BANISHED to be published!

I'm pretty much overjoyed to report that my Young Adult series has found a home. Delacorte Books will publish BANISHED and its sequel in fall '10 and '11. Thank you, thank you to Barbara for once again navigating the deal brilliantly, and to editor Claudia Gabel for seeing some promise in my work.

I have to say it was a particular thrill to browse through the books published by Delacorte Books For Young Readers - and see so many of my kids' favorites there.

Here's the announcement from Publishers Marketplace:
Children's: Young Adult
Sophie Littlefield's BANISHED, in which an ostracized girl from a small town discovers she's heir to an ancient legacy and the powers that come with it, to Claudia Gabel at Delacorte, in a two-book deal, by Barbara Poelle at Irene Goodman Agency.

Wow! A second book in a totally different genre! You are a living object lesson of the advice to keep moving forward on your writing after you finish a manuscript.

There's definitely no stopping you now! Congratulations Sophie, it is great to see all that hard work pay off!
