One of my favorite online pals just had her book deal announced over at Publishers Weekly. Here's how it went down:
Catherine Onder at Disney has acquired debut author R.C. Lewis's Stitching Snow, a sci-fi YA thriller due out in summer 2014. In the book, a royal teen runaway is scraping together a living in a mining settlement on the far side of the universe, until she is discovered and "rescued" against her will. Jennifer Laughran at Andrea Brown Literary Agency brokered the two-book, six-figure pre-empt.
Y'all. It's Snow White IN SPACE. Um...hell yes! I've read a few pages of this, and they kick ass. Literally. It's awesome. Look forward to a LARGE career out of this author.
Be sure to stop by her blog and read all about it!
