If you've wondered why I'm not posting here much, it's because Facebook won't even show my messages to those who have liked my fanpage, let alone anyone else. It's frustrating. But if you missed it elsewhere, check out this deal announcement: Claudia Gabel at HarperCollins/Katherine Tegen has acquired, in a six-figure deal, a YA science fiction trilogy from Rachel Caine and Ann Aguirre. The Honors series follows a misfit named Zara who feels lost in a highly ordered future world. Publication is projected to begin in winter 2018; Lucienne Diver at the Knight Agency represented Caine and Laura Bradford at Bradford Literary represented Aguirre in the deal for North American rights. I also have more news coming. Stay tuned for more exciting announcements.

It's SO STRANGE that women expect their jobs & livelihoods to be handled with the same professionalism & tone as a male-dominated field.
