I am SO HAPPY I can finally tell people. I've known about this since Thanksgiving, but we decided to hold off and announce today.


My agent SOLD my manuscript (in what I guess is a 'nice' deal) to Strange Chemistry Books!!!


A CURSE OF ASH AND IRON, my steampunk/historical fantasy/fairy-tale retelling (the manuscript formerly known as SMOKE & MIRRORS) will be out in JULY 2014!!!


SCB, if you haven't heard of them, is a smaller publisher based in the UK, but with distribution in UK, Australia, and N. America. In the US, they are distributed by Random House. So MAYBE on bookstore shelves!!  It will be out in ebook, print, AND audio. They are the YA imprint of Angry Robot books. 

I cannot wait!!! I can be a PAL author now!!!
