The Rephaim are headed to North America

I’m extremely excited to announce that the first two books of the Rephaim series (Shadows and Haze) will be published in Canada and the United States.

Tundra Books has taken on the North American rights, and I’m humbled to be joining this highly reputable publishing house. (Tundra Books is Canada’s oldest English language children’s publisher and in 2012 became a division of Random House of Canada Limited. It publishes children’s and young adult fiction.)

Timeframes are still being finalised, but US and Canadian readers can expect to find Shadows in-store sometime in 2013.

Meanwhile, Haze is scheduled for release in Australia and New Zealand in the first half of 2013 and will appear in North America some time after that.

Stay tuned for firm details on all release dates.

Huge thanks to Anne Beilby, Rights Manager at Text Publishing, for all her hard work in bringing this together.

(The lack of exclamation points above is my attempt to play it cool, but the fact I’m still grinning as I write this is an indication of how excited I am.)

About Me

I’m the author of the Rephaim series and The Undercurrent.

For my day job, I’m a writer-journalist-professional communicator, where my writing involves a lot less profanity.

I grew up in regional South Australia and now live in the Scenic Rim with my husband and a retired greyhound.

If you’re interested in how I came to land a publishing deal, you can read the short version in this post from August 2011. There’s a longer version (in a guest post) here.

Paula Weston
