Mobius has a home in the UK!

I’m so excited! I’ve been waiting since the Bologna Children’s Book Fair to announce the deal my amazing foreign rights agents closed there. Mobius sold at auction to Random House Children’s Books!

Random House UK will be making the book available in the UK, Australia, South Africa and many other British Commonwealth territories.

Disney-Hyperion acquired Mobius at auction in early March, and will be publishing it in the US and Canada. cbj, an imprint of Random House in Germany acquired Mobius on pre-empt a week later.

Here is the announcement from my wonderful new UK publisher, Random House Children’s Books:

Press Release: Deals Done RHCB Acquires New YA Novel In The Spirit Of ‘The Time Traveller’s Wife’

Wednesday 13 Apr 2011

Random House Children’s Books is delighted to announce the acquisition of Mobius by Tamara Ireland Stone, for a significant advance. The two book deal for UK and Commonwealth rights (excl. Canada) was secured by Kelly Hurst, Editorial Director and Lauren Buckland, Commissioning Editor, with Caspian Dennis of Abner Stein, on behalf of Caryn Wiseman of the Andrea Brown Literary Agency. Random House will be publishing in autumn 2012 alongside US publisher Hyperion.

Kelly Hurst and Lauren Buckland comment “Mobius is an astonishing debut novel; ingeniously plotted, achingly romantic and unputdownable. We’re thrilled to be Tamara’s UK publisher.”

Anna Greene and Bennett Cooper were never supposed to meet. Why would they? Anna’s a sixteen-year-old in 1995, fiercely determined to leave her Midwestern town and travel the world. Bennett’s a seventeen-year-old in 2012, living in San Francisco and trying to figure out how to manage his gift of time travel—an extraordinary talent that has its perks, but also drives a rift between him and the people he loves.

When a minor lapse in judgment turns into a life-changing incident, Bennett finds himself in Anna’s world: March 1995, Evanston, Illinois. Over the next three months, Bennett and Anna can’t help but fall in love, even though they shouldn’t. After all, no matter how much Bennett wants to stay in 1995, they both know that time will inevitably knock him right back where he belongs.

Tamara lives in California with her husband and two children. She writes YA fiction about travel, music, romance, and normal people with extraordinary talents. Mobius is her first novel.
