Direct from Publisher’s Weekly:

Sarah Dotts Barley at Flatiron Books has preempted Somaiya Daud’s debut Mirage, a YA fantasy/SF trilogy inspired by the author’s Moroccan background, in which a poor girl from an isolated moon must become the body double to the cruel imperial princess, and learns that life in the royal palace is far more dangerous and complicated than she imagined. Publication of the first book is planned for fall 2017. Annie Stone and Joelle Hobeika at Alloy Entertainment did the deal on behalf of Ammi-Joan Paquette at Erin Murphy Literary Agency for North American rights; Rights People is handling U.K. and translation rights.

Obviously, I am so so so incredibly thrilled to get the chance to work with Sarah, and for three books! Hopefully, there’s more exciting news to come!

As of August 16, 2016, rights have also been sold in the UK, Germany, Bulgaria, and Turkey.
