Publishing Deals - Cremer and Strasser

Two exciting publishing deals were announced yesterday on The Bookseller, here and here:

Atom, the young adult (YA) imprint of Little, Brown Book Group, has acquired a paranormal young adult series for a high five-figure sum.

The two-book deal with d├ębut author Andrea Cremer was agreed by Euan Thorneycroft at A M Heath on behalf of Richard Pine at InkWell Management.

Atom will publish the first book, Nightshade, in January 2011. The series follows a werewolf guardian, Calla, through a world of forbidden love and secret histories.


Walker Books has acquired a teen trilogy from bestselling US author Todd Strasser.

The first book, Blood on my Hands, will publish in spring 2011 and tells the story of 17-year-old Callie Carson, a girl accused of murdering her best friend.


  1. OHH exciting - Blood on my Hands sounds really good :)

  2. Do we really need another werewolf book? LOL...

    Nightshade is a great title, though.

  3. I can't wait for both of these! :D
