Friday 5

1) First off, HUUUUUUUUGE congrats to client Lee Bross, whose debut novel (she's writing under Lanie Bross) sold in a pre-empt to Delacorte! Head on over to the party at YA HIGHWAY to congratulate her.

Here's the deal announcement:
Debut author Lanie Bross's FATES, the story of an Executor sent to earth to bring about human destinies, who finds herself unaccountably experiencing human emotions, leading to an epic romance set across multiple worlds, to Wendy Loggia at Delacorte, in a significant deal, in a pre-empt, in a two-book deal, by Stephen Barbara at Foundry Literary + Media, on behalf of Paper Lantern Lit.

And to make sure that *MY* role in this is clear, I represent Lee. I negotiated the deal/terms between her and Paper Lantern Lit, a book development company. Stephen represents Paper Lantern, and he brokered the deal between PLL and Delacorte.

2) I wrote this on my hand this morning:

I got a story idea while driving that revolves around a clock and OMG i am so excited!!

3) I turn in DANGEROUS BOY on Thursday. And then I am... deadline free. For the first time since... 2009. Um, yeah. I dont know what I'll do with myself!

4).... except write some option books! Which is why #2 is exciting. I am so used to writing for a bit and then switching gears into agenting for the rest of the day that I am excited to continue the grind with some new books.

5) I signed a new client this week! Head on over and say hello to Joy.
