Starting out with Leah Cypess, she has sold a short story to Sword & Sorceress, and it will be published in the next edition of the anthology (Sword & Sorceress 27.) The story is called Straw-Spun and it's a "sequel" to Rumpelstiltskin, which, I'd like to point out for the record, is one of the creepiest of the Grimm's Fairy Tales. Can't wait!
Meanwhile, Kate Milford has sold not one, but TWO new books!
Author of THE BONESHAKER and THE BROKEN LANDS Kate Milford's LEFT-HANDED FATE, a nautical fantasy set in 1813 in which three kids from both sides of the conflict join forces to find the pieces of a legendary device they believe will stop the wars in the Atlantic, to Noa Wheeler at Holt Children's, for publication in Fall 2014, by Ann Behar at Scovil Galen Ghosh Literary Agency (World English).
Author of THE BONESHAKER and THE BROKEN LANDS Kate Milford's GREENGLASS HOUSE, about a boy who discovers that each of the strange guests snowed in over the winter holidays at his parents' remote inn believes there is a secret hidden somewhere in the house, and he and the cook's daughter, a role-playing gamer, make up a campaign to find the inn's secret before anyone else, to Lynne Polvino at Clarion, for publication in Spring 2014, by Ann Behar at Scovil Galen Ghosh Literary Agency (World).
How insanely awesome is that? And to top it off, her Kickstarter campaign for The Kairos Mechanism is at 102% so the project is a go! There are two weeks left for fundraising. At $7500, the paychecks for the young artists who are illustrating the special edition will be increased; at $9500 Kate can announce the second volume in the series (for 2013); and at $13500 she'll have raised enough to commit to doing a reader-illustrated edition for that second novella. So anyone who hasn't become a backer that wants to should hurry over!
