New Book Deal!

Those who were at my launch party for Clarity may remember that, during the Q&A, my eight-year-old raised his hand and declared that it was “unacceptable” that he wasn’t allowed to read my book yet and started trying to negotiate an earlier age than the one we’d agreed upon. Everyone busted out laughing. It was probably the highlight of the day for many people. That little spotlight stealer!

Well, now he has good news. He’s not old enough to read the Clarity series, but he’s old enough for my next series.

That’s right! I’m writing a middle grade (ages 9-12) mystery series.

From Publishers Marketplace:
Author of CLARITY Kim Harrington's untitled girls detective agency series, about two smart girls who, for a class project, create a website for a fake detective agency, but then that fake agency gets an email about a real case, to Aimee Friedman at Scholastic, in a three-book deal, for publication in 2012, by Scott Miller at Trident Media Group.

The books will be released back-to-back over three months in Summer 2012. I am so excited! And busy! :) I’m having a blast writing the first book. I love these characters so much. And I can’t wait to share them with you next year.
