The Latest from Jus

Touch has sold!

This is the post that all authors dream about writing.  The one announcing that all their hard work and determination has finally paid off.  So without further fluff, I’m thrilled to announce that TOUCH has been picked up in a three book deal by Entangled Publishing for release in November 2011.

Whew.  I feel SO much better.  I’ve been sitting on that for a few days now.  It’s a miracle my head didn’t implode!

The idea for Touch born as I sat in a very long drive through line at Dunkin Donuts.  The book  was written last May during the Boot Camp event at Savvy Authors.  I was sitting in the chat room with Heather, Katy, Liz and Leslie, when Kale first tumbled down the embankment and landed at Dez’s feet.

Thank you to my CP’s, Heather Howland, Katy Upperman, and Ann Rought, who have not only been supportive, but encouraging in my quest to get Dez and Kale out into the world.  They pushed me when I needed to be pushed and listened when I needed to rant.

And a huge thank you to my awesome agent, Kevan Lyon, who believed in TOUCH (even on the days I didn’t!).
