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, .
ETA - Fall 2014.
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.
