THE GIRL WHO CIRCUMNAVIGATED FAIRYLAND IN A SHIP OF HER OWN MAKING

From Publisher's Marketplace, 10/26/09
Catherynne Valente's THE GIRL WHO CIRCUMNAVIGATED FAIRYLAND IN A SHIP OF HER OWN MAKING, an Alice-in-Wonderland-like YA fantasy adventure, originally published chapter by chapter on the author's website, and THE GIRL WHO FELL BENEATH FAIRYLAND AND LED THE REVELS THERE, to Liz Szabla at Feiwel and Friends, by Howard Morhaim at the Howard Morhaim Literary Agency (NA).

This is incredible! After publishing her entire book, chapter by chapter, online, Catherynne Valente landed a book deal with Feiwel and Friends. I don't know the particulars, but this is awesome! Here is the link to her website where you can read for yourself...

I think the writing is wonderful. Hats off to the talented and resourceful Catherynne Valentine.

  1. Wow, this goes to show that all the rules are out the window in today's publishing. I've been told to be careful how much we put online, that if it's more than snippets it may jeopardize getting a contract. Truly amazing news.

  2. What a story! I always love hearing stories like this because it's so different and fun how people can go the untraditional path.
