In Celebration!



Hello Friends,




I am popping in here to share some MARVELOUS NEWS!!!


My talented friend, Cristin Terrill, went on sub recently and quickly went to auction (!) and this is what became of it (!!!): 


from Publishers Weekly, Deals, week of 3/5/12


Disney Believes In ‘Yesterdays’ (Lola says: I DO TOO!)
In another major YA acquisition leading up to Bologna, Emily Meehan at Disney-Hyperion won North American rights at auction to Cristin Terrill’s debut, All Our Yesterdays. The YA book, which was sold by Diana Fox at Fox Literary, fetched an advance rumored to be in the six-figure range, and the book is scheduled for fall 2013. There is also strong interest in the title--Disney said it was pitched as “a cross between The Terminator and The Time Traveler’s Wife--in Hollywood. The novel, given its comparative titles, unsurprisingly has a time travel element; it’s about two teenage girls, the wealthy and popular Marina and the impoverished (and imprisoned) Em, who are, in actuality, the same person.



I KNOW you want to hear the rest of her exciting story in her own words, and hear all about the book itself (which is really special) so please stop over to visit her blog. You'll be glad you did. 




Love,
Lola

About Me

My Photo
Lola Sharp
My name is Lola. (I'm not a showgirl) Yes, L-O-L-A Lola. It's the least of my worries. Let's move on, shall we? This blog is mostly about my misadventures on the journey to publication and beyond. My passion for lush prose, quirky characters, art, music, literature, performing arts and anything creative will be a major theme here. This journey of mine will not always be pretty. Much like rubbernecking a train wreck, I know sometimes you just can't help but look at the carnage that is often my life. So strap on your neck brace, helmet and 5-point harness and come along for the ride! Licentia poetica.
