First, huge congratulations to Amy Christine Parker, whose debut young adult thriller GATED is up for a YA Books Central Choice Award for Best Teen Horror/Thriller of 2013! To vote or to find new books to love, check out the Choice Awards here! (And if you want to check out GATED for yourself, there’s a free sampler available from Random House Children’s!)
Also, a quick reminder that I’m doing a GoodReads chat today from 1:30-3:30 pm ET. Even if you’re busy at the time, you can leave questions now and come back for the answers later or tune in any time to see what questions were asked and answered. If you’re here on my blog, you probably already know my relevant deets, but just in case, here’s a handy dandy bio:
Lucienne Diver joined The Knight Agency in 2008, after spending fifteen years with Spectrum Literary Agency in New York. Over the course of her dynamic career she has sold over seven hundred titles to every major publisher, and has built a client list of more than forty authors spanning the commercial fiction genres, primarily in the areas of fantasy, science fiction, romance, mystery, and young adult fiction. Her authors have been honored with the RITA, National Readers’ Choice, Golden Heart, Romantic Times and Colorado Book Awards, and have appeared on the New York Times and USA Today bestseller lists. Clients include such bestsellers as Rachel Caine, Chloe Neill, Faith Hunter, Rob Thurman, Susan Krinard, Kalayna Price and many others.
She’s also an author in her own right with her Vamped young adult series for Flux Books (VAMPED, REVAMPED, FANGTASTIC and FANGTABULOUS) and the Latter-Day Olympians urban fantasy series for Samhain (BAD BLOOD, CRAZY IN THE BLOOD and RISE OF THE BLOOD), which Long and Short Reviews calls, “delightful Urban Fantasy, a clever mix of Janet Evanovich and Rick Riordan.” In addition, she’s written short stories and essays that have appeared in the Strip-Mauled and Fangs for the Mammaries anthologies edited by Esther Friesner (Baen Books), in Dear Bully: 70 Authors Tell Their Stories (HarperTeen) and the anthology Kicking It edited by Faith Hunter and Kalayna Price (Roc Books). Further information is available on The Knight Agency website and her author site.
Whew, I’ve been busy!
