After two weeks off for the holidays, it always takes a while to get back up to speed. Add on top of that almost five months of being closed to queries, and I’m finding it a fun challenge to remember how to do my job sometimes! Anyway, Renee and I are going through all the queries that have come in since I reopened, and we’re excited to find someone new and brilliant. I’m also thrilled to share some news you may have already seen on Twitter or Tumblr:
Sara Goodman at St. Martin’s Press has bought a YA anthology called My True Love Gave to Me: Twelve Holiday Stories, edited by Stephanie Perkins, author of Anna and the French Kiss. The collection will feature 12 romantic tales of young love by celebrated YA authors, including Rainbow Rowell, David Levithan, Gayle Forman, Ally Carter, Holly Black, Kiersten White, Matt de la Peña, Laini Taylor, Jenny Han and Kelly Link. Publication is set for October 2014; Kate Schafer Testerman at KT Literary did the deal for North American rights.
Let’s start this new year running!
