Book news!!

Posted on

Yesterday there was a deal announcement in Publisher’s Marketplace about…me! I sold what I lovingly refer to as “my Jane Austen book” to Swoon Romance. And you guys, I’m so excited about this. I’m such a Jane Austen fangirl and to know that there are others out there like me that I can share my fangirliness with is AWESOME! You will be seeing FINDING MR. DARCY: HIGH SCHOOL EDITION in the Summer of 2014!

BEHIND-THE-SCENES

I wrote my Jane Austen book after I completed and edited BLOOD HEX maybe a half dozen times. (We all know that I probably edited BLOOD HEX at least a dozen more times, but I digress.) So, my Jane Austen book is in actuality the second book I ever wrote and completed. Completed is an important word because I probably have six unfinished novels sitting on my laptop hard drive right now. But let’s gloss over that one, shall we?

I remember thinking that my idea for the story was so good! Golden, even! It was a story I would love to read and I had fun writing it. Basically, it’s about this die hard Jane Austen fan, Eliza, who turns to Austen’s novels to give her relationship advice. As you can imagine, some of this advice is outdated and mostly ends up screwing everything up for Eliza. FINDING MR. DARCY is a humorous love story and I can’t wait to get started on edits, see the cover Swoon Romance comes up with (!!!!), and then finally share it with everyone.

I’ve heard nothing but positive things so far about my concept. It seems there are a lot of Mr. Darcy fans just like me!! So, in honor of my book deal, here’s some Colin Firth eye candy for you:

In case anyone missed it yesterday, I HAVE NEWS! Actually, I think my editor (Yes, my editor!) announced it best, so here it is:

I am SO THRILLED to announce I’ve just signed @erinbutler’s sexy contemporary New Adult book, HOW WE LIVED. Watch for it this summer!

— Heather Howland (@HeatherHowland) April 10, 2013

Yes, Heather Howland. Heather Howland of Entangled Publishing. I feel like fangirling all over the place! I’ve talked to her on the phone, over e-mail, and now Twitter, and every time I’m thinking, “She must think I’m somebody else. How is this happening?” I hesitated even replying to her tweet above because it all just seemed so surreal! However, I am happy to report that I went to bed last night, woke up, and the signed contract is still there. So, yep, it’s real! 🙂

My book, How We Lived, will be published by Entangled Publishing on their Embrace line sometime this summer!

“Whoa. Wait. My book is out. That’s craziness.”

“It’s cool. I’m good. Who wrote a book? This guy.”

chill

Then my husband’s all like, “Chill out.”

I'm fine

“Whatever. I’m fine.”

Rinse, wash, repeat, ALL DAY YESTERDAY. All 16 hours I was awake. I might sleep for days…

This is every writer’s dream. He or she who spends time by themselves making up stories, detaching themselves from their family for a period of time, doing something that they love…to know that they’ll see their work all the way through…it’s just amazing. I’m happy to announce that my debut novel, Blood Hex, will be published by Evernight Teen.

Release date is currently set for April 2013. In April, I will see my words, my story, in a book. And other people will get to read that book! It’s overwhelming!
