Lauren Oliver Sells Her First Novel for Adults

YA author Lauren Oliver has sold her first adult novel to HarperCollins’ Ecco imprint. Rooms will be published in the fall of 2014.

Oliver is the 29-year-old author of Before I Fall, Delirium, Pandemonium and Liesl & Po. Fox 2000 Pictures already bought the rights to those first two books. Stephen Barbara of Foundry Literary + Media negotiated the deal with HarperCollins president Michael Morrison.

Ecco editorial director Lee Boudreaux will edit the novel, and described the book in the release: “Rooms was as instantly gripping as it was elegantly written, filled with characters and predicaments I still can’t get out of my head a week later. When I look at what Lauren has already accomplished as a writer, I’m filled with equal parts awe and amazement.” (Author photo via Jonathan Alpeyrie)
