PM listing! AT LAST!


Many people have asked me in the past few months where my PM listing was, did they miss it, why wasn’t it up, was it going to be up, or something to that effect.

Well, it’s FINALLY HERE.

April 11, 2010

Children’s: Young Adult

Victoria Schwab’s debut novel THE NEAR WITCH, a darkly romantic original fairy tale set on enchanted moors where children are disappearing from their beds at night, and a 16 year old girl must protect a mysterious boy whom the villagers accuse of kidnapping, to Abby Ranger at Disney-Hyperion, for publication in Summer 2011, by FinePrint Literary Management (world English).


A NOTE: I feel like I’m trying to double up on my YAY! and *HUGS* and OTHER FORMS OF DIGITAL ENTHUSIASM because most of the time when people first announce their book deal they show the PM listing with it, but I had to wait on mine for various reasons, and I know it should seem like no surprise/no big deal after eight months of edits…but this is A BIG DEAL for me. It makes it seem REAL. It’s an official declaration.

It’s like, in the south, we have debuts, where you’re introduced to society. This is my debut, my introduction, and I feel like I’ve finally, truly joined the party.

And I’ve NEVER been able to sum up NW in one sentence. I marvel.
