The Tale of Una Fairchild…coming soon to a bookstore near you!

Well, it’s official, even if I can hardly believe it!  Here’s the announcement from the Publisher’s Weekly Children’s Bookshelf:

Erica Sussman at HarperCollins Children’s Books has bought world English-language rights to two middle-grade novels by debut author Marissa Burt.  The first, tentatively titled The Tale of Una Fairchild, is currently slated for a winter 2012 release.  The fantasy novel follows 12-year-old misfit Una, who stumbles into an otherworld and an ongoing battle between good and evil.  Agent Laura Langlie negotiated the deal.

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

So a huge thank you to all of you who have been pulling for UNA, who read rough (and I mean, rough) early drafts of the manuscript, and who have been so encouraging and supportive.  And many, many thanks to all my family: for dreaming with me, for good advice and feedback, and for all the babysitting hours.  Add that to all the appreciation I have for the hard work of my agent Laura Langlie and the investment of Erica Sussman at HarperCollins, and I might just go prepare a thanksgiving feast in the middle of March!

Thanks again, everyone, and I’ll keep you posted on book news as it comes in.
