I can't believe it's been almost three months since my last post, but that doesn't mean there hasn't been any news! Here are some updates on what's been going on with Fox Literary and with my fabulous clients:

Stargazer by Claudia Gray comes out on March 24th! The book was mentioned in an article in yesterday's USA Today, and Claudia is once again holding some terrific contests over on her blog ([livejournal.com profile] claudiagray) every week leading up to the release date. Warning: the USA Today article contains major spoilers for Evernight, but if you haven't yet read the first book in the series, it's just been published in paperback so now is the perfect time to catch up.

Rosemary and Rue by Seanan McGuire is available for pre-order on Amazon! Seanan also has a story in the new anthology Ravens in the Library, a limited edition collection dedicated to defraying medical costs for musician S.J. Tucker. Some of the other participating authors include Neil Gaiman, Laurell K. Hamilton, Holly Black, Charles de Lint, Carrie Vaughn, Midori Snyder, Catherynne M. Valente, Storm Constantine, Terri Windling, and Francesca Lia Block. Quantities are limited, so if this sounds like a book you might want to buy, you should order a copy as soon as you can.

My first auction at Fox Literary! It was also the first sale for author Catherine Knutsson, whose debut novel The Shadows Cast By Stars will be published by Simon & Schuster's Athenuem imprint. It's a dark, literary post-apocalyptic fantasy about myth, spirituality, and one girl's journey to healing herself and the world around her; Catherine is a musician and poet, and her voice reminds me a little of Ursula LeGuin and Elizabeth Knox.

Speaking of poetry, I discovered this fun blog, My Poem Rocks, when they published a poem by Gwynne Garfinkle. I always enjoy Gwynne's poetry--more of which can be found here--but I especially liked this one: The Thrill of It All evokes memories of what being a music fan was like when she was growing up, that devotion and sense of discovery, and the world before we had MySpace and a thousand Internet channels and could get video on our cell phones 24/7.

Hannah Harrington's first novel Saving June sold last week to Harlequin's new YA imprint, Harlequin Teen, in a two book deal. Harlequin Teen launches later this year, and editor Natashya Wilson previously worked on Harlequin's canceled Bombshell line as well as acquiring for the current paranormal Nocturne imprint. Needless to say, Hannah and I are both thrilled to be working with her on this latest exciting venture.

On the personal side, Nadia Lee has just gotten engaged--congratulations, Nadia!

Also, I want to wish a warm welcome to new Fox Literary client Elizabeth Loupas, the first author I've signed in 2009. I can't wait to start submitting her book.

Finally, check out the beautiful cover art for Alcestis by Katharine Beutner. This was one of those happy cases where every single person who saw the cover loved it straight away, which doesn't always happen (but is very nice when it does!). It reminds me what fantastic luck my clients have had with their covers in general, and I hope to be able to have some more examples to show soon.

I have been busy hibernating (winter can be over now, thanks!) and of course working (and, as always, catching up on slush... the backlog seems to be shrinking by an infinitesimal amount, but I keep chipping away at it). I also plan to post some minor changes to my submission guidelines soon, so watch this space!

What's new with all of you?
