Seems like she is pretty quick if she's interested. So, going to CNR this.

I never added that Wendy found me a deal, due to the fact that I wasn't supposed to announce it until the publisher did, which was about 2 months after the deal. Anyway, I'm so happy and feel so fortunate that she got me a 2 book deal with HarperCollins with an option for a third. The deal happened 7/15/2015, and the first book, Train I RIde, will be out on 1/24/2017, though I see it is already available for pre-ordering. Quite a long gestation period in this world. I am wrapping up what I hope will be the second book, scheduled for early 2018 release. Wendy is just the best. I'm so happy to have her on my side. Both are realistic Middle Grade fiction.

On 4/18/16, I queried Wendy with Chain Reaction. Since the two week window expired, my query was still in the queue until yesterday. I've nudged her today and got a pass--not a good fit. I'll try her this summer with Venom.
