I’ve been hinting at an announcement for a few weeks now, and this is it: new print deal. I put out five books with Crown Publishing and loved both the process and the people. Tha Shiv was an excellent editor for my work. But, time marches on and it’s time to try something new. The books discussed below are YA, and Crown doesn’t do YA, so my agent went out and wrangled a new deal.
Executive Editor Mark Tavani at Ballantine Bantam Dell bought World Rights to a science fiction trilogy by New York Times bestselling author Scott Sigler. In the first book, ALIVE, a young woman awakes trapped in a confined space with no idea who she is or how she got there. She soon frees other young adults in the room and together they find that they are surrounded by the horrifying remains of a war long past…and matched against an enemy too horrible to imagine. Further adventures will follow in two more books, ALIGHT and AWAY. The books will be published under the Del Rey imprint. The deal was made by Byrd Leavell at Waxman Leavell. For rights information, please contact Denise Cronin at firstname.lastname@example.org.

It’s an interesting […]Continue Reading →
That’s a harsh title to a post, isn’t it? Maybe, but I think it’s accurate. For those that only read a headline and one paragraph before screaming with Righteous Internet Outrage™, please see these points first:
There is nothing wrong with buying an Advance Reader Copy (ARC) of a book. There is nothing wrong with selling […]Continue Reading →
The news in case you missed it: my horror novel NOCTURNAL is being pitched as a TV series. There, I said it. And yes, it’s true.
And as of Monday, July 8, it’s on like Donkey Kong. The pitching part, I mean. No gold-plated Ferrari for me just yet.
But I’m sure you’re thinking, “Okay, […]Continue Reading →
