Happy news!

I have sold three more romantic comedies to Simon Pulse! The announcement on publishersmarketplace.com probably says it best:

"Jennifer Echols's untitled trilogy of romantic comedies, about high school students selected by their class for the senior superlative Who's Who categories like Biggest Flirt and Most Likely to Succeed, and how the labels change the way they view themselves and alter the course of their lives, to Annette Pollert at Simon Pulse, in a very nice deal, in a three-book deal, for publication beginning in early summer 2014, by Laura Bradford at Bradford Literary Agency (World English)."

Unlike my previous five romantic comedies for Simon Pulse, these won't be part of the official Simon Pulse Romantic Comedies line--they're their own series. And though it's hard to say with the publication dates so far away, we're thinking they will be published in May 2014, December 2014, and August 2015.

Hooray, more to write! I love writing romantic dramas like Such a Rush and the book I'm cooking up now, but I would feel a hole in my heart if I didn't have the chance to write YA romantic comedies again. I'm looking forward to these!
