December 19th, 2015 Kristie Posted in Publishing News Comments Off on Publishing News: Otherworld by Jason Segel & Kirsten Miller

JASON SEGEL AND KIRSTEN MILLER TO PUBLISH A SECOND BOOK SERIES WITH DELACORTE PRESS,FOLLOWING THEIR NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLING MIDDLE-GRADE NIGHTMARES! TRILOGY

Otherworld, a young adult trilogy, to be co-authored with Kirsten Miller and published beginning in 2018

New York, NY, December 17, 2015—Delacorte Press, an imprint of Random House Children’s Books, has acquired and will publish a young adult series by actor, author, and multitalented creative artist Jason Segel and New York Times bestselling author Kirsten Miller. Segel made his publishing debut in 2014 with the bestselling middle-grade trilogy Nightmares!, also co-authored with Miller. The three-book YA deal was announced today by Beverly Horowitz, Vice President, Publisher, Delacorte Press. The series will be edited by Krista Marino, Executive Editor, Delacorte Press.

Jason Segel is an actor and writer, last seen in James Ponsoldt’s The End of the Tour, starring as David Foster Wallace opposite Jesse Eisenberg. Segel wrote and landed his first major leading role in Forgetting Sarah Marshall. He also wrote Disney’s The Muppets, which won an Academy Award in 2012 for Best Original Song. Segel has starred in such films as Knocked Up; I Love You, Man; Jeff Who Lives at Home; and The Five-Year Engagement; among others. On television, Segel starred as Marshall on the hit comedy series How I Met Your Mother for nine seasons, and starred in Judd Apatow’s Emmy-nominated Freaks and Geeks.

Segel and Miller will team up again for OTHERWORLD, an epic young adult trilogy for readers of James Dashner and Lev Grossman. In OTHERWORLD, awkward teenage gamer Simon is given the opportunity to be the first to test the newest set of virtual reality goggles before they hit the market. When his friend Katherine disappears, however, it’s no longer a game. Katherine’s been kidnapped by someone or something inside the virtual world, and saving her is up to Simon. OTHERWORLD is a heart-stopping quest through a Tolkienesque virtual reality world. The future is here. The future is OTHERWORLD.

Says Segel, “Connecting with the readers of the Nightmares! series at events has been a truly special experience for me, and I am incredibly excited to have the opportunity to keep writing stories for these readers, and to grow with them into young adult with OTHERWORLD.

“We were thrilled when Jason shared with us how much he was inspired by his readers and that he had a new series idea. We knew that OTHERWORLD would be the perfect next project,” says Horowitz. “Jason and Kirsten are each amazingly talented on their own, and spectacular as a team. I am so pleased to continue to work with this bestselling duo and to bring their next series to teen readers,” added Marino.

The deal for North American rights to the trilogy was negotiated by Horowitz, with WME, Abrams Entertainment, and Sloane Offer Weber & Dern LLP on behalf of Segel. Terms of the agreement were not disclosed.

Segel and Miller’s bestselling Nightmares! series is an adventure story about a group of kids who realize it’s up to them to save their town from fear, which has manifested itself in the form of nightmare creatures that have slipped into the everyday world. At its heart, Nightmares! is about kids overcoming their fears. Book two, Nightmares! The Sleepwalker Tonic, released this fall, on September 8, 2015, and the final book in the series, Nightmares! The Lost Lullaby, will be published on September 13, 2016.

Kirsten Miller is the author of the acclaimed Kiki Strike trilogy, as well as the New York Times bestselling The Eternal Ones.

About this Book:

Gideon Cross. Falling in love with him was the easiest thing I’ve ever done. It happened instantly. Completely. Irrevocably.

Marrying him was a dream come true. Staying married to him is the fight of my life. Love transforms. Ours is both a refuge from the storm and the most violent of tempests. Two damaged souls entwined as one.

We have bared our deepest, ugliest secrets to one another. Gideon is the mirror that reflects all my flaws … and all the beauty I couldn’t see. He has given me everything. Now, I must prove I can be the rock, the shelter for him that he is for me. Together, we could stand against those who work so viciously to come between us.

But our greatest battle may lie within the very vows that give us strength. Committing to love was only the beginning. Fighting for it will either set us free … or break us apart.

Heartbreakingly and seductively poignant, One with You is the breathlessly awaited finale to the Crossfire® saga, the searing love story that has captivated millions of readers worldwide.

