My Big News: MIRA, Adam, & me

I could hardly stand to keep this from you, darlin's, but I was waiting for all the t's to get crossed and the i's to be dotted. I'm thrilled, excited, overjoyed to announce that I'm going to be writing a standalone novel for Mira.

I could go on and on and on about all the ways this is awesome, but I'll stick to just a couple here: first of all, I get to work with Adam Wilson again. He's a dream of an editor - I don't even want to tell you all the ways because I'm afraid you'd steal him. Second, I get to try something I've been yearning to do for about two decades, which is to write in my own weird special mix of...well, let's just call it yet another Littlefield genre-defying mess. I believe the *technical* term is "upmarket," but I confess I don't really know what that means. Oh well, I'll let you know when I figure it out.

Big thanks to Poelle for making it happen, as always.

Meanwhile, from Publisher's Marketplace:

Oh congrats! I love it when you kick off the genre traces!

upmarket = rich enough to buy a hardback?

You just keep motoring along at very high speeds. Congratulations, yet again! Well deserved, as usual. At this rate I'm simply going to have to assign a key command to automatically send out a congratulations comment or email to you.

Congratulations, Sophie! I met Adam at the 2009 Crested Butte Writers Conference and he was a real sweetie who seems to know his stuff. The best of luck to you both!
