Announcing SWEET NOTHINGS

I have been keeping a secret...

*tip-toes, looks furtive*

Not about the portal to other worlds in my basement. Everyone knows about that. But a better secret... books!

I sold two new books!!!

Excuse me while I add a few more exclamation points to that.

TWO NEW BOOKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Here's the announcement in Publishers Marketplace:

Children's: Young Adult
Sarah Beth Durst's SWEET NOTHINGS, about a teen in the paranormal witness protection program, who, haunted by dreams of carnival tents and tarot cards, must remember her past and why she has strange abilities before a magic-wielding serial killer hunts her down, to Emily Easton at Walker Children's, in a very nice deal, in a two-book deal, by Andrea Somberg at Harvey Klinger (world).

SWEET NOTHINGS will be published in fall 2013, followed by a second TBD book in fall 2014. (Both of these follow VESSEL, of course, which comes out in fall 2012.) I am, as you might imagine, over-the-moon excited about this, and I hope you'll join me in performing the traditional Snoopy dance of joy!!!

SQUEE! Talk about a high concept where the impossible is made possible! (I'm taking a screenwriting course and online writing workshop; we talked all about high concept.)

Double squee for it being a carnival! YES!
