Exciting News!

I am thrilled to announce that I have sold another book to my amazing editor at Penguin. (It is unrelated to Shattered Souls.) Here’s the deal announcement from Publisher’s Marketplace:

August 8, 2011 – Children’s Young Adult:

SHATTERED SOULS author Mary Lindsey’s ANNABEL, pitched as a dark retelling of Poe’s final poem Annabel Lee, pitting a pair of star-crossed lovers in a doomed struggle with forces of ancient malice and evil, again to Jill Santopolo at Philomel, by Ammi-Joan Paquette at Erin Murphy Literary Agency (World).
