Publishers Lunch Statement

This is the statement from Publishers Lunch, slightly different from the one that was in Publishers Weekly, notably that it’s the longest sentence ever.

Demitria Lunetta's IN THE AFTER, the first book of a post-apocalyptic trilogy where the seventeen-year-old protagonist must survive in a world overrun by vicious, predatory creatures while protecting the abandoned two-year-old she finds in a desolate grocery store, until the pair finds refuge in a secretive survivors' colony called New Hope, to Maria Gomez at Harper Teen, in a good deal, in a pre-empt, in a three-book deal, for publication in 2012, by Katherine Boyle at Veritas (World English).

I’m going to start working on my edits for Harper Teen pretty soon, so my I’m taking off the next couple of weeks. I’ll be back in May with posts on the submission process, how book advances work, editing for your publisher, and more books I love. See you then!

  2. Looking forward to reading your book and reading your blog entries on the whole process. I just wanted to say personally that I appreciate any look behind the curtain that I can get. Hopefully, your book gets turned into a summertime blockbuster. It sounds like it could be full of powerful plot, great characters, and made for the movies (with tons of special effects).
