Best way to kick off the holiday season (besides already having all your Christmas shopping done - yeahhh!): Selling a book!
I am excited to get to report that I have an offer for Dan's creepily fantastic manuscript, THE CLEARING! I'm working on finalizing details with the publisher, so I won't say anything else at the moment except that I am sooo happy for Dan - this deal is very much deserved. He is an amazing writer who has done a lot of work to get this story polished and perfect.
Trying to hussle together a couple more deals before holiday craziness/backlog sweeps the industry. Crunch time!
Also, I signed a new client today. She has an awesome adult historical fiction manuscript about Blackbeard, which I absolutely LOVE...I've noticed that I'm taking on a lot of historical fiction projects. My inner history buff seems to be coming out in full force!
P.S. Have you read the news about Simon & Schuster? Not sure how I feel about this one...
