World Horror Con 2016

World Horror Con will be in Provo, Utah, next year, from April 28–May 1, 2016, so I’ll be attending. It’s such an honor for them to choose the week of my birth to celebrate horror and all things weird and creepy and murdery and . . . wait a second.

Deal announcements!

Good things seem to come in pairs lately, at least when it comes to book deals. Congrats to both Ginger and Marin on their fantastic new books!

Salt Lake Comic Con 2015

I will once again be gracing Salt Lake Comic Con with my presence, so if you’re going, make sure to stop by one of the panels I’ll be on because I’m totally the reason you’ll be there and not for some really famous actor, right? RIGHT?

Deal Announcements!

I am burning it up this summer with two 2-book deals for clients in June and July, including one at auction. (Technically, it’s because my authors are so amazing that everyone wants to buy their stuff anyway, but shhh don’t tell them that or I’ll be out of a job.)

McDuffie Award nomination for client Nilah Magruder!

M.F.K. by Nilah Magruder

New client Nilah Magruder is a finalist for the inaugural Dwayne McDuffie Award for Diversity. The winner will be announced February 28, 2015, at the Long Beach Comic Expo. She’s up against some big names in the comic industry, including the comics Ms. Marvel, Shaft, and The Shadow Hero. Go read her fantastic webcomic, M.F.K., now so you can say you read it before it was cool. Instant street cred (at comic conventions, obv).

Note: I represent her picture books and YA novels, while Jean Sagendorph handles her comics/graphic novels.

Salt Lake Comic Con FanX 2015
