John Jarrold’s Corner: 2-Book Deal for Paul Kearney!

30 Sep

Remember way back (well, not so long ago, it was only last year) I reviewed Paul Kearney’s The Ten Thousand and also got the exclusive on the title of the second Macht book? Well, guys and girls, there’s not only going to be a second book in the series, but a third, too! 🙂

Check out the awesome announcement:

PRESS RELEASE – TWO-BOOK DEAL FOR FANTASY NOVELIST PAUL KEARNEY

Jonathan Oliver, commissioning editor of Solaris Books since the imprint’s acquisition from Games Workshop by Rebellion earlier this month, has acquired two new novels by Paul Kearney, set on the same world as his successful Solaris novel THE TEN THOUSAND. The agent was John Jarrold, and the deal was for UK/US rights.

These novels, entitled CORVUS and KINGS OF MORNING, are due for delivery in 2010 and early 2011 respectively.

“The immediacy of Paul’s prose and characterisation always puts me in mind of David Gemmell, who I was lucky enough to publish in the mid-1990s,” said John Jarrold. “With THE TEN THOUSAND he has created a world ripe for re-visiting. Can’t wait to read these books! And I’m very pleased to have concluded my first deal with Jon Oliver and the ‘new’ Solaris.”

Awesome news or what?! 🙂 I will honestly say that I was really worried when Solaris was sold; kudos to everyone involved in not letting such an awesome imprint sink and in making sure that the authors were all looked after! Congrats to Paul, John and Jonathan, as well as all the readers out there – we’re in for some awesome stuff! 🙂
