Touch has sold!

Posted Apr 28 2011, 8:08 pm in , , , ,

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!).

    Had to get that out of my system. CONGRATULATIONS!! I’m so stoked Kevan chose to query Entangled and that the rest of the team loved the book as much as I do. You’re destined for fantastic things, Jus. I’ve always believed that!

    I’m so excited for you! I’m telling you Entangled is going to be the pub to shake the world. This rocks! I’m so excited about the premise that I called my kidlet in and told her all about it. She’s drooling. Her questions, “How are they going to get together? Are they going to get together? Will he kill her?”

    She didn’t like my shrugs. So now, I’m standing in line for the release date. lol.

  7. Congratulations on your 3 book deal! Savvy Authors and Entangled rocks!
