Introducing THE STEEP AND THORNY WAY!

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.

Thank you so much! I'm thrilled this book is moving forward and found a home with Amulet Books. I started writing it last summer but had to put it on the back burner for my adult novel. I love it dearly and can't wait to share more about it.

SO EXCITED about this book :D And omg, I love the title. <3 Congrats Cat :) But ack. Spring 2016 feels forever away.. lol. <3

Cat Winters said...

Thanks, Carina! Yes, 2016 feels far away, but I actually need to finish writing the book! I sold it based on four chapters and a synopsis, so I'll be busily writing away during every spare moment between now and November.

I can't wait to share more about this one. Thanks for your excitement!
