I'm incredibly excited to announce that I sold a third young adult novel to Amulet Books: The Steep and Thorny Way. Here's the official announcement from Publishers Marketplace:

IN THE SHADOW OF BLACKBIRDS and THE CURE FOR DREAMING author Cat Winters's THE STEEP AND THORNY WAY, pitched as inspired by HAMLET, a half-white, half-black girl in 1920's Oregon must deal with Prohibition, the KKK, and her father's murder, to Maggie Lehrman and Erica Finkel at Amulet, by Barbara Poelle at the Irene Goodman Agency (world English).
Translation: Baror International

The Steep and Thorny Way is slated to be released Spring 2016, and I'm thrilled to pieces that Amulet Books, the same publisher of my first two YAs, will be helping me bring it into the world. I'm so pleased with their work on my other novels.

Thank you to my indefatigable agent, Barbara Poelle, and Amulet Books for making this sale possible!

As always, keep an eye on this site for future updates about this book and my other projects.
