I’m pleased to share more good news, which recently appeared in Publisher’s Weekly:
Zachary Clark at Scholastic has bought The Hacker’s Key, a middle grade debut by Jon Skovron (the Empire of Storms trilogy; The Ranger of Marzanna). Pitched as Alex Rider meets Ally Carter, the novel features a girl raised by a criminal mastermind who must use her unique skill set to locate a dangerous weapon and keep it away from government agents and villainous syndicates alike. Publication is slated for fall 2020; Jill Grinberg at Jill Grinberg Literary Management did the deal for world English rights.
Yes, my first middle grade novel! Writing it was an absolute delight. It’s a globe-trotting non-stop adventure, chock full of secret agents and STEM. I can definitely see myself writing more for this age group. Heck, if sales are strong enough to interest Scholastic, maybe even a sequel to this one.
