Casey Dembowski (CaseyD5915 on QT) has signed with agent Danielle Burby of Nelson Literary Agency, LLC.
My goal in writing has always been to write a book that meant everything to someone, not something to everyone, and Watch the Sky is that book. It's the type of book that speaks to you. For me, the book was The Truth About Forever by Sarah Dessen. I have spent a great deal of time researching agents since finishing my novel, knowing that it needs the right agent and home to reach its audience. After following you on Twitter and on #MSWL, and reading about your interests, I feel that together we can get Watch the Sky to the readers who don't know that they are waiting for it.
It's been ten years since Andi Scott has been to her father’s house. Ten years since she’s driven the familiar mountain roads of Route 17 to Fairford, New York. It’s ten years too soon. Andi has spent the last decade forgetting her father's existence, but ever since the unwelcome news of his death, she has thought about little else. Memories of the year she lived with her negligent, alcoholic—and sometimes abusive—father haunt her and guide her back to a past she has tried to ignore. Nothing is as she expected—not her father's memory, not her now-teenaged siblings, and definitely not the former love of her life, Corey Johnson. As Andi allows those she’s left behind back into her life, she finds that nothing is as she left it and closure is messy.
Witty and honest Watch the Sky is a fresh take on love, loss, and the general ennui of life in your twenties. Watch the Sky is a completed women's fiction manuscript at 75,697 words. It has potential for at least one sequel. Fans of Megan McCafferty, Meg Cabot and Jennifer Weiner will feel right at home in the world of Watch the Sky, and young adult and new adult fans will relate to Andi as she tries to navigate her rocky relationship with Corey.
