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.
The moral of this story? It pays to take Tod’s UCLA course. Hell, I may take it.
