I’m thrilled to announce:
Jackson Pearce’s second novel, SISTERS RED, a modernization of Little Red Riding Hood meets Buffy the Vampire Slayer, to Jill Dembowski and Andrea Spooner at Little, Brown, in a pre-empt, in a two-book deal, by Jenoyne Adams at Bliss Literary Agency (world). email@example.com
Yesterday I gave my grandfather’s eulogy; at the exact moment that I was getting up to do so, my agent was calling to let me know about Little Brown’s offer. I couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful way to end the day, and I know Papa would have been so, so proud and happy for me.
I’m a little overwhelmed and still somewhat dazed at how fortunate I am, to have houses like Little Brown and Harper Collins publishing my books with such enthusiam. I feel a little like I’m living in a Lifetime movie or something. Shall I cue the sappy music and questionable hairstyles?
