…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.
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!
