SUZIE SOLD MY BOOKS!!!!
I’ve been dying to spill this news. DYING, I tell you! At long last, I’m allowed. Publisher’s Marketplace had this wonderful little announcement in it this morning.
Nikki Loftin’s debut novel THE SINISTER SWEETNESS OF SPLENDID ACADEMY, pitched as Coraline meets Hansel and Gretel, about a young girl whose seemingly delightful new school hides frightening secrets, to Laura Arnold at Razorbill, in a two-book deal, for publication in Summer 2012, by Suzie Townsend at Fineprint Literary Management (World).
Oh, I’m going to have a TON of stories to tell about this process — The contracts have been signed for months, I’ve already had my editing letter, finished the first revision, have it ready to send back to Laura in a few days… I went to New York and MET her!! (She is a DOLL!) Oh, lots of stories. But for today, just this: Thank you Suzie Townsend, for making this happen for me.
And thank you, Writer Friends, for everything.
