My debut novel NIL sold! *pinches self*
It's still a bit surreal.: )
I've known for a while, and I'm SO glad to finally be able to share this news. (Secrets are HARD. :D) But I love this book, and its characters. And I can't wait for y'all to meet them!:)
Here's the official announcement on Publisher's Marketplace:
"Lynne Matson's NIL, when teens end up on the Island of Nil, through a
"wormhole" in space, they have 365 days to catch a gate back home or
die; a newcomer falls in love with a boy who only has 86 days
left...will Nil let them survive?, to Kate Farrell at Holt Children's, for publication in Winter 2014, by Jennifer Unter at The Unter Agency (world English)."
-Sept. 5, 2012
I'm so grateful to my agent, Jennifer, for making this happen. She is truly made of awesome. :) I can't wait to work with Kate, and to be honest, Henry Holt publishes some of my very favorite authors (like Mary Pearson and Leigh Bardugo) so I'm just a *little* star-struck.
HUGE hugs to my family, friends, and awesome crit partners (who are also friends!:D). I couldn't have done it without y'all. Cupcakes for life are on me. :)
Happy Wednesday y'all!
