If you follow me on twitter or on Facebook, you may know some or all of the following, but I thought it would be good to collect it all in one place, just in case you missed something.
LEVEL TWO sold in its first foreign territory - Brazil! How exciting is that? It has also sold in a few other territories so far, but I'm not allowed to announce yet. So stay tuned.
Old news for some, but you can add LEVEL TWO to your to-read list on GoodReads. I'm closing in on 400 people adding it ... way cool!
Do you know The Apocalypsies? It's a group open to all middle-grade and YA authors debuting their book in 2012, and it's a great way for you to get a sneak peek at all the awesome debut books that are due out next year. Follow us on twitter too - especially if you want to be the first to see our cover reveals! Oh and check out my Apocalypsies bio page.
I'm also part of a new group blog dedicated to sci-fi YA 2012 debuts: Brave New Words. In true YA publishing fashion, we are fifteen women and one 6'7 man. We'll be sharing stories about our paths to publication as well as other cool stuff. Stop by!
The finished LEVEL TWO manuscript is currently with my editor, so while I'm waiting for her feedback, I'm spinning ideas for the possible sequel (LEVEL THREE?) as well as mapping out other projects such as picture books and a super secret fab novel idea. I'm also trying to catch up on my reading and get a head start on Dystopian August - which is just around the corner.
If only my cats wouldn't be so clingy and always want to lay on my hands ...
