BIG NEWS! THE CHRONAL ENGINE: AHEAD OF TIME

I am delighted to announce that Clarion Books (Houghton Mifflin Harcourt) will be publishing my new novel, THE CHRONAL ENGINE: AHEAD OF TIME (tentative title). Tentative pub date is 2012.

Thanks to my agent, Ginger Knowlton, and new editor, Daniel Nayeri (co-author (with his sister Dina) of the ANOTHER series from Candlewick)!

Per today's Publisher's Marketplace: "Using their reclusive grandfather's time machine, a trio of contemporary teens travel to the Age of the Dinosaurs to solve a family mystery and rescue their sister..."

Grr...

This sounds amazing! The market needs more time travel and sci-fi for sure! I'll be sure to let the sci-fi readers on staff at BookPeople know when we get closer to the release, 'cause they're going to want to handsell this! CONGRATS!
