From MM’s blog:
From today’s deal section in Publishers Weekly:
“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.”
I’m thrilled that I’ll be working with Jennifer (also, yanno, terrified). Much much glee that Harper wanted the books, and of course, that my agent made it all happen so smoothly.
