Title: Debut Novel Sold to Boyds Mills Press!
Post by: AmandaSue on May 16, 2017, 10:06 PM
Hi everyone! I know I'm not on here much except for hanging around the trench. But when I started writing, the Blueboards are what actually made me feel like I could do it. Everyone here gave me so much wonderful information. I wouldn't be here without it.

So, I'm so incredibly excited to tell you that my debut novel, THE THREE RULES OF EVERYDAY MAGIC, has sold to Boyds Mills Press! You can find the announcement in Publisher's Weekly!

Getting here wasn't easy. And I've rewritten this book so many times. But it was worth it. Keep going! Keep writing! Dreams come true!
