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):

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.
