As for my title up there, remember when I promised that the SECOND my deal was listed on PublishersMarketplace I was going to paste it over here?
Well that day has come! Oh, and I guess now I can finally share that we also sold to Germany. I've been keeping that one under my hat for a while. ;)
For those of you who've never seen PM announcements, here's what they look like (albeit scrunched up to fit in my skinny column):
September 22, 2011
AG Howard's SPLINTERED, an urbanized gothic retelling of ALICE'S ADVENTURES IN WONDERLAND, in which a sixteen-year-old descendant of Alice Liddell (real life inspiration for the Lewis Carroll novel), realizes the story was true when she is pulled into the darker side of Wonderland to fix the things her great-great-great grandmother Alice put wrong, to Maggie Lehrman at Abrams Amulet, in a good deal, in a two-book deal, at auction, by Jenny Bent at The Bent Agency (World English).
Me's a very happy writer today (and the fact that it's my mom's birthday, too, only makes it sweeter). I've dreamt of this moment for years, and can't wait to be celebrating each of your PM announcements in the near future!
Thanks for indulging my impromptu silliness, and have a wonderful weekend. Hope to see you on Monday for some poetry. :)
