Sarah Fine's SANCTUM, the first book in the GUARDS OF THE SHADOWLANDS series, featuring a seventeen-year-old girl who has one chance to save her best friend's soul from hell where, in the process, she falls for the indentured Guard who is sent to make sure she doesn't succeed, to Courtney Miller at Amazon Publishing, in a pre-empt, in a three-book deal, for publication in Fall 2012, by Kathleen Ortiz at Nancy Coffey Literary & Media Representation.
SANCTUM is the manuscript that got me agented. It's the story Kathleen fell in love with, the one she's worked tirelessly with me to improve and send out into the world. I've been sitting on the news of this deal for awhile, which is funny because it went down SO fast. Like, a week after we subbed it to Courtney Miller, she called with an offer. Between Kathleen and Courtney, I could not be more fortunate--both are fierce champions of Lela (my MC) and her journey.
I am so so happy I get to tell this story.
