If you haven’t read my story of how I got my agent, you should go do that first. You can find it here.

I have more exciting news to share! I can officially announce my two book deal with Spencer Hill Contemporary. THE HIT LIST is going to be published in March 2014! People are actually going to read it and I am beyond happy that I’m getting a chance to share it with all of you.

Remember that mention of a small press offer that led to my signing with my awesome agent, Nicole Resciniti? Yeah, this is that offer.

I first spoke with Danielle Ellison at the end of February. I’d entered the twitter pitch party following Pitch Wars. She requested my query and the first 20 pages of THE HIT LIST. Soon after, she upgraded to a full. And then an awesome email landed in my inbox. Danielle wanted to talk with me about my story.

By the time our scheduled chat time rolled around, I had convinced myself that she wanted an R&R and this call would be no big deal. I’d even considered the possible things that she might want changed and how I could change them. She was lovely on the phone and I was a nervous wreck trying not to be awkward. Part way through the conversation, she offered. And honestly, I don’t really remember what happened after that because I was too busy trying not to freak out or scare her away.

Fast forward to after I signed with Nicole.

Another awesome email landed in my inbox, this time from Nicole. Danielle had read another one of my manuscripts and wanted to offer a two book deal. A TWO BOOK DEAL.

Cue freak out.

I still can’t believe people are as much in love with THE HIT LIST as I am. It’s finally starting to feel real now that everything is official, but I feel like I don’t deserve any of this. I’m just so happy my dreams are coming true.

I’m ridiculously excited to get to work with Danielle and the fabulous team over at Spencer Hill Contemporary and I’m so thankful for my wonderful agent, Nicole.

And beyond everything else, I can’t wait to be able to hold my book in my hands and hear what you guys think about it. March 2014 will be epic.
