In follow up to my recent post, congratulations are once again in order for my friend and fellow writer, Amy Gail Hansen. Her debut novel, The Butterfly Sister, will soon be published by HarperCollins, whose label includes so many of my favorite authors, such as Neil Gaiman, Michael Chabon, Joe Hill, Meg Cabot, Christopher Moore, Kim Harrison, Ray Bradbury, and Wally Lamb, just to name a few. The Butterfly Sister will be part of the William Morrow collection, an imprint of HarperCollins, and the foreign rights are already being optioned by other well-known publishers across Europe.
From the moment I first reviewed the initial rough draft, I knew Amy’s book would be a hit. The story is not only a page-turner, but Amy’s writing talent is evident throughout every chapter. Rarely do I have the pleasure of reading such a strong and fluent voice and writing style in a debut novel. Amy’s success is well deserved, and it absolutely couldn’t happen to a nicer person!
I’ll post details as the book hits bookstore shelves.
