writing news

Sold a novel, which is a big thrill. It's the second one I've sold to Candlewick. I'm honored to be published by such a great publisher. Here's the Publisher's Lunch notice.

Brian Yansky's FIGHTING ALIEN NATION, the sequel to ALIEN INVASION AND OTHER INCONVENIENCES, which continues the story of the survivors of an alien invasion, again to Candlewick, with Kaylan Adair to edit, by Sara Crowe at Harvey Klinger (world English).

So it's another alien book for me. I guess I'm going through my alien period. Thank you little green men.

Thanks for the kind words all. Looks like I will need to buy some new alienwear. Maybe alien jeans, shoes? Maybe it's time for an alien tattoo? Roswell here I come.
