Dutch, baby!


We just received an official offer from Van Holkema & Warendorf for the Dutch publication of The Tilting House. It's scheduled to come out in May of 2015.

The house that is tilting is already out in the U.S. via Random House. It's out in Germany via Thienemann. And soon it will be out in the Netherlands as well.

Thanks to my agent, the esteemed Abigail Samoun. And big, big thanks to my foreign rights agent, the also-esteemed Erzsi Deak.

Seth - Signed and sealed. Not quite delivered.

This week, I signed a contract for my young adult murder mystery, thanks to my agent, the esteemed Abigail Samoun. The publisher is Poisoned Pencil, which is the young-adult imprint of Poisoned Pen Press. I'll be only the 10th author of this imprint, which is pretty exciting, and I'm thrilled to round out their first ten writers.

These guys are the real deal when it comes to mysteries. Poisoned Pen Press is one of the largest publishers of hardcover mysteries in the world.

Writing and publishing is still a struggle for me. But I love the struggle, and these bright spots of goodness keep me going.

So cheers, Universe. Here's to ya.
