New Book Deal!


Amy Rose Capetta and Cori McCarthy‘s duology ONCE & FUTURE, pitched as an inclusive retelling of the Arthurian cycle. In a galaxy where corporation is king, an illegal immigrant crash-lands on Old Earth and pulls Excalibur, sealing her fate as the 42nd reincarnation of King Arthur, and awakening Merlin, who has aged backwards into a teenager; together they spark galactic revolution, to Aubrey Poole at Jimmy Patterson, in a very nice deal, at auction, for publication in Summer 2019, by Sara Crowe at Pippin Properties for Capetta and Sarah Davies at Greenhouse Literary for McCarthy (NA).



Rainbow Writers Retreat

Amy Rose and I are thrilled to announce our RAINBOW WRITERS RETREAT at the glorious Writing Barn in Austin, TX!

st29You might remember that back in 2015 we raised over 15k to send boxes of inclusive fiction across the US. This year we are turning to fellow LGBTQIAP writers with a special workshop weekend in which we will be able to talk craft, representation and publishing in a safe, understanding environment.

We are honored to have Dystel, Goderich & Bourret VP and agent Jim McCarthy in attendance.

If you’re a rainbow writer looking to take their career to the next level (published or unpublished), we’d love for you to apply! If you’re an ally, it would mean a lot to us if you helped get the word out!

Much love & cheers for a future full of #ownvoices LGBTQIAP fiction for children and teens!
Cori & Amy Rose
