I’m so thrilled to announce a new two-book deal for Lynn Weingarten for a YA thriller called SUICIDE NOTES FROM BEAUTIFUL GIRLS. The book sold at auction to Simon and Schuster in the US and in the UK, also at auction, to Egmont/Electric Monkey (via our wonderful co-agent Nicola Barr at Greene & Heaton). Lynn may hold the record on my client list for fastest offer of representation–if you can believe it, two hours from when she first emailed me about her project (which was based on a proposal, so it was a fast read).
Please join me in congratulating Lynn on twitter, she is an awesome person and a great writer and I’m thrilled to have her on the TBA list: @lynnweingarten
