As some of you may know, Anna is the author of the EVE trilogy, as well as DEADFALL, and her latest, BLACKBIRD. Her books have been translated into twelve languages, and BLACKBIRD is currently in development to be a feature film.
I cannot wait for you guys to see what’s coming next from this razor-sharp voice in YA. Welcome Anna!
I’m so excited to be working with the phenomenal Jordan Reeves!
Jordan is an eleven-year-old inventor born with a limb difference. She built her own glitter-shooting prosthetic attachment called Project Unicorn, which is the epitome of awesome. Jordan advocates for science, education, awareness, and gives back to her community. Not to mention she’s a superstar, and has appeared on Shark Tank, the Rachel Ray Show, done her own TED talks, and been written about everywhere from CNN to The Nerdist.
Jordan is a true superhero, and has such an amazing story and message to share. You should check out Jordan’s rockstar mom, Jen, on her blog Born Just Right, which is all about Jordan’s life and experiences.
Speeding through my inbox a few weeks ago I read a proposal that stopped me in my tracks– a y.a. fantasy so thoroughly original and unlike anything I’d read in a long time. A temple heist, demons that rise out of manmade surfaces, flying police wagons, a mid-air chase over the rooftops of a lavish city…
It should have been no surprise that this idea sprung from the brain of Ashok Banker, author of bestselling retellings of Indian mythological epics, the Ramayana and the Mahabharata series. I cannot WAIT for you all to read his new y.a. trilogy, RISE AS ONE. It’s like Six of Crows meets Ember in the Ashes, meets some other, wild, psychedelic thing you’ve never seen before.
And it doesn’t hurt that he is just the nicest guy you’ll ever meet 🙂
