Publishing News: New YA Series With Lauren DeStefano

February 10th, 2013 Angela Posted in Publishing News Comments Off

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.

Publishing News: Musa Publishing Opens its Electronic Doors

November 8th, 2011 Angela Posted in Publishing News 2 Comments »

For Immediate Release:

Ebooks,Penumbra eMag, and so much More

Musa Publishing Opens its Electronic Doors

After months of editing, designing, contracting, and formatting Musa Publishing launches on October 1, 2011. The E-publisher opens with a large catalogue including Penumbra Speculative Fiction eMag, new works by three bestselling authors, and the full backlist of Aurora Regency, featuring traditional Regency romances and historical fiction.

Penumbra eMag

Penumbra’s inaugural issue is a collection of speculative fiction stories that encompass the arts–the arts we love and revere. Some of these stories deal with the arts we’re familiar with. Some create arts we haven’t thought of and some resurrect arts buried in the depths of the past.  And yet, all of these offerings celebrate the creative process, which makes them a fitting theme to launch Penumbra–an enterprise that will showcase the creative work of speculative fiction authors each month with a new collection of works within the genre.

Publishing News: Philippa Gregory Signs Major Young Adult Deal

September 18th, 2011 Angela Posted in Publishing News 1 Comment »

Fans of author Philippa Gregory will be pleased to know that she just signed a deal to write four young adult historical romance titles. More details to be found in the official press release below.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

 

PHILIPPA GREGORY SIGNS MAJOR YOUNG ADULT

INTERNATIONAL PUBLISHING DEAL WITH SIMON & SCHUSTER

 

New York, NY, Thursday, September 15, 2011 – Philippa Gregory, the #1 international bestselling author of The Other Boleyn Girl and The Red Queen will publish her first-ever young adult titles under a new global publishing agreement with Simon & Schuster.

Ingrid Selberg, Director of Children’s Publishing for Simon & Schuster UK, and Jon Anderson, Executive Vice President and Publisher of Simon & Schuster Children’s Publishing have jointly acquired world rights to four young adult historical romance titles from Philippa Gregory Limited via Anthony Mason. The books will be edited by Venetia Gosling, Fiction Editorial Director at S&S UK Children’s, with the first title planned for publication in hardcover in summer 2012.

Philippa Gregory is a leading writer of historical fiction and one of Simon & Schuster’s most successful authors on the global publishing scene. A mega-bestselling adult author under the Simon & Schuster Touchstone imprint, Philippa Gregory’s books have nearly 9 million copies in print. Her Tudor and The Cousins’ War novels have all made the New York Times Bestseller list with The Other Boleyn Girl reaching the #1 spot. Her hugely successful Tudor series was adapted as a hit TV drama in 2007 and The Other Boleyn Girl was made into a major film in 2008.

The new deal sees the Philippa Gregory brand being extended to a new generation of readers, bringing her historical expertise and critically acclaimed storytelling to a younger audience. The books will receive a coordinated worldwide publication in the United States, the United Kingdom, Canada, Australia and India, and in tandem with her adult fiction (for which Gregory signed a new three book deal with Simon & Schuster in October 2010), with a comprehensive marketing and publicity campaign across both lists. The books will be published by the Simon Pulse imprint in the Unites States.

“I am delighted to move into a new form of writing,” said Philippa Gregory, “I know I have many young readers already and it will be a pleasure to write a series especially for them. Bringing history alive is a great joy and to bring it to a young generation doubly so.”

Jon Anderson added: “Philippa Gregory is the gold standard for historical fiction. These books are an irresistible combination that will introduce a whole new group of readers to Philippa Gregory, and we look forward to working closely with Philippa to make this new venture a great success.”
