Podcaster Dana Goldstein's SHIFT and FLOW have sold to Chrissy Willis at Young Dragons Press in a two-book deal.

Pitched as having the camaraderie and adventure of HOLES with the environmental conscience of HOOT, the main character notices strange animal behavior and other weird ecological and geological events. With the help of his friends and his foundation in science, he comes up with a theory that tests himself and his relationship with his father.

"Dana captures the middle-grade voice and interweaves big environmental issues in with day-to-day family and friend relationships in a masterful way,” says The Rights Factory agent Stacey Kondla. “This is a STEM novel that will inspire kids with a main character they can relate to."

SHIFT and FLOW are scheduled for publication in 2023.

WELCOME TO PLANET LARA, PLANET LARA: TEMPEST, and PLANET LARA: SANCTUARY by Jennifer Sommersby (writing as Eliza Gordon) has sold audio rights to Lorna Henry at Dreamscape Media in a three-book deal.

“I enjoyed meeting the main character, Lara J. Clarke, in WELCOME TO PLANET LARA very much! She is flawed yet likeable and hilarious,” said TRF literary agent Stacey Kondla. “This “enviromance” series is exactly the smart, fun kind of escape everyone needs this year. I’m so thrilled that audiobook listeners will get to meet and enjoy Lara too!”

Elaine Dewar is one of the best investigative journos out there. She managed to track COVID stuff that most of us missed early on and even more recently. Her book, ON THE ORIGIN OF THE DEADLIEST PANDEMIC IN 100 YEARS: AN INVESTIGATION is pubbing at the end of the month. We wanted to show you the gorgeous cover, and encourage you to pre-order it at your favourite bookseller if you like detective stories!
