Back in December of 2010 I went to the Big Sur Children's Writing Workshop hosted by the Andrea Brown Literary Agency. During the weekend I worked with two different critique groups, made up of five writers and one agent each. I got a lot out of both of my groups, but there was really something special about my first group. Every single one of us had something awesome, and we were all so excited about all of the pages we were sharing with each other. We bonded in those few days, and I was in awe of all of the talent gathered around our little table.
One of my favorites in that first group was a YA time travel romance. I was HOOKED after reading the first chapter in critique and I wanted more, more, more! Well, I am thrilled to say that since our Big Sur workshop, that YA time travel romance sold, it's coming out in October, and, as of yesterday, it has an absolutely gorgeous cover that I am so excited to share with you all. (You know, just in case you haven't seen it yet.)
Anna and Bennett were never supposed to meet: she lives in 1995 Chicago and he lives in 2012 San Francisco. But Bennett’s unique ability to travel through time and space brings him into Anna’s life, and with him, a new world of adventure and possibility. As their relationship deepens, they face the reality that time might knock Bennett back where he belongs, even as a devastating crisis throws everything they believe into question. Against a ticking clock, Anna and Bennett are forced to ask themselves how far they can push the bounds of fate—and what consequences they can bear in order to stay together.
