Erin E. Moulton has been with EMLA since October 2009, at which time her debut middle-grade novel sold to Jill Santopolo at Philomel in just two weeks! That book, now titled Flutter, is due out in summer 2010.—And now, there’s even more good news: This week, Erin accepted an offer for a second stand-alone middle-grade novel: Lanternlight Dreamers, again from Jill Santopolo at Philomel/Penguin.
Lanternlight Dreamer tells the story of Indie, an eleven-year-old girl who has never felt quite as pretty, nor as strong, nor as smart as her other siblings. It takes a very special friendship, and a treehouse, and a top-secret club, to start Indie on the road to learning that acceptance has to come from within herself before she can find it in those around her. This is an extremely touching story that you won’t want to miss!
