Angela Morrison is the author of two YA novels - Taken By Storm (2009) and Sing Me To Sleep (2010).
Her third novel, Unbroken Connection, the sequel to Taken By Storm, was recently rejected by her publisher, Razorbill, after her editor left to start her own literary development company.

Hear it from Angela herself:
"While I was picking out outfits for my SING ME TO SLEEP launch trip up to London, Ontario, I got a phone call from my lovely editor. Lexa broke the news that she was leaving Razorbill. Yikes. She is starting her own literary development company, called Paper Lanterns, Inc. I'm excited for her. And SING ME TO SLEEP was launching in just a few days. No worries for me, right?

WRONG! Poor UNBROKEN CONNECTION had lost it's best advocate. Monday evening when I got to my hotel room after a long, long day, there was a short and not particularly sweet rejection email from Razorbill's publisher waiting in my inbox. Nice. Three days before SING's launch. That's kind of the way things go in this business. My agent and I are discussing where to go next with it. I've got a lot of fans asking for it and support from you and a host of wonderful bloggers. That helps so much--believe me! I appreciate it all tons."

  1. Wow!! I've never heard of something like this before. Don't publishing houses have contracts, regardless of if the editor leaves? My heart breaks for this author. I'll check out your links. :)

  2. First I need to tell you that your blog is LOVELY! I've never seen one quite like it.
