So much fun stuff today! Head on over to Krista’s blog Mother. Write. Repeat. where my agent and I were interviewed about the query process for RUMP. Most of you probably know and follow Krista’s blog already. Not only is she an extremely talented writer (believe me I know) but she is also an invaluable resource for agent interviews and also query contests. As a matter of fact, I do believe an agent just recently signed an author found through Krista’s “An Agent’s Inbox” contest. Very cool!
And we announced in Publisher’s Marketplace today!
Liesl Shurtliff’s RUMP, a fairy tale retelling in which the reviled Rumpelstiltskin is recast as a young boy who has inherited both a spinning magic he doesn’t yet understand and only the most unfortunate part of his name, to Katherine Harrison at Knopf Children’s, by Michelle Andelman of Regal Literary (NA).
And last but not least, as all of you are starting NaNoWriMo, I just finished a first draft of my next book! So I will NOT be partaking in the festivities of word cramming. I’m catching up on reading as I let my book rest, and then I will tear it to shreds. Unless I get more edits for RUMP…then I will work on that. Working on two books at once is a little dizzying.
