The currently untitled series, is, according to Harlequin, about a “dangerous rivalry for souls and star-crossed love” that is “set in a world where real life begins after death.” – Source Publishers Weekly
LOVE Gena Showalter so much and I’m excited she#s going to write the next YA series after Alice in Zombieland will be over! Go Gena!
“Kristin Daly Rens at HarperCollins imprint Balzer + Bray has bought, in a six-figure deal, two books in a YA fantasy series by Rosamund Hodge, author ofCruel Beauty. The new series, pitched as “Romeo and Juliet meets Sabriel,” re-imagines Shakespeare’s story of feuding families and doomed lovers in a city threatened by necromancers and protected by “the Juliet,” a girl born in every generation with powerful magic. Publication will start in spring 2016 – Source Publishers Weekly
Cruel Beauty was so different and awesome so I can’t wait to read her next series!
Sara Sargent at Simon Pulse has acquired Last Year’s Mistake and an untitled YA novel by debut author Gina Ciocca. In the first book, Kelsey is given the chance to start over: move to a new city, shed her old reputation, begin afresh. But a year later, the boy she desperately wanted to forget – the one who’d confessed his love for her – shows up and changes everything. Publication is scheduled for summer 2015;” – Source Publishers Weekly
Sounds like a great Contemporary!
Sara Sargent has also acquired, in a pre-empt, Heartless Things and an untitled YA novel by Lisa Maxwell. In the story, Gwen and her best friend are abducted to a dark world akin to Pan’s Labyrinth called Neverland, but it’s nothing like the fairy tale. To rescue her friend, Gwen must decide whether to trust a roguish young pirate or the boy who calls himself Pan. Publication is scheduled for spring 2016; – Source Publishers Weekly
Neverland and Peter Pan??? A young pirate????? Oh please bring it on!
Michael Strother at Simon Pulse has acquired, in a pre-empt, two YA novels by debut author Tim Floreen. The first, Willful Machines, is a light SF story centered on Lee Fisher, the closeted son of an ultra-conservative president, who loves science, robots and possibly, the Shakespeare-obsessed new boy at school. But when a sentient computer program turns into a terrorist threat, Lee’s life and secrets are in danger. Publication is planned for fall 2015; – Source Publishers Weekly
SO we get more Paranormal, more Scifi and Contemporary! I Personally am the most excited about Gena’s new series and the Pirate/Peter Pan story!!
