Amy's Book Sold!

When Amy and I connected on Kiersten White's blog a while back, I knew right away that she was going to be special. Her prose was smooth and lyrical, and she had a knack for writing characters I genuinely cared about.

Of course, just because I knew she was going to be special didn't mean she had an easy road; as I'm sure you're well aware, this industry isn't big on doling out warm-fuzzies. But when she signed with Kate at the end of last year, I started to hope, and now I'm thrilled to announce that her MG novel-in-verse, RED BUTTERFLY, sold to Christian Trimmer at Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers!

For all the juicy details, check out Amy's announcement as well as last week's rights report on Publishers Weekly. I can't wait for you to meet--and fall in love with--Kara.

Yay, Charlie!

No problem, Amy! I'm one of your biggest fans:)

Thanks for checking it out, Karen!

I love this news, and I love when a fellow writer whose work I love gets such good news so I totally get why you are just as excited as Amy probably is. :)

Alison, if my manuscripts are like my kids, then my CPs' manuscripts are like my nieces and nephews. I want them to succeed as much as my own!

Tara, I think you'll love RED BUTTERFLY. Did you travels ever take you to China?

I love good news, too, Susan, especially when it involves someone as great as Amy:)

Me, too, Kimberly! I couldn't be happier!
