New 4-Book Deal for Stephen Deas

::

PRESS RELEASE – THIRD MULTI-BOOK DEAL FOR FANTASY NOVELIST STEPHEN DEAS

John Jarrold has concluded a four-book World Rights deal with Simon Spanton of Gollancz, for fantasy novels by Stephen Deas, for a high five-figure sum in pounds sterling. Deas’ debut novel, a dragon fantasy titled THE ADAMANTINE PALACE, was published by Gollancz in March 2009 and followed by KING OF THE CRAGS this April (the third volume in this series, ORDER OF THE SCALES, will follow early in 2011).

The first book in this deal is a one-off, THE BLACK MAUSOLEUM, related to his dragon fantasies, which will be followed by three further adult titles that entwine that series with Deas’ YA fantasies that open with THE THIEF-TAKER’S APPRENTICE in August. THE BLACK MAUSOLEUM will be delivered in the summer of 2011, with the other books following at yearly intervals.

‘Simon and I did our first three-book deal for Steve at the end of 2007,’ said John Jarrold. ‘With the immediate success of THE ADAMANTINE PALACE in early 2009, we were able to follow that up with another three-book deal that May. And now Steve’s third multi-book deal in two-and-a-half years – which is remarkable testimony to his writing and story-telling, and to the fact that Simon and Gollancz know a good thing when they see one!’

Stephen Deas has worked as a systems designer and project manager for a number of technology-based aerospace companies and has reviewed books for the British SF Association’s magazine VECTOR. He currently lives in Essex with his wife and two sons.

Very, very pleased for Stephen! 🙂 Yes, I know, I’ve yet to read his work, and I’ve got both Adamantine and Crags as well as Thief-Taker, and all I’ll say is ‘So many books, so little time.’ But I’ll get to them, hopefully soon! 🙂

Very pleased, though! Congrats to Stephen, John and Simon! As well as to us readers, of course! 🙂

Be EPIC!
