The new me is writing high school.
And ghosts, of course. Well, dead people anyway. I've been waiting for the signed contracts to arrive at my agent's office to announce the deal. I forget how PW does this, but it goes something like:
DEAD SCHOOL, a fantastic debut Young Adult novel (Okay, okay, I added the fantastic ) by Randy Russell, acquired by Erica Sussman of Harper/Collins for Summer 2011 release as a HarperTeen imprint hardcover, through Stephanie MacLean, Trident Media Group.
DEAD SCHOOL is my working title. Luck of the world, a new Marvel Comics series will come out in a few months under that title and off I'll go looking for a new one. :-)
