I’m thrilled to share some good news to get this holiday break off to an excellent start! First, let’s announce the winners of our contests, shall we? First up, Anne C. wins a kt literary tote bag for her picture with her copy of Anna and the French Kiss. Anne, email me your mailing address, and I’ll get your bag in the mail to you after the new year! And Becka (Fie Eoin) wins a galley of Small Persons With Wings for her imaginary pony friend — with wings! Becka, send me your address via email, please!
And now, more good news! As you may recall, back in August I participated in the online writers conference WriteOnCon, contributing a presentation on query don’ts and taking part in an online pitch session via live chat. Well, I’m thrilled to announce that I just signed a new client who “attended” WriteOnCon, and I look forward to shopping her MG novel next year. Everyone, please welcome Rebecca Petruck to the kt literary stable of authors! You can learn more about Rebecca on my clients page. As for her novel, it’s exactly the kind of “boy book” I’ve been asking for and looking for all year.
I’ll have even more good news to share in January, of five new deals for new books I recently closed. It’s been a very happy holiday season, indeed!
And stay tuned on Friday for a final About My Query for the year — yes, on Christmas Eve!
