SOLD! Congratulations to JCJB!

Many congratulations to JCJB on the sale of her debut YA graphic novel to First Second Books!

From Publishers Weekly:

Kiara Valdez at First Second has acquired, in a preempt, Anamnesis by JCJB, pitched as Studio Ghibli meets Yoruban folklore. The manga-style YA graphic novel debut follows Isra, a narcoleptic, romance novel-obsessed witch living in a magical but war-stricken land, who draws power from memories and teams up with a ragtag group of travelers to save her world. Publication is scheduled for winter 2026; Jas Perry at KT Literary brokered the deal for world rights.
