D.J. MacHale Inks Book Deal for Trilogy

Pendragon author D.J. MacHale has landed a deal with Penguin Young Readers Group’s Razorbill imprint for a new science-fiction trilogy.

The first book will be released in summer 2013. Razorbill senior editor Laura Arnold negotiated the deal with Richard Curtis of the Richard Curtis Agency. Arnold described the series: “his new trilogy packs a clean punch, blending mystery and sci-fi in an exhilarating and action-packed adventure.”

According to the release, MacHale’s new series stars “Tucker Pierce, a teenager whose tranquil coastal community is invaded by a mysterious branch of the U.S. military called SYLO.”

As an author, MacHale (pictured, via) is best known for his 10-volume middle grade series, Pendragon: Journal of an Adventure Through Time & Space. He has written, produced and directed a number of movies and TV shows for young audiences.
