So, I've been sitting on this news for a while, but I've finally got the go-ahead to tell you about my new project--that we just sold!! And another ! And maybe five more, for good measure !!!!!
I'm so, so excited about this one. It took me a long time to come up with an idea that felt as authentic and fresh as Paranormalcy, but I can honestly say I am prouder of this book than I am of anything I've ever written. With no further ado, the Publisher's Marketplace announcement:
In a major deal, in a pre-empt, with a rumored film already in the works, agent Michelle Wolfson sold world rights to NYT bestselling author Kiersten White's newest trilogy. The first book, as yet untitled, revolves around a shy, awkward girl who moves from the desert to a rainy northwest town where everyone wants to be her friend, but she only has eyes for the incredibly beautiful--and obviously dangerous and quite possibly undead--boy who acts as though he wants to kill her. Within minutes of the deal teen girls across the nation were already dividing into teams based on love interest preferences, and a marketing campaign designed to make girls (and grown women) everywhere break up with their boyfriends because they cannot possibly measure up to a fictional romance is already in the works. Internationally bestselling phenomenon Stephenie Meyer, when told about the deal, was heard to remark, "I swear I already wrote that book."
