Excitement this week:
- celebrating Michelle McLean's book release of TO TRUST A THIEF
- seeing her beautiful book trailer for the first time
- meeting our fabulous January Mystery Agent Thao Le of Sandra Dijkstra Literary Agency
- and Kristal shared her publisher's Show Us Your Wings contest and giveaway for A Shimmer of Angels book swag!
Excitement this MONTH!
- Prior to all of this, we celebrated 2013 in style with the New Year's Revisions Conference, a totally free, totally online, totally archived conference themed around revision.
- Then Michelle shared her publisher's news: Entangled has partnered with Davis Entertainment, in which Davis "gets an exclusive first look at all the titles coming out of Entangled". Entangled has also partnered with two Big 6 pubs, Macmillan and St. Martin's in which "Macmillan will distribute English language e-books of Entangled’s new publications" and "St. Martin's will launch a new joint venture imprint known as St. Martin’s/Entangled which will bring into print and publish a select number of Entangled’s digital first titles."
2013 is shaping up to be an incredible year, and we aren't even out of January yet!
As much fun and excitement as we've had on the blog out in the open, there's been additional awesomeness going on behind the owlery drapes. Mysterious owlish stuff...
Beginning on Monday, January 28th, we're going to have some big announcements (hint: they include more contests, and that's not even the exciting part!). Note: we won't have a February Mystery Agent contest as we are just catching our breath after NYRC 2013.
We have more Operation Awesome book news coming down the pike, but that's not my news to share, so I'll let you wonder...
*insert fog machine here*
I also have some personal news which I'm sure I'll be blogging more about in the future. It involves the publishing industry, but doesn't involve any of my books.
Riddle, riddle, riddle.
I'd make a terrible Sphinx.
I'd love to hear from you what wonderful, mysterious things are you anticipating in 2013? (ooh, especially tell me about book releases, yours or your favorites)
