Welcome, Hailey Twitch!

February 18, 2010

Coming May 1st, 2010…..

This is my first chapter book. It’s also my first series. It’s about a seven-year-old girl who gets a magic sprite that causes all sorts of crazy trouble.

This is what it says on the Barnes and Noble website:

Featuring a seven year-old mastermind who tries really hard not to blame her imaginary friend for getting her into heaps of delicious trouble, Lauren Barnholdt’s new series is both hilarious and heart-warming. Watch out Ramona, Judy, and the rest, Hailey Twitch is coming soon!

I can’t believe it’s going to be out in just a couple of months! This book went through soo many drafts before it sold, I can’t even tell you. It actually started out being a book about ballet, and now the book has absolutely nothing to do with ballet, which is kind of funny. (But maybe not so funny when I was writing drafts ten through fifteen.)

This is the book that I submitted to my agent when she first signed me. It was right after TWO-WAY STREET came out — I was switching agents then, and sort of in flux, so this book is really close to my heart. It was the first book we submitted together, even though it wasn’t the first book we sold.

I love Hailey, I loved writing all the drafts , and I hope other people end up loving her too…
