Posted 08 March 2016 - 10:03 AM

I am thrilled to finally be able to announce that I have a two-book deal with HarperTeen (HarperCollins) for my YA contemporary IF YOU CAN'T FLY and another YA standalone. Tentative publication date for the first is fall 2017. 

 

Thanks to everyone who helped me with my query!

 

Here's the announcement from Publishers Marketplace: 

 

Debut author Anna Priemaza's IF YOU CAN'T FLY, about two teens who meet working on a science fair project and form the first real friendship either has ever had by bonding over panic attacks, ADHD, and their mutual obsession with a YouTube star who does walkthroughs of their favorite video game, to Stephanie Stein at Harper Teen, in a two-book deal, by Lauren Abramo at Dystel & Goderich Literary Management (NA).

Nice! I know you've been sweating this out for a long time. 

 

Is it just me, or does this sound like it would make a good TV series? :)
