Good news Friday

Yay! I'm so happy that I can finally share the details of my latest book deal! It's a YA called Demonosity and out of all the books I've written, this is by far my favorite! It's a lot darker than anything I've done before but there is still lots of humor (and lots and lots of seriously lovely guys in it!!!!!!)

Anyway, here is the Publisher's Marketplace announcement!

Amanda Ashby's DEMONOSITY, in which a sixteen year old girl's life is
turned upside down when she has to protect an ancient alchemist's
relic from two demon knight brothers, one of whom is good and one of
them bad: the problem is she has no idea which is which, to Puffin, in
a nice deal, by Jenny Bent at The Bent Agency (World English).

I've also just sold the Indonesian rights to my upcoming book, Fairy Bad Day. This is the first time that any of my books will have been translated! I sure hope that they have a word for evil-killer-invisible-fairy-with-bad-taste-in-leather-wear!

YAY, Amanda! Such great news!

Wendy Toliver said...

Amanda, that is awesome! I can't wait to read it. And cool about the foreign rights too. Yay Amanda!

Alyson Noel said...

Amanda--this is FANTASTIC!!! I am so happy for you that I will drink champagne on your behalf--hope you're having some too!

Amanda Ashby said...

Hey guys - thank you so much!!! I think this is the most excited I've ever been about a sale! And Alyson, don't you worry about that - we've definitely had some bubbles (though I must admit that my husband and I can find the most ridiculous excuses to drink champagne, like 'oh, look the new roses have come out in the garden. We'd better celebrate...')

Sara - thank you - as you well know, this book was a lot better behaved than most!

Stephanie - thank you! I'm still crazy happy!
