Melissa Marr has a new book deal, going YA to A


As posted on Publishers Weekly this week:


"YA author Melissa Marr has closed her first adult deal with her longtime publisher, HarperCollins. Merrilee Heifetz of Writers House brokered the deal for two books for mid-to-high six figures. Jennifer Brehl at HC took North American rights. Heifetz described the first book, Graveminder, as “Six Feet Under laced with ancient Irish evil and a dash of Faulkner”; the second book is currently untitled. Marr’s teen books Wicked Lovely and Ink Exchange, dark paranormal titles featuring fairies who coexist uneasily with the few humans who can see them, earned starred PW reviews and were Book Sense Picks."
Congratulations Melissa!! I cannot wait to read this series :)

  3. Oooh, I'm excited! :) I love Melissa Marr.
    I'm a little sad her next book won't be part of the WL series though. She left FE on such a cliffhanger. >_<
