Simon Pulse senior editor Anica Rissi acquired world English rights to the first three books in a YA fantasy series by Orson Scott Card, via Barbara Bova of the Barbara Bova Literary Agency, in what was described as a “very good” deal. The series will follow teenager Ligg on his journey to save his world from destruction. The first book is due to appear in hardcover in 2011, with the others to follow annually. Card’s adult titles have been published by Tor.
