It's hard to see, but it says Brazilian rights to Melissa Hurst's THE EDGE OF FOREVER, to Record, in a very-nice deal, in a pre-empt, in a two-book deal, by Joao Paulo Riff at Riff Agency, in association with Kathleen Ortiz at New Leaf Literary & Media on behalf of Suzie Townsend.
So yes, THE EDGE OF FOREVER is going to be published in Brazil!!! Woohoooooooooo!!!!! *pause to dance*
Um, okay, now that I'm sort of calm again, I can share with you how all of this came about. Super Agent Suzie and Super Agent Pouya decided to submit THE EDGE OF FOREVER to some film producers at the same time the manuscript was sent to editors in New York. I settled down and expected a very long wait, but just two weeks later I got a call from Super Agent Kathleen. She said one of the film scouts was also a scout for foreign rights and loved THE EDGE OF FOREVER so much that she took it to her foreign publishers. Next thing we know, Kathleen received an email with an offer from their Brazilian co-agent. They wanted to know if we'd accept a pre-empt offer and I was like YESYESYESYESYES!
So I can definitely say I LOVE BRAZIL!!!!!!!
