I can't believe I'm writing this post. Like, seriously, I'm sitting here and thinking...
Holy crap! We sold our book! How did that happen??
Two Nanos ago, Cassie Mae asked if I'd like to write a collab with her. Of course I said YES! Then she asked...
What should we write about?
And we thought (I thought? I can't remember if it was her idea, my idea or both of our ideas...haha).
Anyways, we came up with these two.
Kate and Seth
Two kinda average but SUPER busy high school students who have time for NOTHING except school, soccer, basketball, cello, robotics club, National Honors Society...
Basically, they don't have time for each other.
Then they both decide to join the musical OKLAHOMA and things just take off from there.
This was the easiest book I've ever written. (I don't have favorites. These books are my children after all :)). But I knew who Kate was right away, and Cassie's character, Seth is just the cutest, sweetest book boy ever. We finished the story way before Nano was over and changed very little during edits.
And now it's found a home!
Here's the Publishers Marketplace Announcement:
Kelley Lynn and Cassie Mae's NO TIME FOR LOVE, in which two teenagers have little time for anything, including each other... until they're both cast in a high school musical which forces them to realize there are some people in life worth making time for, to Marie Romero at Tulip Romance, for publication in 2015 (World English)
I cannot wait to continue this journey to having Kate and Seth in reader's hands. I love, love, love these guys.