Publishing News: New YA Series With Lauren DeStefano

February 10th, 2013 Angela Posted in Publishing News Comments Off on Publishing News: New YA Series With Lauren DeStefano

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

SIMON & SCHUSTER BOOKS FOR YOUNG READERS TO PUBLISH

A NEW YOUNG ADULT SERIES WITH NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLING AUTHOR LAUREN DESTEFANO

NEW YORK, February 7, 2013 – Lauren DeStefano, the New York Times bestselling author of The Chemical Garden trilogy has signed on to write a brand-new utopian series with Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers. The new series will be published in Spring 2014 and will be called The Internment Chronicles. The title of the first book is Perfect Ruin. In addition to the new series, two short stories will be published as eBooks to complement the story. The final book of The Chemical Garden Trilogy,Sever, goes on sale February 12, 2013.

On Internment, the floating island in the clouds where fifteen-year-old Morgan Stockhour lives, getting too close to the edge can lead to madness. Even though Morgan’s older brother Lex was a Jumper, Morgan vows never to end up like him. She tries her best not to mind that her life is orderly and boring, and if she ever wonders about the ground, and why it is forbidden, she takes solace in her best friend, Pen, and her betrothed, Basil.

Then a murder, the first in a generation, rocks the city. With whispers swirling and fear on the wind, Morgan can no longer stop herself from investigating, especially when she meets Judas. He is the boy being blamed for the murder—betrothed to the victim—but Morgan is convinced of his innocence. Secrets lie at the heart of Internment, but nothing can prepare Morgan for what she will find—or who she will lose. 

“With each book in the Chemical Garden Trilogy, Lauren DeStefano amazed more and more readers,” says Justin Chanda Vice President Publisher of Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers. “Just wait until they read Perfect Ruin!”

Lauren DeStefano adds, “I am over the moon and thrilled to take readers to a different world with this new series. After a great run with my Chemical Garden books, it was just amazing that Simon & Schuster and I could fall in love all over again with new characters as we embark on this latest journey, and it’s something that I can’t wait to share with readers.”

Senior Editor Alexandra Cooper negotiated the deal for North American rights and audio with Barbara Poelle at the Irene Goodman Literary Agency. Translation rights will be handled by Baror International. The first book will be published on April 1, 2014.

Publishing News: Kresley Cole to Publish New Young Adult Series

February 12th, 2012 Angela Posted in Publishing News 1 Comment »

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

#1 BESTSELLING AUTHOR KRESLEY COLE

TO PUBLISH NEW YOUNG ADULT SERIES WITH

SIMON & SCHUSTER BOOKS FOR YOUNG READERS

NEW YORK, Thursday, February 2nd, 2012– Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers announced today that it will publish The Arcana Chronicles, a new young adult series by Kresley Cole, the #1 New York Times and Publishers Weekly bestselling author of the Immortals After Dark (IAD) paranormal series published by sister imprints Gallery/Pocket Books.

Cole’s IAD books have been translated into seventeen foreign languages, have garnered two RITA awards, and consistently appear on bestseller lists in the US and abroad. Lothaire, her first hardcover novel in the series, was published on January 10 and was an immediate New York Times bestseller.

The first book in The Arcana Chronicles is titled Poison Princess and will be published on October 12, 2012. This is the author’s first young adult novel.

Poison Princess centers on sixteen-year-old Evangeline “Evie” Greene, a privileged teenager from Louisiana. When an apocalyptic event decimates her hometown, killing everyone she loves, Evie realizes the hallucinations she’d been having for the past year were actually visions of the future—and they’re still happening. Fighting for her life and desperate for answers, she must turn to her wrong-side-of-the-bayou classmate: Jack Deveaux. As Jack and Evie race to find the source of her visions, they meet others who have gotten the same call. An ancient prophesy is being played out, and Evie is not the only one with special powers. A group of teens have been chosen to reenact the ultimate battle between good and evil. But it’s not always clear who is on which side . . .

“I couldn’t get this idea out of my head, kept imagining what would happen if the twenty-two Major Arcana cards of a Tarot deck—like the Magician, Death, or the Empress—were real kids. I envisioned them with special abilities based on the characteristics of their Tarot card and plotted out how they would use those powers to battle other cards. I’m delighted to have the chance to develop a new mythology around the Arcana,” said Kresley Cole.

“We’re thrilled to have Kresley Cole on our list,” said Justin Chanda. “Kresley’s an expert on books filled with romance, intrigue, passion, adventure, suspense and deceit—all the ingredients for the perfect teen novel!”

Robin Rue at Writers House negotiated the deal with Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers. The deal includes world rights. The Arcana Chronicles will be supported by a major marketing campaign and national author tour.
