YA NOVELIST MELODY MAYSONET has just signed a publishing contract for her debut Young Adult novel, A WORK OF ART (Merit Press), due out in Spring 2015. Melody writes, Jamie, Thank you for the inspiration and knowledge you bestowed on me during the writing of the first draft. Not only that, but you gave me a killer critique for my revision. I revised based on your feedback, so the manuscript that got sold reflects your amazing instincts. Thank you so much.
