by Laura Bickle
This has been a bountiful season, and I've been the recipient of a lot of good fortune in the last year. I’m content in a wonderful new day job. I’ve had the chance to travel to New York for the 2011 RWA conference. And my husband and I adopted a new fur person, who is the apple of my eye. She chirps and sings like a bird, and it’s lovely to have that kind of energy in the house.
Most recently, I’ve had the opportunity to announce a new project. Here’s the Publisher’s Marketplace announcement:
“Laura Bickle's THE HALLOWED ONES, pitched as "Witness" meets "28 Days Later" in which an Amish girl must protect her family from a violent contagion, even as fear and denial threaten to erode her community from within, to Julie Tibbott at Graphia, for publication in fall 2012 and a sequel in spring 2013, by Becca Stumpf at Prospect Agency (NA).”
I’m over the moon. And with the new project comes new responsibilities…and deadlines! As a result, I'm stepping down from Word Whores to refocus on work.
I've really enjoyed my time with the Word Whores, and have learned a lot from each and every one of you. Keep in touch, and keep on writing!
