Exciting News!

Whaling! I know SO MUCH about whaling!

If you follow me on Twitter, you've seen this already, but I had to post something on the blog: my first novel, SALT & STORM, will be published by Little, Brown in September 2014!

I am so so thrilled! Aside from the obvious "yay I have a book deeeeaaaaal!!!" I'm so excited to be a part of the Little, Brown family. I think they have some of the best, most interesting, and well-done YA books out there,* and I couldn't have asked for a better home for my first two books.

Also, a big thank you to my fabulous agent, Sara Crowe. She was nothing short of amazing throughout the entire process, and I feel so lucky to have her in my corner.

I know I've been a little...cagey about the specifics of my writing, since I've always felt like this little blog was first and foremost a blog about general YA rather than me. I'll talk a little more about this in the fall (which, holy crap, is in, like, a month and a half), but I'm planning to share more about my writing and my book soon and hopefully give you guys a behind-the-scenes look at life as a debut author.

In the meantime, I have a fancy-schmancy official website that will post info on SALT & STORM as I get it, so check out more there!:

*My 10 Hidden Gems from the Cybils list counts 3 LB books: How to Save a Life, Perfect Escape, and The Boy Recession; and some of my favorite books are LB: I Hunt Killers, Boy21, The Diviners...)


  1. Congratulations! That is wonderful news. :-)

  2. Congratulations! Can't wait to hear more about the book!

    1. Thanks so much! There's a little blurby thing here: And in the next few weeks I'm sure I'll be posting more!
