Congratulations to Sara Hantz!

I've been battling the head cold from hell here over the last few days, as well as grappling with several stubborn synopses, but I'm delighted to emerge from the cave to share some more very exciting news! My fabulous CP, Sara Hantz, has recently sold to Entangled Teen!

Congratulations, Sara! You know how much I've always loved this book!

Will the Real Abi Saunders Stand Up will be published in 2014.

Here's the blurb!

Seventeen year old Abi Saunders might be a kick boxing champion, but when it comes to meeting new people she’s not so brave. Which is why when her trainer suggests she audition to become stunt double for hot teen movie star, Tilly Watson, she refuses. No way. Absolutely not.  However, it seems her trainer isn’t the only one who thinks she needs to come out of her shell. So does everyone else at the gym – even her training partner Matt and best friend Jody. So she reluctantly goes for the job and, to her surprise, wins it.   At first Abi is terrified but once the wig and make-up are on, she starts to feel like a different person. Tilly Watson to be exact. And when Tilly’s gorgeous boyfriend mistakes Abi for the real star, Abi becomes besotted with him. In fact Abi becomes so besotted with her new life it isn’t long before she doesn’t have time for her old friends or her old life. But when the cameras are turned off Abi painfully discovers her new life is a sham and she realises she hasn’t just had stars in her eyes, but in her head too. What a fool she’s been. But it’s not too late, because Abi manages to take back control of her life and right her wrongs.
