In case that’s hard to read:
Leah Raeder’s UNTEACHABLE, a gritty romance about a fiery eighteen year-old high school student’s passionate relationship with the one man who is supremely off limits, to Sarah Cantin at Atria, in a two book deal, by Jane Dystel at Dystel & Goderich Literary Management.
There it is. All shiny and true. Atria bought Unteachable and my untitled NA romance WIP.
Things I know:
- Unteachable will be republished under the Atria imprint in the very near future.
- There will be a cover change. GOODBYE, RAINBOWGIRLFACE.
- NACR2 should follow later this year.
That’s it. More news to come as soon as I get it!
Major gooey thank-yous to my badass agent Jane Dystel and my insanely cool new editor Sarah Cantin at Atria. Mad love to Aestas, Jenny & Gitte, Natasha, and every awesome romance book blogger who reviewed me. Big ups to the YA book bloggers, too: Emily May, Wendy Darling, Faye, Steph, Dahlia, and too many to list.
Most importantly, thank you to every single one of you who picked up Unteachable, read it, reviewed it, talked about it, and made this happen. Reading a self-pub book is still a dice toss, especially when the cover looks like someone puked up a string of partially-digested Christmas lights. (There’s that “lyrical prose” I’m known for.) You guys took a risk on me, and you made my dream of being traditionally published come true…long after I thought it was a lost cause. In return, I promise to fill pages and pages with the most poetic smut I’m capable of producing.
I love you guys.
And now, back to writing.
