So, you know how I mentioned I was holed up in my writing cave for the next few weeks? Well, it's about to get even worse . . . but for very good reasons.
The Publisher's Lunch announcement:
R.L. LaFevers's fourth book in the NATHANIEL FLUDD: BEASTOLOGIST series, set in France, in which Nate, gremlin Greasle, and Aunt Phil close in on adversary Obediah Fludd, news of Nate's parents, and the fate of the last unicorns, again to be illustrated by Kelly Murphy, again to Kate O'Sullivan at Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, by Erin Murphy of Erin Murphy Literary Agency (World).
Yeah, how thrilling is THAT?? (Have I mentioned lately how much I adore my publisher?)
The only problem is, it's due about three weeks after Theo Four is due, and no, that's not hyperbole. Really. Three weeks. The good news is, I do have a fairly substantial outline and a couple of chapters. Even so, I think I am going to need to move the Theo Four finish date up a week, just to be sure.
So yeah, I will totally be doubling down in that writing cave for a bit. May be very scarce here for the next few weeks.
And. AND! That's not all. We just found out that Nathaniel Fludd, Book Two, THE BASILISK'S LAIR has also been selected as a Junior Library Guild Selection. I cannot even begin to tell you how thrilled I am about this.
So, in honor of all this good news, I thought I would give away a couple of ARC's of THE BASILISK'S LAIR. If you're interested in putting your name in the hat, simply leave a comment in this thread. (Be sure I have some way of contacting you if your name is drawn!) I'll leave the contest open for a full week because I know some readers stop by weekly rather than daily.
*Okay, I 'fess up. I stole that headline from my agent. Mostly because it was perfect.(And if you haven't checked out her awesome new website, you should!)
