Secret Series author Pseudonymous Bosch (a.k.a. Raphael Simon) has inked a deal for a new middle grade trilogy with Penguin’s Dial Books for Young Readers.
The not-yet-titled first book is slated for release in 2013. Literary agent Sarah Burnes (from the Gernert Company) negotiated the deal with editor-at-large Jennifer Hunt. Hunt will edit the project.
Bosch (pictured, via) submitted this “secret” statement in the release: “It is a thrill to be working with Jennifer Hunt again as well as with all my new friends at Dial. As my readers know, I love to eat, especially anything chocolate. I couldn’t be more excited to embark on this important search for three new cooks. If bread is the staff of life, then a good cook is…What? Not cooks, books? I’m supposed to write three new books? Oh, no—how distressing!”
