Deal Announcement: Two Book Deal for Lynn Weingarten

I'm so thrilled to announce a new two-book deal for Lynn Weingarten for a YA thriller called SUICIDE NOTES FROM BEAUTIFUL GIRLS.   The book sold at auction to Simon and Schuster in the US and in the UK, also at auction, to Egmont/Electric Monkey (via our wonderful co-agent Nicola Barr at Greene & Heaton).    Lynn may hold the record on my client list for fastest offer of representation--if you can believe it, two hours from when she first emailed me about her project (which was based on a proposal, so it was a fast read). 

Please join me in congratulating Lynn on twitter, she is an awesome person and a great writer and I'm thrilled to have her on the TBA list:  @lynnweingarten

And here's the announcement from Publisher's Marketplace: 

Lynn Weingarten's SUICIDE NOTES FROM BEAUTIFUL GIRLS, pitched as Gone Girl meets Thirteen Reasons Why, a girl has barely had time to mourn the suicide of her best friend, before the friend's ex-boyfriend convinces her she was murdered, and the girl is swept into a tangle of lies, deceit, and conspiracy, to Liesa Abrams at Simon Pulse, in a good deal, at auction, in a two-book deal, for publication in Spring 2015, by Jenny Bent at The Bent Agency, and to Stella Paskins at Electric Monkey in the UK, by Nicola Barr at Greene & Heaton, at auction.
