Amazon Author Sells YA Trilogy To Random House Children’s Books Imprint

Novelist Arwen Elys Dayton has landed a book deal with Delacorte Press for a YA trilogy that mixes fantasy and science fiction. Last year, Dayton published a science fiction novel for adults with Amazon’s 47North imprint.

Writers House agent Jodi Reamer negotiated the deal with Random House Children’s Books executive editor Krista Marino. Here’s more from the release:

SEEKER is the story of Quin Kincaid, a young girl who’s been put through years of brutal training for what she thinks is the noble purpose of becoming a revered “Seeker”. Only when it’s too late does she discover she will be using the ancient artifacts and sacred knowledge to become an assassin. From a remote estate in Scotland, to a bustling, futuristic Hong Kong, Quin tries to escape her legacy, only to find she can’t evade it.
