I am thrilled to share that I have a new MG fantasy novel on the way! I am so happy to be working with the brilliant Reka Simonsen and Julia McCarthy as my editors, and so grateful to my amazing agent Hannah Fergesen for making this happen. I can’t wait for the world to meet my two wizard girls, Antonia and Moppe, and join them on their adventures.
Here’s the official announcement:
[Image text reads: Reka Simonsen and Jula McCarthy at Atheneum have bought Circus Galacticus author Deva Fagan’s new middle grade fantasy, A Rival Magic. The story features book-smart Antonia and her rival Moppe, two apprentice magicians who must learn to embrace their strengths and forge a powerful friendship while facing enchanted creatures, voice-stealing forests, and sea monsters in order to save their imprisoned teacher and help the rightful queen retake her throne. Publication is scheduled for spring 2020; Hannah Fergesen at KT Literary negotiated the deal for world rights.]
