Holy hell…

…I’ve sold a book!

Finally, finally, finally! 

Kissing Max Holden is going to be published by Swoon Reads under Feiwel and Friends, an imprint of Macmillan! 

Seriously, guys — I wish I could adequately describe how over the moon I am. My characters, Jillian and Max, will live on real paper, beneath a beautiful cover. I get to work with Lauren Scobell, Holly West, and the rest of the Swoon Reads team. Kissing Max Holden, the manuscript I’ve poured my heart into over the last six (yes — six) years, is going to be an actual book.

Totally surreal!

I’m so grateful to everyone who has supported me and my story. The ratings and comments you left over at Swoon Reads played an enormous part in getting Kissing Max Holden noticed, and I can’t thank you enough. I wish I could bake enough cupcakes and cookies and brownies to share with you all!

Be sure to check out the official announcement at Swoon Reads!

    CONGRATULATIONS, Katy!!! Even though I read and rated the Swoon Reads submission version, I’m excited to go to the bookstore and buy a real-life hard copy when KMH is released! Can’t wait to read more from you 🙂

      Yay! Thank you so much, Samantha! I can tell you, we’ve got some edits in mind for MAX, so I think you’ll be surprised if you reread. I’m so grateful for your support! ❤

    I am so happy for you Katy!!!! I’ve been checking the Swoon Says blog every day now waiting for the the next list, and when I saw Kissing Max Holden I stopped and shrieked, earning me quite a few stares all around. Totally worth it though- this news made my day! You definitely deserved this, and I had been hoping to see this book published. Wishes do come true- for you especially! Congratulations!!!
