Simon & Schuster:

Simon and Schuster UK announced a major new six-figure deal for a YA trilogy by US author Andy Fukuda. Venetia Gosling, Editorial Director at S&S, acquired UK and Commonwealth rights in three books from Catherine Clarke at Felicity Bryan, sub-agenting for Catherine Drayton at Inkwell.

The trilogy follows 17-year-old Gene as he struggles to survive in a society where humans have been eaten to near extinction by the general population. The only remaining humans, or hepers as they are known, are housed in domes on the savannah and studied at the nearby Heper Institute. Every decade there is a government sponsored hunt. When Gene is selected to be one of the combatants he must learn the art of the hunt but also elude his fellow competitors whose suspicions about his true nature are growing. The first book, entitled The Hunt will be published in Spring 2012.


Books to check out:

The Crystal Point of the Mog Pogs by Don CambouThe Crystal Point of the Mog Pogs by Don Cambou (released as eBook on 19th January 2011) - The book is the first person account of an eleven-year-old boy’s adventures in the Mt. Lassen wilderness of northern California. With his grandpa, who’s six feet five and built like an NFL linebacker, Meriwether Lewis Bowman (“just call me Lew”), finds that the wilds are much wilder than he could ever have imagined. It’s a place where legendary beings like were bears and chupacabras do exist and they’re struggling for control of the natural world. Lew didn’t want any part of their ancient fight, but he finds himself at the very center of it.

The Noble Ones by Daniel Tinsley (released in May 2011) - On the surface, Aidan's life seems no different from any other young man living during the waning years of the 18th century; he has a charming girlfriend, a thriving clock shop, and a sizable stretch of land. While repairing his late father's pocket watch, he deciphers a hidden message that unlocks the truth of his lineage and plunges him into a world filled with the mystical . Aidan's journey takes him through enchanted forests, across sprawling country sides, and into the underbelly of corrupt cities where he battles political adversaries who will stop at nothing to maintain the status quo.
