I’m delighted to announce the acquisition of the Children of the Desert series by acclaimed fantasy author Leona Wisoker. The three-book deal, brokered by Judith Bruni of Leslie Rivers, International, covers Wisoker’s sequels to Secrets of the Sands, one of this year’s most talked-about fantasy debuts: the story of humanity’s uneasy truce with the ancient, alien ha’reye and those who would overturn it. The first of these, tentatively titled Bells of the Kingdom, is planned for release in Spring 2011.
We’re all very excited about this project. Leona is an enormous talent and a joy to work with, and we’re looking forward to bringing the rest of her sweeping, original tale to all the readers who enjoyed her debut.
We’ll be posting blurbs and a first chapter on the website soon. Thanks, Leona, for letting us take the rest of this journey with you!
