Congratulations to Tessa Elwood!

Congratulations to HWKT’s Tessa Elwood! Here’s the scoop from Publishers Weekly:

Running Press Gets ‘Hungry’ With Elwood
Tessa Elwood sold Hunger, Heart, Fuel, Nation to Lisa Cheng at Running Press. Cheng took world rights, in a two-book deal, to the YA novel from Victoria Marini at Gelfman Schneider. Marini said the novel is a “space Regency,” calling it “Game of Thrones in space.” In the novel, a girl takes her sister’s place “in an arranged political marriage between two intergalactic royal houses.” Marini added that the stakes are raised when the heroine finds “she may be the illegitimate daughter of her family’s sworn enemy.” Elwood is a Web designer and has worked for a number of YA authors, including Amy Zhang and Mindee Arnett.
