Woundabout Announcement

That’s right!  I’m so very happy to announce I’ve sold another book.  Woundabout, the middlegrade book I’ve been working on, with my brother illustrating.  What’s it about?  Here’s the official notice with summary of the plot:

Are my brother and I not each wonderfully coiffed in our own individual way?

Anyway, this is super exciting, because of many things, among them being Little Brown, which is an amazing, crazy prestigious publishing house filled with many wonderful people, and also Alvina Ling, who is an AMAZING editor.  Being on her list is an honor.

The book isn’t going to be out for a while, and not just because it needs to be edited and such, but also because the plan is for it to have somewhere in the neighborhood of 100 illustrations, and probably 20-25 of them will be full page.  Ellis has only done a handful of drawings as a sample of what the book would look like, so he has a lot of work to do.  I’m not sure if we’re going to be allowed to share excerpts and sketches while we work on it, but if we are, rest assured they’ll show up here, and on my brother’s webpage, which you should visit anyway to see some of his work.

Anyway, I’m super, SUPER excited about this, and I hope all of you are as well.  If you have any questions, feel free to ask them.
