And A Sale

Time to drag out the endless saga of the Onyx Proposal, but this time for happy news. Claire just bought Shadow Music, one of the books I worked up in the series of about a dozen that I did for the Onyx Proposal. Shadow Music sold to a different Penguin line (Eclipse), with a release date in early 2008, and I’ll be doing it under my own name. If it goes well, we’ll follow up with others. It isn’t the SM Proposal, exactly, though, so the full SM Proposal, minus Shadow Music, will go back in the pile to be reworked and at some later date reused for something else. I don’t throw away worlds.

    Congrats to you Holly! I’m glad there is a book that was purchased out of all the work you did on that proposal! Can’t wait to add another Lisle title to my collection.

    I’m a bit confused, though – is the SM Proposal the project you talked about on your podcast, or the books you were going to write under a pseudonym, or something else entirely?

    Yay! Congratulations!

    Is that the second book you’ve sold out from the Onyx Proposal work (was I See You part of that as well)?

    The more I read about writing, the more amazed I am at how long it takes to get a product at the door. Two years seems like so long.

    But, as I typed that I just remembered that you sell of of proposals, right? So you probably haven’t written Shadow Music yet? Or am I wrong and you’ve already written this one?

    Congratulations Holly! I can’t wait! 🙂
