It's a Deal... a BOOK deal

Yes, you heard me right... I have another book deal!!! I'm so excited to announce that I've accepted an offer from Bloomsbury Spark to publish my YA dystopian novel, DELIVER ME (Spring 2014). Finally, DELIVER ME has found a home, and I couldn't be more excited to get the chance to work with the fantastic Meredith Rich!

My rock star agent, Kerry Sparks, finalized the deal today (which, I have to point out, was her LAST day in the office before maternity leave). The timing was perfect. 

And here's the announcement from Publisher's Marketplace:



Kate Birch's DELIVER ME, in a dystopian society governed by people who are determined to create the perfect race, for the first time in her life a girl has a choice to make: submit to the will of the Union, or find a way to save her best friend before she is lost forever, to Meredith Rich at Bloomsbury Spark, for publication in Spring 2014, by Kerry Sparks at Levine Greenberg Literary Agency (World).

EEEK! I'm over the moon... and here's an illustration to go with it.

  2. Congratulations. DELIVER ME sounds a bit like The Handmaiden's Tale. I'm intrigued. Well done, Kate!

    1. Thank you, Bethany! None of my stories will never live up to anything that Margaret Atwood writes, but she's definitely informed it :)
