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.

Congrats! That’s great!
Thanks so much, Martha!
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 :)
Yes, I would have felt horribly guilty if it ended with book 2, with the Big Bad still at large. Hooray for final boss fights!
Above World is TOTALLY meant to be a trilogy, and it’s so happy-making that your publisher sees it that way. Congratulations!!!
Thanks, Greg! We will writing our trilogies at the same time! Suh-weeeeeet.
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!
Thanks, Eugene. So glad to be taking this journey with you in parallel!
YAY, Jenn!!! More Above World! YAY for trilogies.
SO happy that there will be more.
Thanks so much, Deb — and thanks for all your help with the books. You are awesome!
Such fabulous news! I’m so glad that we get MORE Above World awesomeness!
Thanks, Tiffany! We were both very wise in our choice of agents. :-D
Thank you, Stephanie!!! EEEEEEEE!!!
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!
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.
Thanks, Rae! Yippeeeeeee!
Big, big congratulations!!!!!!!
(Also: that just might be the cutest picture I have ever seen that was not of an adorable furry creature)

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. ;)
Oh, how I hope you’re right! Although I’ll settle for regular ol’ famous. :-D
Congrats! Looking forward to it!
I am soooo happy for you!!! They are obviously thrilled with your numbers for book one. Way to go. You look so joyful.
Yay! I’m so happy you are able to write a 3rd book in the series. Also, love the shirt.
Go, Jenn’s inner child!! Skip! Sing! Shout to the wind and stars. Wheeee!
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…
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!!!!!
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!
My kids are going to FREAK OUT when I tell them! Hahahahaha! Book 3!
