My debut middle grade novel, The Star Thief, is scheduled for publication by Little, Brown, in Spring 2017!
Deirdre Jones at Little, Brown has acquired debut author Lindsey Becker'sThe Star Thief, a middle grade fantasy adventure in which an orphaned girl is caught in the crossfire of a feud between a master of mythical constellations and the captain of a spectacular flying steamship – and doesn't know whose side to join. Publication is slated for spring 2017; Natalie Lakosil at Bradford Literary Agency negotiated the deal for world rights.
And if that wasn't awesome enough, the deal was finished by my fabulous agent Natalie Lakosil, while she was in labor with her first baby! That's dedication!
I'm now working with my editor, the brilliant Deirdre Jones, on the process of turning a manuscript into a book.
More news to follow, of course. For now, it's back to the very glamorous work of revising, more revising, and then a little revision to cap off all the revising.
Cheers to a happy 2016, and a million thanks to everyone who's helped along the way!
