Buzz Signs Knight
Buzz is pleased to welcome British author Magda Knight to the Hive to bring three more Mythology High tales to our young adult short story series. Her series will kick off with “Seal Girl,” which will be available as a Stinger, and then combined with two more stories by Knight and then included into a volume with Jammie Kern’s first three stories in the series. We’re confident this line is going to take off and we’re busy with an outreach campaign to English teachers to make them aware of the series. Knight is the co-founder and editor of the popular blog Mookychick, with more than 7,400 fans. Like it here.
Next Left Cover
What’s love got to do with it? Everything when it comes to a broken-hearted New Yorker coming back home to Kansas for a holiday wedding and New Year’s Eve. “Next Left” by Dani Stone will be a Stinger short story published in ebook formats in late November.

Write that Novel
If you’ve been wanting to write that great American novel and live in the tri-state area (OK, KS, TX) consider making the trip to see us in OKC at Castle & Quill on 10/28 at Castle Falls. We’ve kept the price low and you get lots of tools to help with your planning, such as character boards, index cards (for scene structure and character) as well as a jam-packed workbook with exercises for every aspect of novel craft.
Speaking of London…
We’re in production of G. Michal Burn’s American release of his memoir about his mother’s life as an evacuee in London in 1939 and her relationship with an American soldier. It’s a fascinating read and we’re thrilled we’ll be able to release it in America. It’s undergoing an edit, name change and cover change so we’ll announce it soon. The title will be available by the holidays in print and ebook.
