Congrats to Tommy Wallach!
From School & Library Journal: “VERDICT A unique and compelling tale. The narrator’s hilariously crass but poignant voice is sure to intrigue even the most reluctant of readers.”
So excited to see Tommy Wallach and Hannah Moskowitz (twice!) on
Chicago Public Libarary’s Best Teen Fiction of 2015 list. They’re in some great company, along with Folio Jr. clients Margo Rabb and Julie Murphy…
WE ALL LOOKED UP drops March 24th. Now you can win a chance to celebrate with author Tommy Wallach at Joe’s Pub in Manhattan on Friday, March 27th. Hobnob with the y.a. literati and see Tommy perform with his band live on stage.
How you can win a free ticket: Between the 24th and noon on the 27th, head on down to your local book store and tweet a picture of yourself with a copy of WE ALL LOOKED UP, and tag it #WeAllSelfie. Best picture wins a ticket and universal admiration and acclaim.
(Just a reminder, Joe’s Pub is 21+, so you gotta be of age to get into *this* end-of-the-world party.)
You can also buy a ticket here. Seating is limited, so click it now!
Debuting this month are Tommy Wallach’s WE ALL LOOKED UP and Hannah Moskowitz’s NOT OTHERWISE SPECIFIED. So proud to see them both on Bustle’s
This week just keeps getting better. So after Monday’s HuffPo list featuring Tommy Wallach and Courtney Alameda, today Barnes & Noble released its 15 Most-Anticipated YA Debuts of 2015. I’m so happy and proud to have three clients on this list: Mr. Wallach (who just earned himself a Junior Library Guild selection), Ms. Alameda, and also Gina Ciocca, whose debut LAST YEAR’S MISTAKE is coming from Simon Pulse in June.
You can see the list, which features other fantastic titles I’m super eager to read, here:
What a way to kick off 2015! Very excited to have *two* titles featured on this Huffington Post list! Congrats to Courtney Alameda (SHUTTER, which drops on February 3rd) and Tommy Wallach (WE ALL LOOKED UP, March 31st).
Cool stuff from some Class of 2015 clients last week:
Rahul Kanakia, whose amazing debut ENTER TITLE HERE is coming from Hyperion in Fall 2015 (think House of Cards meets Gossip Girl. Yeah.) has two new short stories. You can read one right now at the sci-fi and fantasy magazine Clarkesworld: Seeking boarder for rm w/ attached bathroom, must be willing to live with ghosts ($500 / Berkeley)
(And if you aren’t following his blog, Blotter-Paper, you should.)
Then check out Tommy Wallach performing “Madeline“, a song from the upcoming “We All Looked Up” album, to accompany his novel of the same name. Both the book and the album come out on March 31, 2015. Subscribe to his channel to see more!
In other news: it’s fall! Hooray!
ENTER TITLE HERE on Goodreads
From ABA’s announcement:
“For the fifth consecutive season, two panels of booksellers from every region of the country have chosen 10 debut adult titles and 10 children’s titles for the Indies Introduce Debut Authors and New Voices promotion. Featured Winter/Spring titles include fiction and nonfiction, middle grade and YA, publishing between January and June 2015.
These standout debuts will take readers from the familiar to the exotic, from New York to Paris, from Montana to Pakistan, and to Swedish Lapland in the 1700s. There’s a mystery, an unforgettable boy and dog, unusual chickens, and a first book by an independent bookseller from Mississippi.”
I’m so excited to see WALU (as we call it ’round here) included on this list, especially on the heels of our big film announcement last week. You can add WE ALL LOOKED UP on Goodreads or pre-order it on Barnes & Noble, Amazon, or Indiebound. Which you should do.
