Welcome Rebecca Ollerton!

I’m excited to introduce my new client, Rebecca Ollerton!

When I saw Bex’s online comics come across my Twitter feed, I reached out to her right away. They were so relatable and I love her art so much. I’m so happy she chose me to help her grow her career. I can’t wait for you all to see her graphic novel!

Isn’t this cute!! Look at us. So happy. 🙂

Funny story. I actually thought I was being trolled when Melissa queried me. Because why would the author of KITCHEN TABLE TAROT, someone I admire and have been following since starting my tarot journey, query me???

Deal Alert: SUMMER SONS by Lee Mandelo Sold to Tordotcom

So excited to announce that we sold Lee Mandelo’s SUMMER SONS, along with an untitled novella, to Tordotcom! Planned release is for the fall of 2021. Be sure to add it to your GoodReads.

Check out the announcement on Tor.com.

“Andrew and Eddie did everything together, best friends bonded more deeply than brothers, until Eddie left Andrew behind to start his graduate program at Vanderbilt. Six month later, only days before Andrew was to join him in Nashville, Eddie dies of an apparent suicide. He leaves Andrew a horrible inheritance: a roommate he doesn’t know, friends he never asked for, and a gruesome phantom with bleeding wrists that mutters of revenge.

As Andrew searches for the truth of Eddie’s death, he uncovers the lies and secrets left behind by the person he trusted most, discovering a family history soaked in blood and death. Whirling between the backstabbing academic world where Eddie spent his days and the circle of hot boys, fast cars, and hard drugs that ruled Eddie’s nights, the walls Andrew has built against the world begin to crumble, letting in the phantom that hungers for him.”
