Incarnate by Jodi Meadows

I am so excited for this book !!!

Let us take a look at her query letter that got her the agent that made the great deal with Harper Collins!

I am seeking representation for my young adult science-fantasy, ERIN INCARNATE, complete at 80,000 words. Why no, I'm not giving up until you say yes. Because you're awesome.

When Erin was born, someone who should have been reborn was not.

For five thousand years, a million souls have been reincarnated into new bodies, retaining their minds and memories of past lifetimes. Erin is the newsoul -- nosoul, they call her -- raised in isolation. On her eighteenth birthday, she leaves her negligent mother and sets out to discover her origins, and whether she'll be reborn like everyone else.

A mysterious man named Sam offers aid. She wants to trust him, but he hides his motivations and theories about her existence.

Surrounded by people who see her as an ugly omen for the future -- what if more nosouls replace people? -- she must untangle Sam's half-truths and ward off her mother's newfound interest. The ruling Council forbade anyone to harm Erin, but someone is trying to kill her, or use her, and the only way to save herself is to uncover the mistake that gave her someone else's life.

ERIN INCARNATE is the first in a planned trilogy. ERIN ASUNDER and ERIN ETERNAL are plotted and ready to be written. In the end, Erin must decide what is more important: billions of people who never lived, or her eternal life with the man she loves.

To further my experience in the publishing industry, I read slush for the now-closed Rappaport Agency []. Before that, Jenny Rappaport was briefly my agent. We parted ways on good terms.

Best wishes,
