So … I have to tell you all my news or I might bust something.
I got an email from my wonderful, amazing, and talented agent Brittany Booker that went something like this:
Look what I found on Publishers’ Marketplace today! You’ve landed a two book deal with Month9books! Congrats, Julie! :))
Julie Reece’s THE ARTISANS, a duology which introduces a seventeen-year-old who must repay her stepfather’s debt by becoming an eccentric heir’s year-long house guest, to Georgia McBride at Month9Books, in a nice deal, for publication in 2015, by Brittany Booker of the Booker Albert Agency (World).Georgia@georgiamcbride.…com.
I have a book deal!! I’m thrilled to be with Month9Books. Everyone has been so nice and have you seen their gorgeous covers? Sigh.
Some vital cerebral popping took place in my poor brain seeing this cool truth in black and white. My dream come true. If you write, have waited for and received news like this, you understand exactly what I’m talking about. If you’re still waiting, take heart, my friend. It will happen.
Both my agent and Ms. McBride were amazing though the whole process. Everything went so well, they answered all of my questions with the patience of Job earning my undying gratitude and respect for not making me feel greener than this guy:
The book is a young adult southern Gothic filled with intense romance, magic, and some serious creep factor. I’m picturing characters who look like the bunch below embarking on a major adventure. What do you think?
Random? Welcome to my world! But hopefully, you will like it here.
I’m so blessed. I’ve always loved telling stories, and I’m having a blast so far. Can’t believe I get the privilege of seeing a story of mine transferred to paper (okay, or ebook). The book is scheduled for June 2015. Can’t wait to share it with you. I hope you will love my characters as much as I do.
