So much IF YOU FIND ME News Plus Video!
October 13, 2015

Hi, everyone!

It’s been quite a busy year as an author, but packed with absolutely lovely surprises for this lucky little book of mine.

Some of the news I can share: two new sales to Brazil and Turkey, along with the novel’s nomination/shortlisting for both the German Buxtehuder Bulle Award and the German Children’s Literature Prize, the latter to be announced on Friday, October 16th, at the Frankfurt Book Fair.

Other news that has me bursting at the seams will have to keep, but as soon as I can share, I will.

That said, I had a great time answering questions posed by my Brazilian readers, book bloggers and reviewers about IF YOU FIND ME.

Obrigada, Brazil!

Agir Now even made the novel a playlist! (Number 9 has always been Carey’s anthem, very cool!)

I hope everyone is safe and well, and I wish you and yours a joy-filled and *glorious* Holiday Season!

IF YOU FIND ME a Carnegie Medal ’14 nominee! Plus All. The. News.
November 11, 2013

How can I begin to find adequate words?

**IF YOU FIND ME is an official nominee for the Carnegie Medal 2014!**

 The CILIP Carnegie & Kate Greenaway Children’s Book Awards – Press Desk

I believe the simply profound truth is that there are no words. (Even for a writer, sometimes!) Being nominated is an honor, a blessing, and a moment I’ll never forget. Ever.

Ever.

That being said, it’s been awhile since I’ve updated everyone. I’ve posted bits of news here and there, but I wanted to be sure I posted all the wonderfulness here, to share with all of you, since this blog is where it all began.

Firstly, *thank you* for your lovely fan letters and emails. They are precious to me, make me smile daily, and remind me of why I write; how these paper worlds of words and ideas really can change the world, both inside and out.

For everyone inquiring, I hope to have second novel news, soon. More on that in the future.

In the meantime …

Sold Dutch and German Rights For The Patron Saint Of Beans!
March 5, 2012

The official post. : )

Here it is, from Publisher’s Marketplace:

International rights: Fiction
Rights to Emily Murdoch’s THE PATRON SAINT OF BEANS, to Heyne in Germany, by Agence Hoffman, and Van Goor in the Netherlands, by Mo Literary Services, on behalf of Taryn Fagerness Agency and Mandy Hubbard of D4EO Agency.

I couldn’t be more excited at the thought of sharing my novel abroad. It’s looking like it’ll come out in the Netherlands approximately Summer 2013, and I’m not sure yet of the date for Germany.

I can’t wait to hold these two versions in my hands, even if I can’t read them, myself!

I wish all writers the same good fortune and this same amazing feeling.

Last but far from least, a huge thank you to Taryn Fagerness and her sub-agents, and to Mandy Hubbard, and Bob Diforio. I’m luckiest of all to be in such capable, wonderful hands. : )
