I HAVE NEWS

Oh, everyone, I am so happy today. Last night, this came out in the Publishers Weekly Children's Bookshelf Newsletter:


Hey! I'M S.E. Fine!
I have a book deal!

Awhile back, my fabulous, patient, super-dedicated T-Rex agent, Kathleen Ortiz, came to me with an opportunity to work with one of Joanna Volpe's clients. Everything after that just flowed, and in a matter of weeks, we had this deal. It was really kind of stunning how it all went down. I'll be talking a lot more about all the details of this collaboration in the future, but for right now ... WHOA. Book deal.

(and here's the Publishers Marketplace listing)


For once, I have no more words.*

*Oh, except for these:
I'll have more news next week.

  2. Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah! This is SO EXCITING! I can't believe I read this, I know your surname, I know what you do for a living, and somehow it didn't click. This is brilliant!

    Your book sounds awesome, and from one collaborator to another, co-authoring is brilliant. Can't wait to follow the journey, and get yourself over to the Lucky 13s and join us there!
