Kasie West's THE DISTANCE BETWEEN US, a humorous love story about a girl who has her lifelong disdain of the wealthy challenged by the son of a hotel mogul, whose attention and loyalty almost convince her that being rich isn't a character flaw, until she finds out that money is a bigger part of their relationship than she realized, to Sarah Landis at Harper Teen, in a very nice deal, in a two-book deal, for publication in Fall 2013, by Michelle Wolfson at Wolfson Literary Agency (World English).

I sold another book!
I feel so very lucky. Truly, very lucky.
I love to read contemporary. It's one of my favorite genres. So when I decided to try my hand at writing it, I was terrified. More than terrified. At first I wrote it to get it out of my system. To fail miserably at it. But I fell in love with this story. I am so happy that my editor (Sarah the awesome) loves it as much as I do and so grateful she thinks I can write another contemporary. Don't tell her I said this, but, I sure hope I can. Ha!
This book, THE DISTANCE BETWEEN US, will come out in between PIVOT POINT and its sequel.
Guess this means I need to break out the hair dye. :) Have I mentioned how much I love my agent? No? Michelle Wolfson, you are amazing!
