Carrie Lofty's first sale announcement
Finally got around to reading my RWR and saw in the First Sales column that fellow author Carrie Lofty's sale was announced. But the format has changed. Now they just list the names.
I understand about space requirements, etc., but an author's first sale is a very special time. You want to shout it from the rooftops, and tell details. Just listing a name doesn't say anything to me about how long this writer has worked to achieve this special goal. Or what publisher she sold to, or even the name of her book!
So here's Carrie's announcement the way it should have read:
Carrie Lofty announces the sale of her first book, as part of a two-book contract, to Kensington Publishing. What a Scoundrel Wants will be a December 2008 Zebra Debut release in which Will Scarlet, Robin Hood’s estranged nephew, rescues an alchemist who can clear him of murder, but she’s blind, obsessed with fire, and sister to the woman he helped abduct. What a Scoundrel Wants was the second full-length manuscript she completed before selling.
Here's a link to buy the book on Amazon.
Hope everyone had a great Fourth of July. We had some friends over, fireworks, hot tub party. Now it's back to work and the book due in three weeks.
