NAWS Update!

Hey y’all!

I wanted to do a special post to update you about a couple of the writers I’ve interviewed as part of the Newly Agented Writers Series – the awesome Dan Haring and the brilliant Jenn Johansson. (Click here to read Dan’s interview and here to read Jenn’s.)

First of all, Dan Haring’s novel OLDSOUL came out on April 24th!! *cheers*

Jason Gouvas doesn't want to believe he has special abilities or that he's an Oldsoul-- a vessel for the souls of people who have passed away, but the dead girl in his mind can be very persuasive. Her name is Erin, and through her Jason is able to access the knowledge and skills of the souls within him. And with a group of power-hungry immortals bent on destroying the Oldsouls and overthrowing humanity, he's going to need them all.

Check out his amazing book trailer:

Second of all, Jenn Johansson has a book deal for her novel INSOMNIA! It will be coming out in the United States in 2013.

Here is Jenn’s Publishers Marketplace announcement!

J.R. Johansson's INSOMNIA, about a teen boy who thought spending every night trapped in other people's dreams was bad, but discovers that losing control of his own body and mind is so much worse, to Brian Farrey at Flux, in a two-book deal, for publication in 2013, by Kathleen Rushall at Marsal Lyon Literary Agency (NA).

Congratulations, Dan and Jenn! 


  1. Thanks, Kristin! So cool of you to post this! :)

    1. You're so welcome, Jenn! Congrats again on the book deal! :)

  2. This is great news! I knew about Jenn's book deal (I won a query critique from her recently and she's fabulous), but hadn't heard about Oldsoul. It sounds interesting!

    1. That's great that you won a query critique! You're right,...Jenn is fabulous. :) And you should definitely check out OLDSOUL!
