I’m writing a trilogy!
After thinking about possibly writing sequels or a series, I started developing an idea that had been growing for a while. You know how much I love New York City. Some of you know that when I was in high school, I couldn’t wait to leave for college so my real life could start. My love for New York and the euphoria I felt that summer before college came together to spark the inspiration for my upcoming trilogy, City Love.
Here’s the announcement that ran in the Hot Deals section of Publishers Weekly:
Katherine Tegen Falls in ‘Love’ with Colasanti
For her namesake children’s imprint at HarperCollins, Katherine Tegen signed Susane Colasanti, for mid-six figures, to a three-book, North American rights deal for a new series called City Love. Emily van Beek at Folio Jr. (the children’s division of Folio Literary Management) said the series is a “romance and sisterhood” one, with “crossover potential.” The books are about three girls who, van Beek added, are “teetering somewhere between childhood and adulthood, and will clash and weave as they struggle to find the balance between their ambitions, their pasts, and their own complicated hearts.” The first book in the series is scheduled for summer 2015.
And the online announcement from Publishers Weekly Children’s Bookshelf:
I can’t wait to share more about this exciting adventure with you as details unfold. For now, I’m working on revisions of my eighth novel, which will be out next year. The first book of the City Love trilogy will be out Summer 2015.
