Sorry to go silent last week. It was hugely busy for a number of reasons, some of which I will go into later in the week. But for now, the most exciting reason...

From Publisher's Marketplace:

R.L. LaFevers's next sequel to THEODOSIA AND THE SERPENTS OF CHAOS and THEODOSIA AND THE STAFF OF OSIRIS, set at the Museum of Legends and Antiquities, in which Theo must convince her parents to take her back to Egypt so she can beat two competing evil societies in the race to find a cache of hidden magical artifacts, to Kate O'Sullivan at Houghton Mifflin, by Erin Murphy of Erin Murphy Literary Agency.

We're still tweaking the title. My current choices are Theodosia and the Emerald Tablet or Theodosia and the Book of Thoth. The latter keeps the whole Egyptian flavor/theme going. However, that might not necessarily be a good thing as they may all begin to sound alike. Luckily, I don't have to decide today.

Another reason for my distraction was that Number Two Son came home this weekend. It feels like all I did was cook. And stare (fondly, if somewhat annoyingly) at him. He was a very good sport about it. Well, he should be. I fed him well. It was a fair exchange.

And that's all I have to say, but I say it wholeheartedly.

I love good news.

sweet! i *heart* theodosia :)

also here's a related question for you--will there ever be an audio of theodosia?

thanks, and congrats!

Erica, that is a great question! I will have to check on that and see if there's been any interest. I'm not sure what motivates an audio version of a kid's book--sales numbers, random interest on the part of the audio book company, etc.

Must investigate further!
