A few Publishers Lunch YA deals.
From Publishers Lunch:
Eve Silver's RESPAWN, the first book in a teen series about a girl who finds herself inside a "game" where she must hunt aliens, or be hunted by them, to Sarah Shumway at Katherine Tegen Books, in a pre-empt, in a three-book deal, by Robin Rue at Writers House (NA).
Kimberley Griffiths Little's GODDESS, pitched as "the YA Red Tent", to Karen Chaplin at Harper Children's, in a pre-empt, in a three-book deal, for publication in beginning in 2013, by Tracey Adams at Adams Literary (US).
I've been noticing the 'in a game/book' thing more and more over the last couple of years—and now it's being COMBINED with aliens. I'll read it.
