Yesssss! I am officially swinging from the rafters! As of today I can announce to the world that my novel, THE SILO was picked up at auction as part of a two book deal by the fabulous Suzy Capozzi at Random House!!!! I don't think I've come down from cloud nine since I heard the news. I've just been hanging around up there for the past week waiting until I could tell all of you! I am so excited, nervous, elated, hyper over this that I find myself at a loss for words--something that almost never happens, just ask my husband! Below is the official announcement that went out today in Publisher's Weekly:
Parker Lands at RH Children’s for Debut YA
Amy Christine Parker closed a two-book deal with Suzy Capozzi at Random House Children’s Books for her debut effort, The Silo. Capozzi bought world rights, for six figures at auction, from Lucienne Diver at the Knight Agency. The YA book, which is scheduled for fall 2013, follows a teenage girl named Lyla who has been living in a religious cult after the disappearance of her sister. While her parents are hopelessly under the sway of the group’s leader, Pioneer, Lyla is drawn into a dangerous situation when she begins to question Pioneer’s prophecy about the impending apocalypse.
