Christina Lauren to Publish YA Debut with Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers

580848_351740691539619_2043863773_nChristina Hobbs and Lauren Billings, better known by their pseudonym Christina Lauren, have signed a deal Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers for their debut young adult novel, Sublime.

These two partners established their collaborative writing careers with the bestselling adult fiction series, Beautiful Bastard and Wild Seasons. The publisher has scheduled the release for Fall 2014.

Executive editor Zareen Jaffery will edit the manuscript. She negotiated the deal with Waxman Leavell literary agent Holly Root.

Here’s more from the press release: “Sublime is the story of Lucy and Colin, who are passionately in love. The only problem is that Lucy’s a ghost. With each passing day their lives intertwine more deeply, and even as Lucy begins to remember the details of her life—and her death—neither of them is willing to give up what they have, no matter how impossible it seems.”
