Jane Madison Meets the YA Crowd

Posted by on November 30, 2007 in girl's guide to witchcraft, sorcery and the single girl, uncategorized | 19 comments

So, earlier this week, I was up in New York, on business for the day-job.  On a lunch break, I headed downtown to have lunch with my editor (and, it turns out, two other editors in the Harlequin monolith!)  Amid great company, dining on superb food (gorgonzola hazelnut ravioli in a sage butter sauce!), I received most excellent writing news:  GIRL’S GUIDE TO WITCHCRAFT and SORCERY AND THE SINGLE GIRL are going to be re-released this summer as part of a new YA line launched by Harlequin!

The YA books will be trade paperbacks, with new covers.  They’re going to be released under the Mira imprint (Harlequin’s mainstream fiction line).  The program is slated to run for at least three months, and the other authors are Sarah Mlynowski (MILKRUN and FISHBOWL) and Wendy Markham (SLIGHTLY SINGLE and SLIGHTLY SETTLED).

I am absolutely thrilled at the news.  I love Sarah’s and Wendy’s books, and I’m honored to be in their company.  I’ve seen drafts of possible cover art for the new release of my books, and I’m very happy with the ideas.

Basically, I couldn’t be more pleased!

Mindy, sharing good news to round out the crazy month of November
