Indulge me for a minute. I've been working on a blog post about how agenting is hard. And it is. (So is writing. Publishing is hard, really.) But there are shiny moments in the midst of the difficulty that remind me why I do what I do.
This month, two of my clients revealed their covers. These were my first two sales, my first two cover reveals, which makes them extra special. And while we still have months before publication, the cover reveal is a huge moment, the first opportunity a book really has to burrow into readers' hearts and minds. So I had to take a moment here to just tell you how proud and excited I am to see these books making their way into the world. I hope you love the covers as much as I do, and I hope these books sneak onto your TBR lists!

YOU DON'T KNOW ME BUT I KNOW YOU, by Rebecca Barrow, will be published by HarperTeen on August 29, 2017. In this contemporary young adult novel, a girl receives an unexpected letter from her birth mother as she and her boyfriend struggle to decide what to do about an accidental pregnancy. Meanwhile, she faces a growing distance with her best friend, who's keeping secrets of her own.

Thanks for letting me share a fun bit of news with you--I cannot wait for next summer.
