Congratulations to Jessa Russo! The runner-up in the Wilde's Fire Editor Judged Contest has just signed a publishing contract with Curiosity Quills! Her novel, EVER, a ghostly YA paranormal romance has found it's home.
From Jessa's blog:
"Krystal Wade is now my AMAZING editor, and EVER will soon be published (AAAH!) by Curiosity Quills. I am beyond thrilled, and beyond blessed, and beyond even finding the appropriate words to describe how incredible this feels! I can't wait to share EVER with all of you soon!"
Jessa, I'm so happy to have you as my newest publishing house sister! I may also have some super top secret information about ANOTHER contestant who will be announcing signing with Curiosity Quills on Monday...but my lips are sealed until then.
I also wanted to share a nice email I got today from author Amy Black.
Just written my first book 'Eternal Unfolding Of The Luminous Mind') and -
prompted by your feature on literary agent Mark Falkin - sent it off to him.
Well, he loved it right off the bat (even though his website says no
erotica!) - it is, and it isn't, but readers will have different reaction.
Then, my husband Jack, who is a comic science fiction fan, and all things
Douglas Adams (Hitchhikers Guide To The Galaxy), wrote a 28,000 word comic
novel - and planning a second - and put it on Amazon Kindle.
We have not written anything before, but your blog started a whole
avalanche of creativity in the Black household!
I'm overflowing with warm and fuzzy feelings today! Congratulations to Amy & Jack!
While I have your attention (hopefully), I wanted to announce something unrelated. Curiosity Quills has three books discounted to 99 cents for a limited time to promote the author's upcoming releases. Feel like doing some shopping?
