Sweet Success: Darby Karchut


Here at Pikes Peak Writers, we like to toot our fellow members' horn. Join in on the happiness with this report of Sweet Success:

Darby Karchut signed a contract in June with Twilight Times Books for her YA urban fantasy: Griffin Rising.

She started the novel in July of 2009, completed it in November of that same year, began sending queries in February of 2010, and landed a contract in June 2010. Needless to say, Darby has no life. None, whatsoever. She also is a social studies teacher at Cheyenne Mountain Junior High.

Griffin Rising is her debut novel. She is currently working on the sequel entitled Griffin's Fire.

Congrats to Darby!!! I think this calls for some cake...
