Terry Pierce does it again! Her beautiful prose is headed to bookstores everywhere, thanks to Chronicle and the brilliant art of Suzy Ultman. It's going to be amazing!

Congratulations, Terry!

Ariel Richardson at Chronicle has acquired Terry Pierce's picture book Love Can Come in Many Ways, illustrated by Suzy Ultman. This lovey-dovey novelty book celebrates the many diverse ways animals and humans show their affection, with felt lift-the-flaps for hugging arms, wings, and other snuggles. Publication is slated for Fall 2019; Tricia Lawrence at Erin Murphy Literary represented Pierce and Susan McCabe at Lilla Rogers Studio represented Ultman.

The Wicked and the Just

The Wicked and the Just
J. Anderson Coats

Back in 2012, J. Anderson Coats's debut YA novel, THE WICKED AND THE JUST, splashed on to the publishing scene with a furor. Scooping up such accolades as a JLG selection, 4 starred reviews, a half-dozen Best of the Year lists, and State Reading Lists from Washington to Maine, this book cemented her as someone to watch on the YA historical scene. (What is that you say? You have not yet read THE WICKED AND THE JUST? Run, I say, run thee to the bookstore and remedy this at once!)

But I digress.

After some amazing forays into MG literature, I'm thrilled to share that Jillian will be digging back into her YA roots—and not only that, but she will be returning to ancient Wales, to a close time period to her debut. Without further ado, here is the thrilling announcement:

Miriam Newman at Candlewick has acquired THE WICKED AND THE JUST author J. Anderson Coats's newest YA novel, LIES AND MIRACLES. Set in twelfth-century Wales, this bittersweet historical epic tells the story of seventeen-year-old Elen, who, having spun a quick falsehood when captured by a band of raiders, finds that her life now depends on living that lie every second. Ammi-Joan Paquette at Erin Murphy Literary Agency did the deal for World English rights. Publication is set for spring 2020.

This is truly a book-of-the-heart, and I can't wait for you all to discover it. Congratulations, Jillian!
