    Continuing our series on publication and our new publication assistance services, we have a few fun announcements to make, and some congratulations to dish out to a few hard-working WriterByNighters.


    First, congratulations to Bridget Farr! Bridget’s middle grade novel, Pavi Sharma’s Guide to Going Home, has been sold to Little, Brown & Company. Pavi is a foster child who starts her own business helping other foster kids navigate the system; but when a fellow foster kid is placed with a family with whom Pavi had a terrible experience, Pavi must help her avoid the same fate. Pavi Sharma’s Gide to Going Home is set for publication in the fall of 2019.

    Bridget worked with WriteByNight’s Resa Alboher in book coaching, and is currently working on a new novel in coaching with Jessamine Chan.


    Congratulations to Mike McGee! Mike’s three-book series about teacher-turned-sleuth Pat Riordan will be published with Black Opal Books. You can follow Pat’s adventures as he grapples with kidnappers, murderers, and, worse, teenagers. Bricked, The Slip Swing, and The Cues are all coming soon to a bookstore near you.

    Mike worked with me in editing and Bridget Apfeld in publication assistance.



    Congratulations to Poppi Z Melera! Moonshine Cove has purchased Poppi’s self-help book, Psychological Warfare: The Power of Mental Strength and the Formula for Victory, in which Poppi offers specific psychological strategies that will allow readers to navigate a person, familial, or professional crisis. Look for Psychological Warfare to be published November 21.

    Poppi worked with WriteByNight’s Lydia Conklin in book coaching, Bridget Apfeld in publication assistance, and Adriana Cloud and me in editorial.


    Congratulations to Elizabeth Carmer! Elizabeth will publish her poetry collection, Halfway Friends for Decades, with WordTech Communications, one of the largest poetry publishers in the country. From Spanish Harlem subway commutes to pastoral scenes of upstate New York, from the Colosseum to Rio De Janeiro, the grocery store, and the shopping mall, Elizabeth’s poems seek to find the universal connections and paradoxical differences between places, times, and individuals.

    Elizabeth worked with WriteByNight’s Nick Courtright in private instruction, Bridget Apfeld in publication assistance, and Adriana Cloud and me in editorial.


    We’re very excited that these wonderful projects have found good homes, and we’re honored to have played a role.
