Children's: Young Adult
Kimberley Griffiths Little's GODDESS, pitched as "the YA Red Tent", to Karen Chaplin at Harper Children's, in a significant deal, in a pre-empt, in a three-book deal, for publication in beginning in 2013, by Tracey Adams at Adams Literary (US).
Most stunning of all is that I made Thursday's Publisher's Lunch first place announcement!
Been walking around giddy and dancing with a great big grin on my face! I've been 20 years getting to this point with my craft and storytelling. Writing my heart out. Getting hundreds of rejections. A long journey, but I feel like, in so many ways, I'm just beginning, I'm still learning so much . . . and the best part is yet to come. But right now - at last - I'm very excited to share Jayden's story with all my friends and family and readers in 2013!!
The story takes place in a fascinating time period that I love and it's a very sexy romance. Girl Power. Sisterhood. Belly dancing. Camels. Tribal Raids. Sword-fighting. Mesopotamia at the time of Abraham.
