good news!

Happy Wednesday! (And boy is it!) I'm still too busy to blog, but Mischief people are not to busy to have awesome news!

First, Natasha Solomons's debut novel was released in the UK (where it is called MR ROSENBLUM'S LIST) by Sceptre on April 1st! The US release date is June 21 (Reagan Arthur books is publishing it under the title MR ROSENBLUM DREAMS IN ENGLISH). I've asked Natasha if she'll do a guest post in June, and she's offered to talk about generating word-of-mouth publicity for novels.

Second, Caroline Starr Rose's middle grade novel-in-verse, MAY B, sold to Nicole Geiger at Tricycle! It's releasing Fall 2011. (I just noticed Caroline is represented by my friend Michelle Humphrey--now I'm doubly excited about this deal!)

Two people to congratulate! Keep the good news comin', folks :)

Congrats on the great news! Michelle Humphrey is my agent also, so I can attest to her awesomeness. Glad to hear she's a friend of yours, Moonie - I'm going to tell her how I changed your life a few weeks back; I'm sure she'll be delighted to hear about our connection.

Congratulations to Natasha and Caroline! I've been following Caroline for quite some time...I'll have to check out Natasha.

Good luck on getting caught up, so you can blog again. :)

Is it just me, or is the US title far more of a "grab" than the UK title? As a British reader, I know I'm now more likely to pick up "Mr Rosenblum's List" because I know its US title sounds interesting... Weird.

Kate Evangelista said...

Congratulations! I wish I had good news to share too. Next time around I'm sure I will.

Charles Gramlich said...

Good to hear some folks are making progress. I've just been spinning my wheels. And not very fast either.

Yay for all the good news! And congrats again to Caroline. May I also just add that Michelle Humphrey: best agent evah.

Caroline Starr Rose said...

Moonie, thanks!! And now that I know you and Michelle are friends, I'm going to be grilling her about your identity...
