This is us today at the Highway because it was just announced that our own Kaitlin Ward's debut YA novel has sold to Egmont! And it sounds amazing. From Publishers Weekly: 

Jordan Hamessley at Egmont USA has acquired YA Highway blogger Kaitlin Ward's debut YA novel, Bleeding Earth. In the story, 17-year-old, Lea, and her girlfriend, Aracely, fight for their survival and sanity in a world turned chaotic after the mysterious appearance of blood covers their streets. Publication is set for fall 2015; Sarah LaPolla at Bradford Literary Agency did the deal for world English rights.

Yay Kaitlin! We are so very proud of you!
