Brace yourself… here are two posts in a row pegged on my younger brother Tod, the literary novelist and teacher. Or should I say, star-maker. Two of his students have won big-time publishing contracts…and it ain’t with PublishAmerica.
First there was Lorna Freeman, who landed a three-book deal with Del Rey for her fantasy novel COVENANTS, which became a bestseller. She signed at the Festival of Books last year and Tod was so proud, I think he pushed her book more than his own.
Now there’s Eduardo Santiago, who has just sold his first novel TOMORROW THEY WILL KISS to Little Brown.
The moral of this story? It pays to take Tod’s UCLA course. Hell, I may take it.
