So, the news is now out: I am writing a new novel in collaboration with Peter Facinelli and Rob DeFranco.
Here’s what Publishers Weekly had to say:
Alvina Ling at Little, Brown has bought After the Red Rain, a YA novel from Twilight producer Peter Facinelli, Hollywood producer Rob DeFranco, and YA author Barry Lyga. The book is set in a future world of environmental collapse and mass poverty, where a mysterious boy named Rose discovers he possesses inhuman powers that can irrevocably change the lives of everyone on the planet.
I don’t have much more to contribute, other than that Peter and Rob are pretty much the antithesis of other “Hollywood guys” I’ve met in my career. I’m having a lot of fun working on my first-ever collaboration, and I think you guys will dig After the Red Rain. As is typical for my career, it’s nothing like anything else I’ve written.
The book won’t be out until Summer 2015 — y’all still have to read the last novel in the I Hunt Killers trilogy first!
