So I've been sitting on incredible news for a week or so now. My debut novel, WHITE HORSE has sold to Atria (Simon and Schuster).
From Publishers Marketplace:
Alex Adams' debut WHITE HORSE, a post-apocalyptic quest novel about a woman who must guard and protect her unborn child while searching the desolate world for her lost lover, to Emily Bestler, in a major deal, including two additional books in a planned HORSE series, by Alexandra Machinist at the Linda Chester Literary Agency (world).
Film rights: Justin Manask at Office for Literary Adaptation
And from Publishers Weekly:
Alexandra Machinist at the Linda Chester Literary Agency closed a nearly seven-figure three-book world rights deal for author Alex Adams. Emily Bestler at Atria bought Adams's debut, White Horse, along with its planned sequel and another title, at auction. Horse, which Machinist called a "postapocalyptic quest novel," follows a woman searching for her lost lover while protecting her unborn child. Justin Manask at Office for Literary Adaptation is shopping the film rights.
My agent Alexandra is an amazing and brilliant woman. I'm so thrilled to be working with Emily and the team at Atria.
I'm so excited...and stunned...and excited all over again. :D
