My agent released the good news on PM!


J.A. Kossler's VENOMOID, in which a teenage vampire working for a hostile paranormal agency falls in love with one of the deadly zombies he's meant to capture, while another zombie frames him for a series of murders and causes him to be targeted by his own organization, to Don Weise at Magnus Press, for publication in 2013, by Eric Myers at The Spieler Agency (World English).

Fun facts:
- It was my NaNo 2010 novel
- It is a YA LGBT paranormal romance (m/m)
- The first draft was written in two weeks
- I couldn't have done it without AW's help in critiquing the story and the query letter

So, AW... thank you :) Finding this place has changed my life.

Time to choose an emoticon..

HAPPY TEARS

Thank you AW :) You guys are amazing.

Very cool. And it's nice to see a nanowrimo book that made it to publication.

Oh no, it's better than that.
Gay YA vampire/zombie romance where the vampire has a pet dragon.

I'm serious.

When I started NaNo my original thoughts were "I'm going to write the most ridiculous thing ever" but after the labor of love over the first draft, the characters evolved, the story evolved, and it morphed from something I wrote for my own entertainment to something that spoke to me on a deeper level. c:
