Friday Four

1. Guess what I saw in Publisher's Marketplace today?!

Author of LOSING FAITH Denise Jaden's untitled novel, exploring the fragile relationship between two teen sisters - one, a gifted photographer, and one, a dancer who struggles with bulimia, to Anica Rissi at Simon Pulse, with Annette Pollert editing, for publication in Summer 2012, by Michelle Humphrey at ICM.

2. Yay! I must admit, though, I'm a bit frustrated at not having a title. This is the book formerly known as APPETITE FOR BEAUTY. It won't quite feel like a real book that's being published until I have something to call it.

3. The brilliant folks at Simon Pulse are, however, working on a cover for this untitled novel. I've seen one mock-up (though I'm not able to show that around yet) and I love the direction they're going with it. I also have a tentative release date in July 2012.

4. I received a hefty set of line edits on the first 130 pages of this book. I was worried about whether I'd have enough mental focus to complete them, but actually it's been nice to sink myself into something else for a while.

I hope you all have a happy weekend. I know Father's Day will be difficult for my family, but hopefully the weather will hold out and we'll do something picnicky together.


  1. Can't wait for the next book. =D It sounds really good, the story. ^^

    Have a blessing and fun weekend! :)

  3. Yes, I saw that on Pdub too! Congrats!

    Enjoy your edits. Glad you're making it :)

  4. Great news! I'll be praying for you on Father's Day. Hugs.

  5. Congrats on the announcement and book cover!

    And my thoughts are with you on this rough holiday. I miss my dad too.

  7. Looks what shows up on the day I don't read PM! Excited for you.
