BIG Middle Grade News!

First of all, I am wicked wicked sorry that I haven't put up the next round of the cover contest yet. It IS happening, I swear.

But first I have TWO very exciting things to tell you!

The first is that I've received the final(ish, oh publishing) cover for ZOMBIE TAG, and I am so psyched to show you guys.


Isn't it AWESOME? I love the excerpt they chose for the back, and I think my favorite part is either the spatula over the barcode or Graham's zombie face on the spine.

The SECOND piece of big news is that I just got the go-ahead for my second MG book! It's right now called MARCO IMPOSSIBLE, and it'll be out early 2013. It's about two best friends, Stephen and Marco, who go on a go-for-broke heist to break into the high school prom and get Marco onstage to steal (hence the heist) the heart of Benji, the British exchange student and bass player of the prom band. (Yes, yes, YES, gay main character, and could I BE any more excited about that? OH I THINK NOT.) If you follow me on twitter, you'll know this as #veryscaryMG; not because it is scary, but because it was scary for me to write. Because I had to plot a freaking heist I mean come on.

The best part of getting good news is when I can tell you guys, so thanks so much for reading and hanging with me. Yay!!

Yay! So exciting!!

And in regards to the cover, I think my favorite part is the end of your bio, where it says this is not only your first MG book, but your first to feature a kitchen utensil, too. Love it. :)

That's so cool! I'm not too familiar with a lot of MG titles. Do many feature gay characters?

Love the cover for Zombie Tag, too.

Paul Anthony--there are actually veeery few MGs with gay MCs, so I'm really psyched about joining the ones who have already done it and hopefully being part of the solution.

Congratulations! That's fantastic news!

Love the cover too. It's reassuring to know the zombie apocalypse can be staved off with kitchen utensils. I'm a whizz with them.

The face on the spine was a stroke of marketing genius. You're in good hands, Hannah.
