Please help us celebrate with Rebecca Roanhorse whose debut TRAIL OF LIGHTNING sold to Joe Monti at Saga Press!
Rebecca came to me via the query slush pile in July and from there things happened very quickly. I’m so excited for readers to get their hands on this book – it’s intense, beautifully-crafted and action-packed! As you’ll see from the press release, Joe Monti and I are pitching it as an Indigenous Mad Max: Fury Road – enjoy!
From Publishers Weekly:
Joe Monti at Simon & Schuster’s Saga Press took world rights to two books by debut author Rebecca Roanhorse, in a preempt, from agent Sara Megibow at KT Literary. The first book under contract, Trail of Lightning, is set on a Navajo reservation in the near future, after the collapse of society. It follows a young Navajo woman who, Megibow said, “hunts monsters with the help of an untested medicine man.” The book was pitched, she added, as “an indigenous Mad Max: Fury Road.” Trail of Lightning is scheduled for publication in summer 2018.
Rebecca is represented in Hollywood by Kassie Evashevski of United Talent Agency.
