When someone you've known and admired a long while sends you a manuscript for consideration, and it turns out to be fun and thoughtful and fast-paced and marketable, it's like hitting the jackpot. When that manuscript gets an offer on its first submission round, it's like a double jackpot. And when it's a FOUR-BOOK offer, with an editor who really gets it, well, there just are no words for how awesome that is.
Drum roll, please....
Erin Stein at Imprint has acquired debut author Kat Shepherd's middle-grade series Babysitting Nightmares, pitched as Goosebumps meets Babysitters Club, in a four-book deal, for twice-a-year publication starting fall 2018.
Huge congratulations, Kat! You are on your way!
