You may have noticed I’ve been a little quiet on the internet front the last few months, and for good reason. On April 2, I gave birth to my first baby!
Introducing Elouise Madrone:
She’s been keeping me very busy, tired and happy. I think we’re close to perfecting a configuration where she sleeps on my lap while I balance my laptop on the arm of my chair and type with one hand. My next book may be written entirely one-handed.
Speaking of books….
Maybe I should give away a few copies soon….
And now, last but not least, I am excited to officially announce that I just signed a contract for a two-book YA series with Katherine Tegen Books (Harper Teen/Harper Collins)! Here’s the announcement from Publishers Weekly:
Author of BEAUTIFUL and CRAZY Amy Reed’s new two-book series, INVINCIBLE, pitched as Go Ask Alice meets The Fault in Our Stars, about a teenage girl who survives a terminal cancer diagnosis, only to get trapped in the deadly spiral of addiction, and the boy who would do anything to save her, to Anica Rissi at Katherine Tegen Books, by Amy Tipton at Signature Literary Agency (world).
Woohoo! So excited to be working with Anica and her team!
Now back to the baby and one-handed writing….
