I am thrilled to announce that Candlewick has bought book 3 of my new Above World series! I originally pitched the concept as a trilogy, but my initial book deal was for two books. From Publishers Marketplace:

Children’s: Middle grade
Jenn Reese’s ABOVE WORLD #3, the third title in the science fiction adventure series that began with ABOVE WORLD, to Sarah Ketchersid at Candlewick, for publication in Spring 2014, by Joe Monti at Barry Goldblatt Literary (World English).

W00t! Hooray! Yippee! I absolutely love working with my editor and the whole Candlewick team, and couldn’t be happier that I get to do it for another book. Here I am signing the contract (wearing a Bruce Lee t-shirt):

From Above World

Thanks to Joe, Sarah, Candlewick, and all my friends who’ve crossed their fingers for me. I grew up reading trilogies and series, and my inner child is basically running around yelling “I get to write a trilogy!” over and over again. I’m going to let her keep going as long as she wants.

  1. Oh my gosh — I didn’t even realise you were only contracted for two books! It felt so much like there were going to be three, and that is how things ought to go, and I’m glad that Candlewick figured that out too :)

  2. I also assumed it was already a trilogy, so when I saw the news I was surprised, and then absurdly pleased. Can’t wait to read on!

  3. Very cool!

    As a side note, I don’t think I’ve visited your actual website in a while. I really like it — esp the dragon up top!

    1. So glad you like the new website design, Rachel! The dragon was a Photoshop brush I found online (attribution in the footer). I like its fierceness.

  4. CONGRATS! I just got your email….and I’m pretty much doing flips about that! ;) Seriously, I really think everyone is going to think I am just so very cool because JENN REESE emailed ME. ha ha….’cause I’m pretty sure you’re going to be (insanely) famous one day, very soon. ;)

    1. Thank you!! I still kind of can’t believe it. A trilogy!!! But soon my inner child will have to make some room for the woman who actually sits down and writes the words…

  5. Hi! I absolutely love above world!!i just need to know if there’s a second book and if so what’s it called. I HAVE LOOKED EVERYWHERE FOR IT BUT DONT STILL DONT KNOW!!!!! PLEASE HELP!!!!!

    1. Hi Cate!

      I’m so glad you enjoyed ABOVE WORLD! There is a second book currently in production. It will be called either MIRAGE or ABOVE WORLD: MIRAGE. Candlewick is just starting to work on the cover. I’m guessing it will be out in February or March of 2013.

      There will be a third and final book out a year after that, but I haven’t even started writing it yet. :)

      Thanks for stopping by!
