Happy (late) 4th of July, everyone! Today we have more awesomely wonderful REGIONAL MEMBER NEWS to start the week of!
Alexandra Cooper at HarperTeen has bought, in a two-book deal, an untitled debut novel by Kathy MacMillan. The first book, which is scheduled for winter 2016, is described as “a sweeping fantasy in the tradition of Megan Whalen Turner and Diana Wynne Jones.” It follows a girl from the underclass who is chosen to be one of four in the kingdom to learn the language of the gods, and unwittingly uncovers a secret that goes back to ancient times. Steven Malk at Writers House did the deal for world English rights.
Kathy is also the founder of The Sweet Sixteens, a group for Young Adult and Middle Grade authors debuting in 2016.
Congratulations and a mighty woo-HOO, Kathy, this is wonderful news! I’m looking forward to reading your books.
