Publishing Deals - Julianna Baggott & Marissa Meyer

From today's Publishers Lunch Weekly email:

Julianna Baggott's PURE trilogy, a YA/adult crossover dystopian novel about a society of haves, who escaped an apocalypse in a futuristic dome-covered city, and have-nots, who survived the nearly destroyed outside world, to Grand Central, in a three-book deal.


Debut author Marissa Meyer's four-book YA futuristic, fairy-tale inspired series, starting with CINDER, Cinderella is re-envisioned through teen heroine Cinder, part girl and part machine, who must piece together her mysterious past before she can fulfil her destiny and save the kingdom -- and the rest of planet Earth -- from an otherworldly enemy; as Cinder's quest continues through the series, she finds allies loosely based Little Red Riding Hood (SCARLET), Rapunzel (CRESS), and Snow White (WINTER) -- as they join forces to conquer evil and find their happily-ever-afters, to Feiwel and Friends.


  1. Both of these sound ace. Yes please!

  2. Hi Karen! This post popped up on my google alerts this morning and I just wanted to thank you for the announcement! As I see you're in the UK, I thought you might want to know that the manuscript is currently with UK editors and everyone seems optimistic it will be released there as well. I hope you'll enjoy "Cinder" when it comes out.

    Thanks again!
