My wonderful book friend, Natalie Lloyd, has sold her debut novel! Here's the news from Publisher's Weekly:
Mallory Kass at Scholastic has acquired world English rights to a debut novel by Natalie Lloyd, called A Snicker of Magic. In the book, a 12-year-old girl moves to a Southern mountain town, sets out to break a century-old curse and bring back a forgotten magic, and finds a home for her wandering heart. It will be published in spring 2014. Suzie Townsend at New Leaf Literary & Media held the two-book auction.
