It’s official! MOBIUS will be on bookshelves in Fall 2012 thanks to an amazing group of people at Disney-Hyperion!
Here’s what Publishers Weekly had to say today:
Disney-Hyperion Time Travels with ‘Mobius’
In a two-book, six-figure acquisition, Lisa Yoskowitz at Disney-Hyperion bought North American rights to Tamara Ireland Stone’s debut YA novel, Mobius. Caryn Wiseman at the Andrea Brown Literary Agency closed the deal; she said the book, which she likened to The Time Traveler’s Wife, is set in 1995 and follows a 16-year-old girl who delves into a tragic love affair when she meets a boy who has the ability to travel through time. Wiseman said the book has been getting heavy foreign attention, with offers already on the table from some countries, and interest rising in Hollywood. Taryn Fagerness, at the Taryn Fagerness Agency, is handling foreign rights.
We’ve been getting interest from the foreign market this week, so hopefully there will be more news soon.
