!!!!! !!!!! !!!!! !!!!! !!!!! !!!!! !!!!! !!!!! !!!!! !!!!! !!!!! !!!!! !!!!! !!!!!

Here is the official announcement from yesterday’s “New Deals” section of Publisher’s Marketplace:

Author of the DIE FOR ME trilogy, Amy Plum’s JUNEAU, about a seventeen-year-old girl who has been raised to believe that her family, and the rest of their village, escaped World War III by moving to a remote area in the Alaskan wilderness – but when everyone in her village mysteriously disappears, she’s forced to set off in search of them, only to discover that her life has been a lie and there never was a third World War,

to Tara Weikum at Harper Children’s, in a good deal, for two books, for publication in Summer 2014 and Summer 2015, by Stacey Glick at Dystel & Goderich Literary Management (world English).

I’m so excited about the books, and am already in love with my characters. I can’t wait to bring you Juneau and Miles’s story. I hope you find them as amazing as I do!
