And in case you are wondering what the YA is about - yes it has dystopian elements. How could it not?! More will definitely be revealed in time.
For now....YAY! I am a writer.
