I’M WRITING A GRAPHIC NOVEL!!!
So, this is the news I’ve been keeping secret so long, and I’m super-super excited about it.
I signed a deal with Calista Brill at FIRST SECOND BOOKS to write two graphic novels.
This all happened because of mutual admiration and Twitter. My career advice is now: Get excited about the things you love, and then TELL EVERYONE.
It’s especially huge news for me because I’ve been reading comics since junior high — and they’re just a really important part of who I am.
The first book won’t come out for a while because Faith and I are both working on other books. And both graphic novels will be new stories, not adaptations. (Though I think Eleanor & Park could be excellent as a graphic novel — and a Simon Snow comic would be so much fun to write.)
