We've signed a novel for Fall 2014. Yes, it surprised me too! Lemongrass Hope by Amy Impellizzeri is a quirky time-travel love story about whether or not we can choose our fate. I read the manuscript like a fan, gasping and rereading to be sure I was in the right place, and time. This one is wild!
A fun fact: I drafted Amy's contract on my birthday and the pub date is on Amy's birthday. I thought that was kinda cool.
We look forward to sharing ARCs next month . . .
I mentioned that I might tell you all a secret. Well, here it is. I'm taking an online novel writing class at Stanford! Yes, I just squealed. It is giving me a great way to evaluate future novels (we've signed so few, I look forward to expanding our list!) and as this year goes on, maybe I'll tell you a bit more about what I'm working on . . .
