My happy news: new book deal!

I’m busting out of the edit cave like the Kool-Aid man through a wall to tell you I HAVE GOOD NEWS! I alluded to this in my vacation post, and I’ve been dying to tell you guys. Now, I can!

From Publishers Marketplace:

Kim Harrington's GLIMMER, in which a teenage girl finds a ghost in her house, and tries to unravel the mystery behind the ghost girl's murder, while also falling for the ghost's former boyfriend.

YAY!

GLIMMER is not a CLARITY book. It's a standalone. It's another paranormal mystery--this time…a ghost story. I’m so excited! I’ve always loved ghost stories and haunted house books, so this is a dream come true for me. And, I’ve got to tell you, writing the spooky scenes has been the most fun so far!

So, here’s my release schedule as it stands right now:
CLARITY – 3/1/11
CLARITY Book 2: Electric Woo Woo (not real title) – Spring 2012
GLIMMER (standalone) – Fall 2012
(All three with Scholastic/Point and my Editor of Awesome.)

Three books in two years. I’m about to get very, very busy.

But first, will you join me in a happy dance?
