THE ROLLER COASTER CLICHE
To be perfectly honest, this past year has been so hard. I've had a lot of wonderful things happen - success with writing, the opportunity to spend time with my youngest sisters - along with a collection of truly awful things - some major family illnesses and drama. It's been a roller coaster.
But today, I got the okay to share a piece of news I've been dying to talk about: HarperCollins's Greenwillow Books has purchased my novel, Salvage. Which means it's actually, really, truly going to be published! Here's the write-up in Publisher's Weekly. . .
Duncan’s ‘Salvage’ Goes to Greenwillow
This is - no exaggeration - my dream come true. Greenwillow is an amazing imprint, and I'm really excited to get the chance to work with Virginia Duncan (again, no relation), whose work I truly admire. (She was behind one of the smartest, most action-packed books I read all year, Black Hole Sun, by David MacInnis Gill.) My agent, Kate Schafer Testerman, really went to bat for me and worked out an amazing deal. Aside from marrying Jeremy, this is the best thing that's ever happened to me. So, for today, I'm going to put aside the hard things and the drama, and just appreciate the ride.
