New Book Deal!

I’m thrilled to announce I’m writing three more books for Sourcebooks Fire. I’m most grateful for their enthusiasm and support, especially that of my editor Leah Hultenschmidt. I also couldn’t do any of this without my wonderful agent, Sara Megibow, and everyone at Nelson Literary Agency. But the biggest thanks go to my readers, because you are all making this deal possible! I’m so glad you love my books. 🙂

Here are the details:

Author of CATCHING JORDAN, Miranda Kenneally’s RACING SAVANNAH, about an underprivileged girl training to be a jockey while working in the barn at a high-stakes horse farm whose on-again, off-again relationship with the owner’s son has an upstairs/downstairs effect on race day, pitched as Downton Abbey in the South, to Leah Hultenschmidt at Sourcebooks Fire, in a good deal, in a three-book deal, for publication in 2013, by Sara Megibow at Nelson Literary Agency (world).

RACING SAVANNAH will take place in the same universe as my first three books, and will feature one secondary character from CATCHING JORDAN and one secondary character from STEALING PARKER. Hint: Think younger siblings of main characters of both books. 😉

And now, I am going to celebrate with a Diet Coke. And then get right back to writing.

    Yayyy!!!!!!! congrats!!!!! catching jordan is my favorite of your books between stealing parker and things i cant forget!!! and as for racing savannah, i am a HUGE ridder myself, but i do english ridding and competing in hunter/jumper shows!!! I AM SO EXCITED!!! and earlier you mentioned that jordan and parker’s younger sibilings would be involved in racing savannah, but neither have younger sibilings, because they both have older sibilings!!!

You’re my favorite author in the whole world. Every time I read your book I smile. Can’t wait for your next book! Catching Jordan , Stealing Parker , and Things I Can’t Forget were all amazing so I know this next will be awesome too!

  34. olivia salazar says:

  35. Rachel says:

    Any chance there will be more than just 3 books in the Hundred Oaks series? My life wouldn’t be complete without these books so thank you so much for being such an amazing author!!!

  36. Miranda Kenneally says:

    @Rachel – There are 6 planned as of now.

  37. Joanna says:

    Yay!!! I loved reading Catching Jordan, i just love it so much!! Stealing Parker was good too, so was Things I Can’t Forget. Jordan was playing football in the fall right?? Because she and Henry didn’t talk to each other for like a few weeks.

  38. Joanna says:

    Yay!!! I loved reading Catching Jordan, i just love it so much!! Stealing Parker was good too, so was Things I Can’t Forget. Jordan was playing football in the fall right?? Because she and Henry didn’t talk to each other for like a few weeks. Also you have become one of my favorite authors.

  39. Joanna says:

    Omg!! There might be a wedding in Racing Savannah!! I’m thinking Henry and Jordan are getting married!!!

  40. Rachel G says:

    Can one of them please be like Parker in Things I Can’t Forget, how one of the main characters in the previous books has a big role in a new one? And just so you know, you are my favorite author ever!

  41. Miranda Kenneally says:

    @Rachel – thanks! My character Vanessa from Racing Savannah and Catching Jordan plays a big role in my next book Breathe, Annie, Breathe. 🙂

  42. Jenna says:

    Have you ever considered doing an epilogue to Catching Jordan? Sort of like a novella of her and Henry in college? I think it would be awesome!

  43. Mallary says:

    I started reading the Hundred Oaks series this weekend and I absolutely loved Catching Jordan!! I couldn’t put it down! I just loved it and after I read it I saw that there were more I thought I was gonna die of excitement! After reading Catching Jordan I was so sad I had finished and thought that was it. I read the first three books in two days and getting ready to read the next. Im sure I will love it as much as the others! I love how you keep the other characters from the previous books too! Please don’t ever stop doing that! I love reading the little updates about Jordan and Sam and Parker and Will 🙂 and I’m sure I will see plenty of updates about Kate and Matt in Racing Savannah 🙂

  44. Sara Salaparuta says:

    I loved the book Racing Savvannah and I think all of your fans including me would love to either have a sequel or a movie;)
