SOLD!! Congratulations to Jen Marie Hawkins!

Please help us congratulate author Jen Marie Hawkins on the sale of her next YA contemporary, ALL THE LONELY PEOPLE, to Hannah Smith at Owl Hollow Press.

From Publisher’s Weekly:

Hannah Smith at Owl Hollow has acquired world English rights to All the Lonely People by Jen Marie Hawkins (The Language of Cherries), a YA magic-infused love letter to the Beatles. When 17-year-old Jo Bryant has the chance to go overseas for the summer, she leaps at the chance to delve into her father’s mysterious death in London, where he was part of a Beatles cover band. Henry, a Beatles-hating photographer, has dark secrets of his own, and the truths they unravel together could destroy who they thought their parents were, and what they’ve grown to mean to each other. Publication is set for fall 2021; Hilary Harwell at KT Literary brokered the deal.

Don’t forget to check out her previous book, THE LANGUAGE OF CHERRIES, also from Owl Hollow!

Say hi and congratulations on Twitter!
