Another EPIC Announcement

I am trembling with excitement about today's announcement. Now, I know that we have been all about LACRIMOSA for the last few weeks (and don't forget about the epic Compass Press BIGGEST FAN contest going on RIGHT NOW), but this announcement is about something else all together...


But first, I need to announce the winner for the LACRIMOSA GIVEAWAY - 


MOLLY FRENZEL!!!


Congrats!


And now, I am pleased to announce the sale of a new book, a special book that I am so excited about, to Compass Press - TRANSCEND, a YA Psychological Thriller unlike anything currently on the shelves.
Check out the PM announcement:
Children's:Young Adult 
Christine Fonseca's TRANSCEND, pitched as Hamlet meets the Black Swan in this Phantom of the Opera thriller, in which a horrible accident leaves a young man abandoned and left for dead, his only link to sanity the love of his fiancee and the support of his best friend-an illusion that might just rip away the last shreds of his humanity and reveal parts of himself he'll wish remained buried, to Compass Press, in a nice deal, for publication in March 2013 (US). 
This is by far the hardest thing I have ever written and I am BEYOND excited. I've talked with Compass Press about the thoughts for the cover, edits, etc, and trust me when I say that EPIC does not begin. In fact, I have serious chills just writing this post.


Here's a little blurb about the story (from Goodreads):
All seventeen-year-old composer Ien Montgomery desires is to find his muse – someone to ease the burdens of his family’s rigid expectations and the recent death of his older brother. When he meets a beautiful violin-prodigy, Kiera McDougal, his music takes on new life. With her, he imagines a future outside of his parents’ control. That is, until a horrible accident tears them apart. 
Sent to die in a sanatorium, Ien’s obsession for Kiera grows unbearable. Tortured by thoughts he can’t escape and the truth of his monstrous disfigurement, he flees, desperate to exact revenge on the people that ruined his life – his parents. But, vengeance is empty. Betrayed by those closest to him, Ien discovers that the price for his happiness may be his sanity. 
Now, to celebrate the news of the sale, I thought I'd give away a DVD of the movie version of the story that inspired TRANSCEND, Phantom of the Opera, as well as a $10 Amazon Gift Certificate. Just fill out this rafflecopter form to win. WOO HOO!!!

a Rafflecopter giveaway Oh yeah - I am excited.

And since at the risk of making you all VERY SICK of the excitement around here, check out the International giveaway for LACRIMOSA on Goodreads, and on I Am A Reader, Not A Writer, plus the ongoing FAN Giveaway, and the book blogger tour stops for today. Oh! And I am hanging out with Eisley Jacobs (who will be here on the blog later this week) too. Check it out.

See, too much good for one week, yes???
