Orion Secures Marcus Sedgwick For Next YA Titles

| No Comments

Fiona Kennedy, Publisher of Orion Children's Books has acquired world rights in a multi book contract for new young adult titles by Marcus Sedgwick. This cements a long-standing publishing relationship that began with Marcus' debut novel FLOODLAND winning the Branford Boase Award, through titles which have been shortlisted for the Carnegie, Guardian, Costa and Blue Peter Awards, and, most recently, winning the Book Trust Teen Prize with MY SWORDHAND IS SINGING.

Kennedy says of Sedgwick: "I'm delighted that Marcus has chosen to invest his publishing future with us at Orion Children's Books. He has achieved so much in a short time, has a devoted and constantly increasing fanbase, and is poised to move from 'ones to watch' to becoming a regular chart topper."
