So, some of you may have seen this little news item by Publisher’s Weekly yesterday:
Pocket Books has signed a co-publishing agreement with Juno Books through which Juno will release one title per month under its own imprint. Founded in June 2006, Juno has developed a niche in contemporary fantasy novels and its authors include Carole Nelson Douglas, Stacia Kane and Sylvia Kelso. The first title to appear under the new deal is Amazon Ink set for a June release. Juno Books editor Paula Guran will oversee the line along with Pocket senior editor Jennifer Heddle.
You’re probably going, “Yeah. So?” Well, here’s the thing: Juno has offered me a contract on an urban fantasy series.
Hello. Is this thing on?
Yes, I have sold an urban fantasy series to Juno/Pocket! The first book is called SHADOWBLADE, and will be released in February 2010. Juno’s books are currently shelved in scifi/fantasy, so it looks like I’m changing neighborhoods too!
Cue the Jefferson’s theme song!
