I've been sitting on this news for awhile, and my publisher just put out their official press release.

My young adult fantasy The Seventh Pleiade sold to Bold Strokes Books!! My author page is up here (http://www.boldstrokesbooks.com/categories.php?category=Paperback-Books/Young-Adult-Fiction/Browse-by-Author/Peters%2C-Andrew-J.).

This is more years in the making than I care to admit. All right, I'll admit it. I guess it's six years, counting all the drafting and the workshopping and the revising and the querying and the close calls and the no calls and everything else. Notably, I went through AW's QLH. While that was some time ago, every piece of feedback along the way led me to this place. I couldn't be happier with my publisher. They're huge with LGBT fiction.

Now onto learning everything I can about marketing and promotion. :)

Good work. There's too little LGBT fantasy that isn't erotica.
