I’ve been keeping this news to myself for some time now, but the announcement ran in Publishers Marketplace today, so I can finally spill the beans!
Without further fuss here’s the official announcement: “GOODNIGHT, MANGER, a companion to the forthcoming GOODNIGHT, ARK, a bedtime twist on the classic Christmas manger tale, with Jane Chapman illustrating, to Barbara Herndon at Zonderkidz, by Lara Perkins at Andrea Brown Literary Agency for the author (World).”
I don’t have any more details at this point, except to say that I am very excited! It’s the best writerly Christmas present I could ever have asked for.
Here’s my writerly takeaway from this latest fun news: Keep writing. Keep subbing. Keep honing your craft. Be true to yourself and good things will come. Happy writing all!
