I CAN! I CAN!

Some of you may have seen this over the weekend, as it ran early in Publisher's Weekly, but I wanted to wait until I had the Publisher's Marketplace announcement to go with it before I put it on the blog:


July 22, 2011



Children's:
Young Adult

Josin L. McQuein's debut ARCLIGHT, a science fiction/dystiopian thriller, where a parasitic race is driving humanity to the point of extinction, and no one who leaves the last safe enclave ever returns until one teenage girl, a stranger, stumbles out of the Dark, to Martha Mihalick at Greenwillow, in a two-book deal, in a major deal, by Suzie Townsend at FinePrint Literary Management (NA).

And now... HAPPY DANCE!

THIS IS SO AWESOME.

Kayeleen Hamblin said...

2 book major deal? That's amazing! Congrats!

Katherine said...

Congrats!

Miranda White said...

Wow, that's so amazing! Congrats! :)

Nancy Thompson said...

Wonderful? Yes! Fantastic? Certainly! But amazing? No, not really. Because I think anyone who's been following you knows you had it in you & that it was coming. Amazing implies we were shocked, surprised that it was snatched up. Having read just small snippets of your work, I'm not surprised at all.

Congrats!

Lindsey said...

Hey Josin,

I found your blog through Query Shark, and just wanted to say congrats on the book deal! Your book with Greenwillow sounds great, I'll definitely be looking for it when it comes out. It doesn't sound like the book form Query Shark, so hopefully we'll see that one too, eventually.

Best of luck!

Scott

Bethany said...

Congratulations, Josin! Best wishes on the deal and your writing future :-)

Leah said...

In for a slightly belated, but still fully enthusiastic CONGRATULATIONS!

Ishta Mercurio said...

YEAH! Congratulations, madam! AWESOME news! And yes, the "major" part pretty much makes it, doesn't it?

Happy dancing for you!

Nicola Marsh said...

Kristan said...

Claire Dawn said...

Congrats Josin!

Stephsco said...

This is so cool! Congratulations. I want to read your book :)

CarissaAnanko said...

Wow! Holy Cats Eris!

I think I said a long time ago that your stories should be bound and on bookshelves - but this, this is abso*** amazing. MAJOR book deal. Btw., I can't think of anyone who'd deserve it more.

I'd put a million dancing bananas over here, but don't think this format would support it, so again, a simple Congratulations will have to suffice...

Kasey Mackenzie said...

Woo hoo! Congratulations! I was catching up on Query Shark recently and ended up wandering over to your blog last week and am totally not surprised to see this announcement. Fantastic! =)

Lyn Miller-Lachmann said...

Congratulations! I lurk on a lot of blogs where you contribute, and your hard work and patience are an inspiration.

Amanda Plavich said...

Oh, I'm sooo happy for you! Congrats!!!

Perri said...

Bryan Russell said...
