Yeah, so....welcome to the blog of Judith Tewes, young adult contemporary fiction author. Here be edgy stories with a side of snark.

Drum Roll Please

Oh, my friends, if you'd be so kind, a little drum roll on the edge of the your computer desks please.

I'm thrilled to announce (dramatic auditorium echo) announce, announce....I've signed with Bloomsbury Spark, a new line Bloomsbury is just launching which markets to both young adult and new adult fiction readers - for my edgy young adult manuscript, MY SOON TO BE SEX LIFE.

ETA - Fall 2014.


Bloomsbury is the original home of Harry Potter and to be affiliated with this big-gun publisher, as they're embarking on a new endeavour - well, that's a heady thing. Bloomsbury Spark is a "digital first" line, meaning their titles will be released as ebook initially - when they reach a certain level of success they'll be made available in print. Spark titles will be marketed at the same level of their print line counterparts, will have an engaging online presence, and aren't restricted to a specific genre.

It's a wild-and-crazy-cool time to be in publishing. For publishers, it can be challenging to keep up with trends, changing technology, and the ever evolving expectations of readers. From a writer's perspective - there's a smorgasbord of opportunities. Pitfalls exist, certainly, and writers need to keep their wits about them, but entrepreneurial spirits will navigate the land mines and see the potential.

I can't wait dive into edits with Meredith Rich, our fearless leader, and meet the other Bloomsbury Spark authors. Perhaps I'll arrange some blog interviews to introduce you to them as well.

RANDOM ASIDE: Always wanted to know how drum rolls work? Let this kid show you.
