I didn’t write a post last month because I’ve been saving a delicious little tidbit of news. After much ado, handwringing, and more rounds of revisions than I care to count…MY BOOK SOLD! Cue wide-eyed expression of awe.
Now that it’s officially official, I’m so thrilled to announce that my rockstar agent Jennifer Chen Tran sold THE ART OF ESCAPING to Amberjack Publishing last month. It’s slated for release in June of 2018. I can’t wait to start working with Amberjack to make the novel the best it can be.
For those curious about the publishing process or currently dealing with the anxiety-provoking surrealness of being on submission, this book was on sub for close to a year. I got a lot of helpful feedback from the first round of editors who passed, which I used for some major revisions before the book went out to another round of editors. Because my revisions involved blowing up and basically rewriting the first third of the novel, I ran those chapters by pro-editor Tanya Gold (I highly recommend her, by the way), along with a few of my usual CPs/betas. I will have A LOT of people to thank in the acknowledgements for this one.
In other exciting news, I finished the first round of edits on my latest novel and sent it off to my agent last week. Hopefully I’ll be able to announce another deal in the nearish future.
