Oh, I have been waiting so long to tell you guys about this!
Barry Lyga’s THE SECRET SEA, pitched as a 21st-century WRINKLE IN TIME, about three friends who find themselves plunged into a world of quantum physics, a rare disease that only affects identical twins, and a mysterious fact about a real-life global catastrophe, to Liz Szabla at Feiwel and Friends, for publication in Spring 2016, by Kathleen Anderson at Anderson Literary Management (NA).
I sold The Secret Sea two years ago (almost to the day!). For various (boring) reasons, we had to keep it under wraps. But now it’s officially announced and I am beyond thrilled.
I am so freakin’ excited about this book! I can’t even explain it. It’s middle grade, but that doesn’t mean I’m pulling my punches. You’ll definitely know the guy who wrote I Hunt Killers was behind this.
But it’s so much more than that. There’s a scope to this book, a breadth that I’ve never achieved before in a published book. This is precisely the kind of story I always imagined myself telling when I was a kid and I daydreamed about being an author.
It took a long damn time, but it’s finally here. (Well, almost. You gotta wait ’til next year. Don’t complain — I’ve been waiting my whole life.)
I will have more to say on this very soon!
