Sisters Red

Posted By on Nov 6, 2008 | 154 comments


I’m thrilled to announce:

Jackson Pearce’s second novel, SISTERS RED, a modernization of Little Red Riding Hood meets Buffy the Vampire Slayer, to Jill Dembowski and Andrea Spooner at Little, Brown, in a pre-empt, in a two-book deal, by Jenoyne Adams at Bliss Literary Agency (world). jadams@blissliterary.com

Yesterday I gave my grandfather’s eulogy; at the exact moment that I was getting up to do so, my agent was calling to let me know about Little Brown’s offer. I couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful way to end the day, and I know Papa would have been so, so proud and happy for me.

I’m a little overwhelmed and still somewhat dazed at how fortunate I am, to have houses like Little Brown and Harper Collins publishing my books with such enthusiam. I feel a little like I’m living in a Lifetime movie or something. Shall I cue the sappy music and questionable hairstyles?

  2. if i lived in ga, i’d buy you three boxes of pudding pops. 1 for condolences (losing a grandparent is so hard), 1 for big huge congratulations (selling your books is so exciting!!), and a third just for being awesome. :-)

  3. Not too original at this point, but heartfelt congrats and deepest condolences. Seems the give and take of things sometimes, doesn’t it?

    • Thank you so much! I’m really glad you liked the story. :)
      The next book is SWEETLY, and the book after that is PURITY– you can find more info about them on the Books page of this website.
