|Doing research for the Sequel to Surviving Bear Island.|
I’m thrilled to announce that there will be a Sequel to Surviving Bear Island coming out in 2018, and another middle grade adventure to follow!!
From Publishers Marketplace: June 14, 2017 – Paul Greci
Children’s: Middle grade
JLG winner for Surviving Bear Island Paul Greci‘s untitled sequel, pitched as another Alaskan Hatchet and Far North-like adventure/wilderness/survival tale, to Eileen Robinson at Move Books, in a two-book deal, for publication in 2018, by Amy Tipton at Signature Literary Agency.
Thanks to my agent Amy Tipton for finding a home for more of my middle grade adventure stories!! We’ve been working together for six years now!
And, I’m looking forward to continuing to work with Eileen Robinson and all the other fine folks at Move Books!!
|The Sequel is set in Interior Alaska where there are many free flowing rivers.|
The sequel (title forthcoming) took about a year to write utilizing the early morning hours before my teaching day began, plus some of the previous summer.
The second book in the two-book deal is a yet-to-be-written middle grade adventure (which I’ll share more details about at a later date), so I read with interest Caroline’s post last Monday. This will be the first time I have a contract for a book I have not yet written.
I’ll have a little more news to share regarding my young adult fiction writing sometime soon.
Thanks for stopping by.
Paul Greci is the author of Surviving Bear Island, a 2015 Junior Library Guild Selection and a 2016 Scholastic Reading Club Selection.
