Get Ready, World

You see that face in the photo below? That's Melanie Conklin, 
a face you'll see a lot in the future (and on this blog). Because she's a great friend, 
an incredible critique partner and an insanely talented writer.


she just landed this amazing two-book deal with Stacey Barney at Putnam!

As you can see from the summary, COUNTING THYME is full of heart. 
SO full of heart. You guys are going to love this book and Thyme. 

Congratulations to Melanie, her agent Peter Knapp, and Stacey Barney! 

You can find Melanie on
