I know some of you have been waiting for an update forever, and I've been carefully avoiding answering your questions with any finality. Sorry about that. It was a necessary evil.
But now I can officially announce that a print version of LOSING IT in the U.S. is imminent! I've signed a three book deal with Harper Collins! The deal includes LOSING IT and two companion novels (one for Cade and one for Kelsey).
AND... as if that wasn't cool enough. THE NEW YORK TIMES broke the news of the sale. Yeah. I said New York Times. You can read the article here in which they discuss how LOSING IT is heralding in "New Adult Fiction." Then you can come back and celebrate with me!
I don't have a set release date for you yet, but I can tell you that everyone is working hard to get the book ready for a quick and seamless release. As soon as I have more information that can be shared, I will send it your way!
And lastly, I cannot end this post without a host of thank yous! Many of you have been with me on this from the very beginning. I remember watching the adds on Goodreads and getting SO excited when LOSING IT had 1,000 adds. It has since blown that number out of the water, and it's all thanks to you guys. Amy at the YA Sisterhood and all the bloggers from the blog tour did such a tremendous job sharing the news about my little book. I have no doubt that you all are largely responsible for its success. Heather Self was my self-pub mommy and answered all my multitudes of questions and calmed my freak-outs-- you're the best! I have been blessed to have so many fabulous readers reach out to tell me about their experience of reading the book. Many of those same readers have told their friends, for which I am very thankful! I have just been inundated with love and it is the best feeling EVER. I have the best agent and agency EVER. Suzie Townsend did an amazing job negotiating this deal, and as evidenced by the NYT article, the whole team has put their full support behind LOSING IT. They are really making some amazing things happen. Signing with New Leaf was possibly the best decision I ever made.
I love you all so much! I am just feeling ALL THE FEELINGS.
Now, I need to get back to work on that second book we sold. :D But for all those who have asked about a paperback version of LOSING IT, I can finally say... IT'S COMING!
P.S. OH! OH! I just realized. It's been one month since the book released! Wow. A lot can happen in a month.
