YA Series SOLD!

Oh, man am I excited!!! Got the word from my goddess-like agent today that the YA series my daughter is co-authoring with me sold!!! St. Martin's is the house, and it's a 3 book deal. Paranormal (vampire) YA - edgy and dark, but with a quirky sense of humor. Quite a few of you know that I've been teaching high school for the past 12 years or so, which means that even though the series is paranormal it will deal with real issues kids deal with today. And with my wonderful, talented daughter writing with me I can promise you the "reality" aspect of it has a firm foundation.

I'll announce the title, synopsis details, and release date details as soon as I get the green light!

Pop a bottle of bubbly with me!

SWEEEEEEEET!!!! I'll have a bubbly in your honor tonight. It'll probably be made from hops 'n' barley instead of French grapes, but the sentiment is the same.

I can't wait to read it. PC, I'm so psyched for you, girl!!

Thanks guys!! We are really jazzed about it! I can tell you that the working title of the series is The House of Night, Book 1 is The Sweetest Blood, Book 2 is The Betrayer's Touch (don't have a clue about book 3 title). But who knows if the publisher will keep the titles, although I hope so!
