In today's Children's Bookshelf from Publisher's Weekly:
Sally Morgridge at Holiday House has bought world rights to Everywhere Blue by Joanne Rossmassler Fritz. The debut novel in verse is about a 12-year-old girl with an undiagnosed anxiety disorder who loves music, math, and everything in its place. When her older brother disappears from his college campus, her family starts slipping away from her. Publication is set for summer 2021; Barbara Krasner of Olswanger Literary brokered the deal.
Yes! This is really happening! My writing journey continues. I was thrilled to sign a contract with Holiday House.
Sally Morgridge is a fantastic editor, who is helping me make this into the best novel in verse I can write.
Was planning to do more revising tonight. But I think I'll take a moment or two to celebrate. It is, after all, Mardi Gras!
