  • Mood:

best agent ever :)

Harlequin has launched a new teen line which I promptly got all jealous that I wasn’t writing for, and equally promptly came up with a Walker Papers spin-off series I /could/ write for it.

So I emailed Jenn, who is under strict orders to not let me over-commit, and said, “This is the part where you tell me I really, really *really* don’t need to put together a pitch for a YA trilogy.”

She wrote back and said, “Actually, this is the part where I tell you that sounds like so much fun, but then dutifully remind you of your current contract commitments and your resolution to slow down to a “normal” pace,” and very helpfully listed my current commitments and suggested I write up any future projects, “to see if this is a realistic pursuit. You’ll have to convince me that’s the case before I’ll make any such submission. *g*”

I really do have the best agent ever. :)

Current deliveries:
10/31/2009 - Wayfinder
11/30/2009 - Janx short story
5/1/2010 - Walker #6

Walker #5 (pending)

Future, pretty likely:
Walker Papers 7-9 (deadlines every May 1 for 2011-13)
Inheritors’ Cycle 3-5 (deadlines late in the year. Call it December 1, for 2010-12)

Future, hopeful:
Chance graphic novel #2
“Mia” graphic novel–manga story about a girl and her dragon

I clearly need a second me.
