BREAKING NEWS! Jaci Burton lands a two book deal at Bantam Dell and Gena Showalter to shine at MTV BOOKS!!
TKA was hoppin’ this morning as Deidre closed a deal for Jaci Burton. To add to the lively week Gena Showalter also signed a deal with MTV Books. *cheers*
Jaci Burton, “one of Ellora’s Cave’s most popular authors,” has landed a fabulous deal at Bantam Dell with terrific editor, Shauna Summers—only one week after sending out the submission! AND this makes Jaci our 4th author with Bantam Dell. Oh, did I mention it was an auction, too? Yep, 3 houses bidding for SURVIVING DEMON ISLAND with Bantam Dell landing on top!
Here’s her deal announcement on Publisher’s Marketplace: Romance/Women’s Fiction—Jaci Burton’s SURVIVING DEMON ISLAND, the story of a reality show gone awry, where fantasy becomes reality and nothing is what it seems, and a second untitled paranormal romance to Shauna Summers at Bantam Dell at auction in a very nice deal by Deidre Knight at The Knight Agency (World English.)
The excitement doesn’t stop with Jaci though. Gena Showalter also scored a deal this morning for her new young adult novel. Here’s her deal announcement: Gena Showalter's GOTH GIRL, the story of a Goth high school senior who craves individuality, but finds herself in a FREAKY FRIDAY-style universe shift when she enters a virtual reality game where every one else is a Goth and she's just one of the crowd, in a nice deal, to Lauren McKenna at MTV Books, by Deidre Knight at The Knight Agency (world English)
Wow, I can’t wait to read both of these. A spooky romance and a just all around fun novel! Congrats Deidre, Jaci, & Gena!
