Six-figure US Book Deal for New York Times Bestselling Author, Catherine Fisher

Hodder Children's Books have announced a 'six-figure' deal for Catherine Fisher's new sequence, The Chronoptika.

Andy Sharp, Group Rights and Digital Director for Hachette Children's Books, brokered the three book deal with Dial in the US.

Dial, which is part of the Penguin Group, will publish the first book in The Chronoptika sequence, The Obsidian Mirror, in winter 2013, a year after its UK publication in October 2012.

Dial has previously successfully published Catherine Fisher's Incarceron and Sappique both of which made the New York Times bestseller lists.

From the Press Release:

Andy Sharp, Group Rights and Digital Director for Hachette Children's Books, says: "We're really excited that Dial will be publishing The Obsidian Mirror in North America. Dial has been brilliantly successful with Catherine's previous books - both Incarceron and Sappique were New York Times bestsellers - so we should have another bestseller on our hands next year!"

Catherine Fisher's previous sequence, The Oracle, was a highly acclaimed international success, shortlisted for the Whitbread Children's Award in the UK, and for the Bram Stoker Award in the US.

Hodder Children's Books are excited that Catherine Fisher's The Obsidian Mirror will become a sequence of books and that Dial are on board to publish the first three in the US.
