Three Pennies

Three Pennies

It certainly has been a busy week for Melanie Crowder: Her latest MG novel, THREE PENNIES, has just released from Atheneum (recipient of two starred reviews); and her forthcoming AN UNINTERRUPTED VIEW OF THE SKY, which is forthcoming from Philomel, just received its third starred review. It only seems right to add to the lovefest with the very exciting news that there are more Melanie Crowder books on the horizon!

Here is the blurb which went out in Publishers Weekly yesterday:

Reka Simonsen at Atheneum has acquired A NEARER MOON and AUDACITY author Melanie Crowder's new middle-grade fantasy adventure series, LIGHTHOUSE BETWEEN THE WORLDS. The first installment tells the story of twin siblings who stumble upon a secret society tasked with protecting humanity from nightmares seeping into our world. Ammi-Joan Paquette at Erin Murphy Literary Agency did the two-book deal for North American rights. Book 1 is set for publication in Fall 2018.

Another light to add to the constellation—mark your calendars and catch up on your reading stacks, because this is one you won't want to miss.

Congratulations, Melanie!
