Writer Wednesday: Deal Announcement


I had an exciting start to my week. Not only did I finally get to move back home, but I also got this picture from my amazing agent Sarah Negovetich.
If you're having trouble reading that, it's the deal announcement for Fading Into the Shadows, which will be published by Spencer Hill Press in 2016!

I love my editor at SHP. Trisha just gets me and the way my mind works, so I'm thrilled to work on another book with her. And this book was one that grabbed my attention from the start. It's actually the book that gave me the idea for the Touch of Death series. Yes, I drafted it before Touch of Death. I revised it after I completed the series though.

I can't wait to share more info with you, but for now I'll say it's fantasy and it involves a girl who will do anything to save her best friend after he goes missing. Of course she didn't realize "anything" involved another world of shadows and real life constellations trying to kill her.

Anyone else have good writing news to share this week? Tackle a difficult chapter, finish a revision, get a new book idea? Let's celebrate together.

  2. Good for you.
    I just finished a particularly difficult revision of a new novel after finally deciding which of the two ways it was going to go. It's a weight off my mind. Now for the edits.

    Best of luck!

  4. Congratulations, Kelly! Nothing to report here, except my youngest started high school today, which blows my mind. Four more years until I'm an empty nester. The countdown begins!

  5. Congratulations, Kelly! I don't have anything to celebrate with you, unless it's NOT going back to school with the rest of the teachers. Yeah, I guess I can celebrate that. :)

    1. Yeah, publishing isn't a fast industry, but that's okay. I have plenty of releases scheduled for 2015 in the meantime. :)

  12. Congratulations, Kelly! I'm so happy for you! Fading Into the Shadows sounds like it's going to be such an interesting read. I'm surprised to learn you actually wrote the 1st draft before your Touch of Death Series.
    Nothing new going on for me this week other than catching up on some reading and trying to get back into the groove after having such an incredible vacation. Back to reality... slowly but surely!

    1. None of my books published in the order I wrote them, but I do tend to take time between drafting and revising so the order gets mixed up that way, too.

    1. Thanks! I love when I get an idea that's different from what's out there. I really loved this concept when it came to me and throughout the process of drafting and revising.
