Hey, UK! The Storm is coming your way…

Exciting news, guys!! The Elemental Series has been acquired by the fabulous Constable & Robinson in the United Kingdom. I’m super excited that the series will be released in the UK beginning next February. Check out their press release, and the amazing cover art they’ve designed.

Constable & Robinson Acquire Brigid Kemmererstorm UK Cover

Tuesday 22nd Oct 2013

Constable & Robinson commissioning editor Victoria Hughes-Williams has recently acquired UK rights for a five-novel series by American author Brigid Kemmerer from Dorie Simmonds at the Dorie Simmonds Agency.

Much-in-Little, C&R’s children’s/YA imprint, will publish the Elemental series for the YA/crossover market. The first novel in the series, Storm, will publish in March 2014 – preceded with the e-novella, Elemental, in February 2014.

The Elemental series starts with a fight. When Becca saves Chris Merrick’s life, she is immediately drawn into the Merrick brother’s chaotic world. The Merrick brothers are Elementals − people who have a higher connection to the elements. They can control these elements and cause widespread chaos, such as earthquakes and tornadoes. Every single natural disaster has occurred at the hand of an Elemental, and that is why they are marked for death by the Guides. When history tries to settle the score, things get messy. The series follows the Merrick brothers, who each draw power from a different element: water, air, fire and earth; and who are hunted because of their powers.

Storm is Brigid’s debut novel and was nominated for the YALSA Readers Choice 2012 as well as being longlisted for the 2013 Inky Awards.

Hughes-Williams said: ‘Quite simply, Storm is a remarkable debut. We all fell in love with the immensely likeable, flawed central character of Becca, the pitch-perfect pacing and the swoon-worthy Merrick brothers. The Elemental series is action-packed, perfectly paced and hugely addictive!’

  1. Dude. Congrats. Though, you know I’m gonna have to continue collecting the KTeen covers, because otherwise they won’t match all the ones I already have. That is a pretty cool Storm cover, though, I have to admit. 😀

  2. OMG!!! Congrats!!! I am so excited more of the world is going to read your series…and WOAH that cover, how beautiful is that? Ah! Now I’m going to want the UK version for my bookshelves, too. Can’t wait to see what covers they come up with for the other books. <3 Again, congrats, that is really great news!

  3. I got so excited checking my Blogger feed, because I saw the cover and thought it was a movie poster. =P

    Even though a movie poster wouldn’t exist until scripting, casting and production had already begun. =|

    Congratulations! I had no idea the books hadn’t even been released in the UK. They’ve been missing out all this time!

  4. Whoa! How did I miss this?! I’m so happy to hear the Merricks are coming to the UK! I’ll still be getting the US copies of the remaining books, but it’s so exciting to know that more people will have access to the series over here. 🙂 Huge congrats, Brigid!
