I love writing for the middle grade crowd. And I love Scholastic, who do such a great job getting books into the hands of kids.

And now I get to write a MG series for Scholastic.
Here's the official announcement from Publisher's Marketplace:
IT'S RAINING CUPCAKES author Lisa Schroeder's CHARM SISTERS, a four-book series pitched as SISTERHOOD OF THE TRAVELING PANTS for tweens, featuring four girls who meet at summer camp and believe they've found a lucky charm necklace, to Amanda Maciel at Scholastic, by Sara Crowe at Harvey Klinger (world).
Yay!!! I hope you're as excited as I am!
The deadlines are tight though, so that the first two books can come out in 2014. Which means I'm working like a crazy person to finish the first book so I can move on to the second one. I'm having a lot of fun, though, and am excited my MG readers will have more to read next year.
Let's eat some cupcakes to celebrate, what do you say?
