Yes, I am thrilled to announce that I have sold TWO books to Tor Children's!
P.J. Hoover's SOLSTICE, about a near-future global heating crisis and a Texas teen who uncovers the strange untold ending of the Persephone myth, only to find that she is part of the story -- and that her choices in love, in family, and in friendship will determine the destiny of her world, to Susan Chang at Tor Children's, for publication in Spring 2013, by Laura Rennert and Lara Perkins at Andrea Brown Literary Agency (NA).
P.J. Hoover's TUT, in which a young immortal King Tut, who has been stuck in middle school for over 3,000 years, must defeat an ancient enemy with the help of a dorky kid from school, a mysterious Egyptian princess, and a one-eyed cat, to Susan Chang at Tor Children's, for publication in Winter/Spring 2014, by Laura Rennert and Lara Perkins at Andrea Brown Literary Agency (NA).
I am such a fan of Tor books that it's crazy, and so you guys can't imagine how thrilled I am to announce this! Seriously. Tor! Whoot!
Just look at me smiling as I sign that huge stack of paper :)
Thank you guys for all your support! And yes, of course, I will post details soon! In the meantime, YAY! I am officially a Tor author!
