BIG NEWS: Four new books AND a film deal!!!!
Hey everyone! For months I’ve been keeping mum as we negotiated all the details of my exciting new book deal with my publisher, Macmillan Children’s and I guess all the “mumness” paid off because in the midst of our negotiations, my brilliant and savvy agent, also managed to put together a film deal!
As reported in Publisher’s Weekly today, I recently sold four new books to Macmillan. The first three are part of an exciting sci-fi/love story trilogy, starting with the first book titled, UNREMEMBERED. (A sixteen year old girl awakes amongst the wreckage of a devastating plane crash with no memories–the only clue to her identity is a mysterious boy who claims she was part of a science experiment 100 years in the future) And I’ve also sold another one of my contemporary stand-alone titles (along the vein of The Karma Club and my forthcoming, My Life Undecided). This fourth book is not yet titled.
The Unremembered trilogy was optioned to producer Doug Davison (The Departed, The Lake House, The Ring, How to Train Your Dragon) with screenwriter Whit Anderson attached to adapt it as a film. Doug and Whit are both also attached to the recently-announced reboot of the Buffy the Vampire Slayer movie.
This is by far, the biggest news of my career to date! And I’m beyond excited as it brings the count of my total books sold to…NINE! I can hardly believe it! I remember when I made that first sale. Way back in 2006. I never, in a million years, imagined myself a few years later with a total of NINE books!
If you want the full details (including more info about the Unremembered trilogy), you can read Publisher’s Weekly’s write up here: http://www.publishersweekly.com/pw/by-topic/book-news/deals/article/45329-deals-week-of-11-29-10.html
And now, I better go. I have a LOT of books to write! 🙂
But first, thank you all for your support of my writing career over the years. Being able to write books for a living is a dream come true. I’m so grateful for all of you!
