Darcy Woods (woodswrite on QT) has signed with agent Catherine Drayton of InkWell Management.
I'm seeking a home for my whimsical YA Contemporary Romance with emotional grit, SUMMER OF SUPERNOVA, which is complete at 68,000 words. Both a 2013 Golden Heart finalist and finalist in the Yellow Rose RWA Winter Rose Contest, SUMMER OF SUPERNOVA, is also a recent winner of the WRW's Marlene Contest for Young Adult Romance. Since you have previously requested my work, I wondered if this project—given your yen for wry humor and commercial appeal—might be of interest.
When zodiac-obsessed teen, Wilamena Carlisle, discovers a planetary alignment that won't repeat for a decade, she's forced to tackle her greatest astrological fear: The Fifth House—Relationships and Love. Armed with a killer collection of 40's vintage dresses, and a surefire-ish plan to find the Sagittarius of her dreams, Wil embarks on a twenty-two day race for love, before Jupiter's luck expires.
As the daughter of an expert astrologer, Wil knows billions of stars can't be wrong. So when her heart defies the heavens by falling for a sensitive guitar player hailing from the wrong side of the chart, Wil must decide whether a cosmically doomed love is worth shunning her mother's legacy—and the very system in which she places a lifetime of unfailing belief.
Sometimes the greatest leap in life…means never leaving the ground.
