As of November, 2011, my manuscript for Letters From the Sky has been accepted by JMS publishing, in their YA section, QueerTeen.
Here is the official synopsis for LFTS:
Jeanne is now in her eighth year of school, and never has the world seemed more strange. Her little town grows greyer and greyer, and every day the radio tells news of a war that is just far enough away that it does not matter.
What does matter to Jeanne are the immediate things: her friends, her family, and a magical guardian, Jericho, who visits her when she is asleep. Jericho’s love for her, however, seems so perfect as to be impossible, and when Jericho begins to disappear for weeks at a time, Jeanne is not sure that she can believe that Jericho is real, any longer.
Fate, however, has other plans, and soon Jeanne is faced with both the reality of her guardian and the reality of the war, as both make their physical marks on her world.
More updates to come, including cover art. Release date is tentatively for June, 2012. Until then, please get excited. You can read an excerpt from Chapter Three here: https://tamerlorika.wordpress.com/2011/07/23/excerpt-letters-from-the-sky-rated-pg/
