Career Planning

So, yesterday i had a nice long phone call with my agent (35 minutes.) We were talking about career planning.

Yep, a career. Apparently I have one of those.

Anyway, assuming my revisions are up to snuff, I will soon be moving towards book two. My contract requires  "high-concept teen fiction," so its coming time to start brainstorming! The plan is to provide my editor with a short list of a few of my favorite ideas, and allow her to choose one she is most intrigued by. So, over the next couple weeks, its time to put hands to keyboard and compile a list. And actually summarize those ideas in coherent fashion. Fun.

I can't wait to be able to tell everyone what my "next book is about" as that seems to be the question dujour! Stay tuned!
