My critique partner, Amy Christine Parker, had a big announcement today:
Parker Lands at RH Children’s for Debut YA
Amy Christine Parker closed a two-book deal with Suzy Capozzi at Random House Children’s Books for her debut effort, The Silo. Capozzi bought world rights, for six figures at auction, from Lucienne Diver at the Knight Agency. The YA book, which is scheduled for fall 2013, follows a teenage girl named Lyla who has been living in a religious cult after the disappearance of her sister. While her parents are hopelessly under the sway of the group’s leader, Pioneer, Lyla is drawn into a dangerous situation when she begins to question Pioneer’s prophecy about the impending apocalypse.
2013 is going to be a big year for my wonderful critique partners, as my other partner, Dianne Salerni, has Caged Graves coming out that year as well. Caged Graves sold to Clarion last summer.
Congratulations, ladies! You're both amazing!
