My Exciting News!!

I've been dying to announce my news for a while, so when a few of my friends saw my announcement on Publisher's Marketplace this morning, I was SO EXCITED!

Here is the official announcement!


November 1, 2013



Children's:
Young Adult 

Chantele Sedgwick's LOVE, LUCAS, follows a teen grieving over her older brother's death who, after finding a notebook full of letters he wrote to her, tries to take control of her depression, fall in love, and start living her life again, to Nicole Frail at Sky Pony Press, in a nice deal, for publication in Spring 2015, by Nicole Resciniti at The Seymour Agency (World).
I still can't believe it. I'm so excited and nervous and scared and SO happy! This book is so so special to me. It's the hardest, yet easiest book I've ever written. I know that may not make sense, but it does to me I guess. :) 

I'm so incredibly humbled to have so many amazing people that have helped me get this far. Thank you to EVERYONE! And a HUGE thanks to my awesome agent and all around amazing person, Nicole Resciniti. Without her, this never would have happened.

I'm going to post about my journey to this point next week. And I might throw in a giveaway or two... But for now, I'm going to CELEBRATE! Have an amazing weekend everyone!!! :D
