Good news Friday

Hooray, I'm so happy about my latest book deal!!!!! I've been playing with this idea for ages but it took a few goes to get right and then my editor suggested we try and turn it into a series, which as you can imagine, I'm more than delighted about! Anyway, here is the publisher's marketplace announcement:

Amanda Ashby's untitled middle-grade series about a girl who accidentally gets turned into a djinn (genie) the day before starting sixth grade and has to learn to deal with her new powers without her mom finding out, to Karen Chaplin at Puffin, in a three-book deal, by Jenny Bent at The Bent Agency (world English).

The three books will be coming out between 2011 and 2012 and I also have another young adult book coming out in 2011 so it looks like I'm going to be a busy writer!!!!
