Good News Giveaway

One of the things I love best about the writing community is generally how generous and supportive most writers are. We mourn when friends face rejections or low points; we celebrate when they hit new milestones.

Today, on the blog, we want to celebrate some recent milestones and good news from several of our contributors–and we want to invite you to celebrate with us!

To that end, we’re hosting three different giveaways. You can enter one–or all three! The deadline for entries is midnight March 6. (Continental U.S. only, sadly. None of us are rich. Yet.)

What are we celebrating?

Here’s some of our good news:

Kathryn Purdie, Elaine Vickers, and I have all recently sold our debut books: Katie’s BURNING GLASS comes out Winter 2016 from Katherine Tegen Books, Elaine’s LOST AND FOUND comes out 2016 from Harper Children’s, and my BLOOD ROSE REBELLION comes out Fall 2016 from Knopf.

The final book in Helen Boswell’s MYTHOLOGY series, THE ETERNAL comes out soon! Both film and TV rights have been optioned for the series.

Tasha Seegmiller has finished drafting and is deep in revisions on a lovely women’s fiction novel (loosely inspired by Little Women) that you should hope gets picked up quickly because you want to read this.

Jolene Perry turned in a partial manuscript to her editor and bought her tickets fir LDStorymakers.

Erin Shakespear won a VIP pass to the upcoming LDStorymakers conference by having the very best bad book pitches, including such winning titles as 26 CLEVER WAYS TO STASH A BODY, an alphabet book, illustrated by children, *and* OH, THE PLACES YOU WON’T GO, a realistic picture book for children who’ll probably end up living in their parent’s basement.

Also, Erin just  moved into a lovely new house.

  5. My good news is that I am graduating this June with degrees in Psychology sociology and criminal justice! I had a lot of struggles like everyone else and somehow managed to finish school. I have lupus and had two babies as well as traumatic events that forever changed my life.. Today being the 7 year anniversary of one of them. I am finally strong enough to raise awareness about the traumas I endured and am in an amazing place in my life.

    I am lucky I am still young enough that I have so much to look forward to out of life!

    Thanks!!
