John Jarrold’s Corner: Book Deals for Curtis Jobling and Suzanne McLeod

Some great news from John Jarrold: two of his clients have just received great new deals!

PRESS RELEASE – MAJOR US DEAL FOR YA FANTASY SERIES

Zosia Knopp, Rights Director at Penguin UK, has confirmed a two-book deal with Kendra Levin at Penguin US for Curtis Jobling’s new YA Fantasy series WEREWORLD, for a significant sum. World rights in the books were acquired by Shannon Park at Puffin from agent John Jarrold. Puffin will publish the first volume in January 2011.

β€œCurtis and I are delighted that he will be published by Penguin across the English-speaking world. This is a fantastic deal! Congratulations to all involved,” said John Jarrold.

I’m very happy for Curtis and YA readers both! I’m reading Rise of the Wolf at the moment and all I’m going to say is keep a lookout for it in Jan 2011 – I’m pretty sure it’ll be one of the big YA sellers of next year. πŸ™‚

Next up, German readers of Suzanne McLeod’s Spellcrackers series have yet more awesomeness to look forward to:

PRESS RELEASE – GERMAN DEAL FOR THIRD SUZANNE MCLEOD URBAN FANTASY

Krystyna Kujawinska, Foreign Rights Manager at Orion, has sold German rights to THE BITTER SEED OF MAGIC – Suzanne McLeod’s third SPELLCRACKERS.COM urban fantasy – to Goldmann, who have already published the first two books in the series.

Six books in the series have been acquired by Jo Fletcher at Gollancz from agent John Jarrold.

Great news indeed! πŸ™‚

Congrats to both authors – not only are the books kickass (going on what I’ve heard for Suzanne’s Spellcrackers here, haven’t read them yet) but they’re both awesome people, and it’s always great when kickass things happen to great people. πŸ™‚

Be EPIC!
