Biggest Deal of My Career: a 7-Figure Kagawa

Written By: laurie - Jan• 28•13

I am so excited this morning. I helped propel New York Times and USA Today bestselling YA novelist Julie Kagawa to a million dollar deal for her next series with teen book imprint: Harlequin Teen. It’s my first seven-figure deal. Julie’s too. Together we worked hard to make this happen. And now we can bask in the glow of all that success. For today at least. Then it’s back to the hard work of writing all those words (Julie) and managing her career (me). Thanks to all the wonderful people at Harlequin who continue to see the brilliance in Julie’s writing. And if you want more details, it’s all over the interwebz. Check it out!
