And what IS The Adventurers Guild, you might ask? I'm so glad you asked.
THE ADVENTURERS GUILD is a dynamite new series, created by two debut authors, and real-life best friends—our own Zack Clark, and his co-author, Nick Eliopulos (represented by Josh Adams of Adams Literary). The first book in this series, THE SEA OF STARS, introduces a broken world of monsters, dwarves, and elves. It tells the story of two friends are drafted into the perilous Adventurers Guild, only to discover a conspiracy that threatens to destroy the foundations of their city.
THE SEA OF STARS went on submission at the beginning of the year, and the response was swift and thrilling! The book ended up going to a heated auction, where it was finally acquired in a three-book deal by Kieran Viola at Disney-Hyperion.
We're so excited to have found the perfect home for this book—and you can look for it on shelves everywhere in Fall 2017. Huge congrats to Zack and Nick!
