JAY’S GAY AGENDA IS A GO!

I can finally officially announce that I can cross GET MY FIRST NOVEL DEAL off my career to-do list! JAY’S GAY AGENDA is going to be published in the summer of 2021. Here’s the deal announcement:You might remember me mentioning this novel last year while I was working on it in the spring of 2019. I wanted a fun, carefree, romance-filled romp for queer teens as we headed into the politically divisive year of 2020. While this isn’t going to be pubbed this year, there are still so many LGBTQ+ stories coming out in the coming months that I can’t wait to read and will be sharing here. Here’s to a new decade full of all kinds of queer voices!

I am so incredibly thankful to my new editor, Megan Ilnitzki, for seeing Jay and getting his story from the get-go, and for my agent, Brent Taylor, for making this all happen! Ah!

I’ll be sashaying and prancing around my house for the next forever.

Spreading the Love

I am so unbelievably excited to be able to sing this from the rooftops! I get to have a book out about my favorite topic of all time: LOVE! And the amazing Lori Richmond is going to illustrate! Here’s the PW announcement:

PORCUPINE CUPID is all about a plucky porcupine who fancies himself a matchmaker. I cannot wait to see this book come to life! It’s been a long time comin’. We sold this back in December 2015, and we’ve been waiting for just the right illustrator to sign on. I could not be happier that Lori joined the PORCUPINE team. We’ve been critique group partners for years, and I had no idea she was reached out to to potentially illustrate. Lori is super good at keeping a secret!

Can’t wait for a little more love to be in the world in December 2020 when PORCUPINE CUPID hits bookstores!
